Tooth Whitening FAQs

Tooth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure designed to lighten the color of teeth and remove stains and discoloration.

Tooth whitening typically involves the use of bleaching agents such as hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. These agents penetrate the enamel and break down stains, resulting in a brighter appearance.

When performed under professional supervision, tooth whitening is considered safe. However, it’s essential to follow your dentist’s instructions and use reputable products to minimize any potential risks.

While most people are suitable candidates for tooth whitening, it may not be recommended for individuals with certain dental conditions, such as gum disease or tooth sensitivity. A consultation with a dentist is necessary to determine eligibility.

The duration of tooth whitening results varies depending on factors such as lifestyle habits and maintenance. With proper care and occasional touch-ups, results can last for several months to a few years.

Some individuals may experience temporary tooth sensitivity during or after whitening treatment. This sensitivity typically resolves on its own and can be managed with desensitizing toothpaste or gels.

Over-the-counter whitening products can provide modest results for mild staining. However, professional whitening treatments administered by a dentist often deliver more significant and longer-lasting results.

Common side effects of tooth whitening may include tooth sensitivity and gum irritation. These side effects are usually temporary and subside shortly after treatment.

Tooth whitening is most effective at removing surface stains caused by food, beverages, and tobacco. However, it may not be able to lighten stains caused by certain medications, dental trauma, or intrinsic factors.
