Frequently Asked Questions About Obtaining Brighter Smiles with Teeth Whitening

Question: How does in-office whitening work?

Answer: The patient comes to the office and we will place a protective covering on the lips and over the gums. We then apply a powerful bleaching gel to the teeth. The gel’s bleaching ingredients will be activated with a curing light. Stains are then lifted from the teeth, offering a brighter smile in one visit.

Question: Should I try the at-home option instead?

Answer: If you prefer to correct the issue at home, we can send you home with a set of trays and a bleaching gel. You will fill the trays with the gel and wear them for about one to two hours a day. Total treatment time can take anywhere between one and two weeks, depending on the severity of your discoloration. You can then keep the trays and any remaining gel for touchups down the road.

Question: Do you ever combine treatments?

Answer: We do! For cases of serious discoloration, we can perform an initial office treatment before sending the patient home with the trays and gel.

Question: What if my discoloration doesn’t respond to whitening procedures?

Answer: Should your discoloration be intrinsic, meaning forming below the tooth enamel, you may need a different solution. Fortunately, we have two options for masking teeth stains: dental bonding and porcelain veneers.
