Brighten Up Your Smile with Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a fantastic procedure that can help reduce staining and brighten your smile. It’s safe and effective when professionally done. But, when considering this treatment, it is best to familiarize yourself with all the facts. This blog details teeth whitening to help you make informed choices.

Why Teeth Whitening?

The first thing people notice about you is your smile. So, it’s no surprise that having stained teeth can lower your self-esteem. The enamel of your teeth can stain for a variety of reasons, such as:

  • Aging
  • Smoking
  • Chewing tobacco
  • Frequently consuming dark-colored fruits
  • Drinking too much tea, coffee, or wine
  • Improper oral hygiene
  • Certain medical conditions, etc.,

Many of these causes are preventable. However, after stains have developed, a smile makeover can be helpful. If you’re looking to radically change the color of your teeth, you need professional teeth whitening to get the job done correctly.

How Does It Work?

In your initial consultation, Dr. Mitchell will examine the condition of your teeth and determine whether or not you make a suitable candidate. Once you get the green light, we’ll start you on our desensitization routine, which can reduce tooth sensitivity by up to 80%!

If you opt for an “in office” treatment rather than our guided “at home” option, the procedure itself only takes about 60-90 minutes. A single “in office” visit can be as effective as 8-10 “at home” applications and generally results in teeth that are 2-9 shades whiter. That said, your results will depend on the type and severity of the stains. Also, if an important life event is coming up, it’s best to schedule the treatment at least three to four weeks in advance.

Are There Any Risks?

While teeth whitening is generally safe, some people can experience sensitivities. They might complain of mild and temporary sensitivities of the gums and teeth due to the use of a bleaching agent during the process. That said, the with our desensitization regimen, most patients don’t have any difficulties. Our course, everyone’s experience is unique, so if you have any questions or concerns about getting your teeth whitened, please feel free to give us a call!

Professional teeth whitening can range from about $100-2,500. On average, you can expect to pay around $400-500, with the costs slightly lower for take-home trays provided by your dentist.

Discuss the best solution for your dental health and budget with Dr. Mitchell to determine the most suitable way to address your unique needs and get an accurate estimate after a complete evaluation. For many, this procedure is worth the cost looking to brighten their smile with much less hassle, added comfort, and at a somewhat affordable price.

Is Teeth Whitening Permanent?

Whitening treatment can last from three to five years, provided you aren’t heavily consuming tea, coffee, red wine, or smoking – things that can stain your teeth. In many cases, the results can last for up to ten years. Those who practice good oral hygiene, i.e., brushing and flossing after meals, avoiding staining foods and beverages, etc., can see long-lasting results. And It’s important to understand that excessive teeth whitening, similar to excessive tanning is not healthy. As with tanning, teeth whitening is also something to not overdo as the treatment can weaken your teeth and damage the gums.
