Who Are Good Candidates for Teeth Whitening?

Everyone wants pearly whites, but not everyone is a good candidate for professional teeth whitening. If you’re a heavy coffee drinker, a smoker, or have severely decayed teeth, you won’t get the results you want.

You will make an ideal candidate for our teeth whitening services if your teeth are yellow and you fall in the following category:

  • Not pregnant
  • Healthy gums
  • Few or no dental fillings
  • Over the age of 16
  • No chipped teeth

Causes of Discolored Teeth

You might not realize this, but many of our daily habits could be staining our teeth and making them appear less white. Other times, your discolored teeth might not be entirely your fault. Here are some reasons why your teeth might be discolored:

  • Illness
  • Staining foods and drinks (wine, coffee, berries, etc.)
  • Genetics
  • Certain medication
  • Smoking

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

During the teeth whitening process, we’ll place a lip retractor in your mouth to have easier access to your teeth. Then, we’ll cover your gums with a gel to protect them from the bleach. We'll polish and clean your teeth, then coat them with a whitening agent. We use peroxide to make the cleaning agent stronger and enhance its effects with a laser or light.

Finally, we’ll rinse your mouth thoroughly, and you’ll undergo a fluoride treatment. Your teeth may be sensitive after treatment, but it shouldn’t last for more than a few days. Call our office if it does. Avoid staining foods and drinks for the next 24 hours after your treatment.
