Teeth Whitening Q & A


What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental treatment that can make your teeth many shades whiter after just a single session. The Smile Dental team works with you to develop a customized whitening solution that best matches your needs, preferences, and lifestyle.

What causes teeth staining?

Staining is common and happens for many reasons, including:

  • Smoking
  • Practicing poor oral hygiene 
  • Drinking coffee
  • Drinking tea
  • Drinking soda, especially dark-colored ones
  • Drinking red wine
  • Eating popsicles
  • Eating soy sauce
  • Drinking dark juices
  • Eating tomato sauce
  • Taking certain medications
  • Getting older

Despite your best efforts, your teeth can still become discolored. That’s why teeth whitening treatments at Smile Dental are so popular. They’re simple, fast, highly effective, and can dramatically improve the appearance of your teeth and smile.

What teeth whitening treatments are available?

Among the many teeth whitening treatments you can choose from are:

In-office teeth whitening

During in-office teeth whitening at Smile Dental, your provider applies a whitening gel to the surface of your teeth while you relax in a comfortable dental chair. The entire process lasts about 90 minutes. You’ll notice whitening results immediately.

Home teeth whitening trays

Your Smile Dental specialist also offers at-home tray bleaching. The procedure uses a professional-strength whitening gel and custom-fitted trays, allowing you to whiten your teeth in the comfort of home. At-home whitening treatments often take 10-14 days to produce the most desirable whitening results.

Over-the-counter whitening products

Over-the-counter whitening strips, whitening toothpaste, and whitening mouthwashes are other teeth whitening options. However, they aren’t as effective as in-office or at-home professional-strength tray whitening.

How can I keep my teeth white?

Keeping your teeth white at home means adopting good oral hygiene habits. Brush your teeth with a fluoride toothpaste after meals, use an antibacterial mouth rinse, and floss your teeth every day.

Consume fewer foods and drinks that stain your teeth, eat a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables, don’t smoke, and have your teeth professionally cleaned every six months at Smile Dental. Consider in-office or at-home whitening touch-ups periodically to keep your teeth white.
