Teeth Whitening Q & A

Smile Center Silicon Valley

Why Should I Get My Teeth Professionally Whitened?

Because whitening your teeth involves applying harsh bleaching agents, it’s best to have the treatment performed by your dentist. Otherwise, those chemicals can reach sensitive gum tissue, which leads to bleeding and irritation. Plus, if you leave the bleaching agent on too long, it can cause extreme tooth sensitivity.

Having your teeth professionally whitened means that you have a dental professional carefully applying the harsh chemicals and monitoring you every step of the treatment. Not only are you going to experience smooth, even tooth whitening, you’re also less likely to go through adverse side effects, like tooth sensitivity.

What Happens During a Teeth Whitening Treatment?

Before getting started, your hygienist cleans your teeth and goes over the shade guide with you. You’ll see the color your teeth are now and how many shades your teeth can whiten during a single treatment.

This step is essential because if you have composite bonding, crowns, implants, or other dental components, the bleaching agents won’t whiten them. You don’t want to brighten up your natural teeth too much. Otherwise, you may draw attention to false teeth or other dental components.

Next, your practitioner inserts a cheek retractor to keep your lips and cheeks away from the bleaching agents. After carefully applying the whitening chemicals, they use a specialized light to help them penetrate into deeper layers of your teeth.

Depending on your tooth discoloration and desired outcome, you might need to lie back and relax and let the whitening chemicals work a little longer. Once your treatment is over, you can brush and rinse and leave the office with a whiter, brighter smile.  

How Long Does a Teeth Whitening Treatment Take?

As one of the most in-demand cosmetic options, professional teeth whitening treatments are easy to schedule during your lunch break. From check-in to treatment, to signing out, you should be in and out of the office at Smile Center Silicon Valley in less than an hour.
