Teeth Whitening Q&A

What is teeth whitening?

Given that a smile is the first thing you notice when you are introduced to someone, it’s no surprise that many people want it to be beautiful and bright. However, it is common for teeth to become discolored over time for several reasons, including improper maintenance, disease, certain medications, and other issues.

As its name implies, professional teeth whitening is a popular procedure to whiten your teeth and restore their brightness. Access Dental offers teeth whitening treatments to their patients, helping them achieve a brighter smile in a convenient and easy appointment. 

What should I expect at my teeth whitening appointment?

Teeth whitening can take as little as 20-30 minutes, with many patients simply receiving treatment after your regularly scheduled dental cleanings and check-ups.

During your treatment, the team at Access Dental applies a special bleaching agent to your teeth. They then treat the bleach with a special light enhancing its effect.

Access Dental can also provide you with take-home treatment trays. These trays use a similar bleaching agent to give an extra dose of whitening power and can be used from your home. Speak with the team to decide if teeth whitening is right for you.

How safe is teeth whitening?

Professional teeth whitening is safe for most patients. Some individuals might be advised against whitening their teeth, such as those with peroxide allergies or other specific allergies. If you have crowns, dental bonding, or fillings, you might not be a good candidate for teeth whitening.

Having your teeth whitened by a dental professional ensures that the treatment is applied correctly and helps to eliminate unwanted side effects. The team at Access Dental can determine if teeth whitening will be safe and effective for you.

How long does teeth whitening stay white?

Teeth whitening is not a permanent treatment, as teeth can become stained again from consuming particular food and beverages. With proper oral hygiene, many people can experience teeth whitening effects lasting over one year.
