Teeth Whitening Q & A

Why aren’t my teeth whiter?

Your teeth can become dull or discolored for a number of reasons, including:

  • Bad at-home care
  • Consuming food or drinks with dark pigments, like coffee, red wine, or soda
  • Smoking cigarettes or chewing tobacco
  • Early exposure to tetracycline or doxycycline antibiotics
  • Certain medications

Age can sometimes be a factor, as the hard, outer enamel of your teeth gets thinner over time, which gradually exposes the soft, inner dentin, which gets more yellow as you get older. And genetics can play a role as well, since some people are genetically predisposed to have thinner enamel.

How do I whiten my teeth?

Diamond Dental offers two types of professional-grade whitening treatments:

In-office whitening

In-office whitening is the fastest way to get a luminous smile with results that are immediately noticeable after an hour-long treatment.

Your dentist covers your gums and tooth-root surfaces with a protective barrier and uses a thin, plastic device called a retractor to hold your lips and cheeks away from your teeth.

With your gums and lips protected, your dentist paints professional-strength hydrogen peroxide gel on your teeth, whitening your teeth up to eight shades lighter in a single hour.

Take-home whitening

Take-home whitening is a great way to improve your smile from the luxury of your own home. Your dentist makes custom bleaching trays from an impression of your smile.

You fill the trays with a professional-grade bleaching solution and wear them for about an hour a day for a few weeks until your teeth reach your desired shade of white.

Whichever whitening process you end up choosing, your dentist at Diamond Dental first gives you an oral exam to make sure your discoloration isn’t the result of a dental condition that needs to be treated.

If you’re suffering from a particular dental concern, your dentist needs to get your smile healthy before bleaching it.

Can’t I just whiten my teeth with over-the-counter products?

You shouldn’t. Despite their popularity, over-the-counter whitening strips and trays are no substitute for a professional-grade treatment.

The bleaching solution in these products isn’t as strong as what you get with Diamond Dental, and because the strips and trays aren’t designed for your unique smile or being administered by a professional, the bleaching solution can leak out and irritate your gums.

If you want whiter teeth, get it done right. Book your visit with the professionals at Diamond Dental today by calling the office or scheduling an appointment online.
