Teeth Whitening FAQs
Considering cosmetic dental treatment for the first time? Never completed teeth whitening treatment before? If you have concerns about teeth whitening but are still curious to see if it’s right for you, you’re more than welcome to give our office a call to learn more! We encourage you to take a look at the most common questions our practice receives ahead of your appointment. However, if your question is not listed, please let us know during your cosmetic consultation or over the phone.
Does teeth whitening damage enamel?
Enamel is made from the hardest material in the human body and is more than capable of receiving teeth whitening treatment without being damaged in any way. Not only does professional teeth whitening from a dentist effectively whiten teeth, but there’s no risk of it damaging enamel compared to home remedies you may read about online. Our dentists will help you determine the best whitening method based on your lifestyle.
How often do I need to whiten my teeth?
You may need to whiten your teeth more often depending on your day-to-day habits, including the foods you eat, how regularly you perform oral hygiene, and how often you visit our office for exams and cleanings. The better you take care of your smile, the less frequently you’ll need to get a touch-up. Those who take good care of their smile can expect it to stay white for at least a year or longer. Alternatively, you may need to complete a touch-up after six months if you eat richly-pigmented foods often or use tobacco.
Why can’t I just whiten teeth with store-bought options?
The problem with store-bought solutions is that they are truly meant to address stains that sit on the surface of enamel, rather than the deeper layers where stains tend to settle and become incredibly difficult to remove. Powerful bleaching gels with highly concentrated amounts of whitening agents are generally only available in dental offices as they require a professional to apply. Whitening products are ideal for keeping teeth whitened after they already received professional treatment, but they should only be used one or two times a week.
How do I whiten teeth at home?
If you decide to receive at-home whitening treatment from our office, we’ll break down the process of using the whitening trays step-by-step so you know exactly what to expect. For example, you should always brush your teeth before wearing the trays to ensure even coverage.
Does activated charcoal actually whiten teeth?
At this time, there’s not much evidence available on the effectiveness of activated charcoal as an effective solution for whitening teeth. In fact, many charcoal products are not regulated by the FDA, meaning it’s possible that you could damage your enamel rather than whiten it. Since the dentin layer (which sits directly underneath enamel) is naturally yellow, you may actually be causing your teeth to appear more yellow in appearance by using these products.
