What Happens During Teeth Whitening?

During the process of teeth whitening, a hygienist will begin by using a lip retractor to assist in keeping your mouth open for the procedure, as well as placing gauze in your mouth to keep everything dry. A rubber dam will then be placed in your mouth to cover your gums, which will prevent your gum tissue from any possible damage and limit sensitivity.

A bleaching gel will then be painted onto your teeth, after which a light will be pointed directly at the gel to transform the oxygen in the gel and cause it to dive deep beneath your enamel to reach the color pigments.

Afterward, the hygienist will remove the gel from your teeth, paint on a new coat, and repeat the process. Depending on the treatment plan discussed with your doctor, this process may be done 3 or 4 times total.

What Causes Teeth to become discolored?

There are multiple reasons why your teeth may become discolored, such as:

Aging: Over time, the outer layer of our teeth’s enamel will wear away, exposing the yellowish dentin underneath, which will make your smile appear darker

Diet: Certain drinks (i.e. coffee, tea, soda, red wine) and starchy foods like pasta, rice, and potatoes can discolor your teeth.

Poor Dental Hygiene: Plaque and food stains will build up over time, but can appear worse when you skip out on consistent brushing, flossing, and dental cleaning visits.

Certain Illnesses: There are certain conditions that may prevent the development of enamel and cause tooth discoloration.

Medications: Some medications like antibiotics, some antihistamines, antipsychotic drugs, and antihypertensive medications can affect your teeth’ enamel. In addition, certain treatments, including radiation and chemotherapy, can contribute to discoloration as well.

Tobacco Use: Smoking, chewing, or dipping tobacco can affect your teeth.

What does Drill Dental Bar use For Teeth Whitening?

Our doctors utilize the Opalescence Teeth Whitening System. For the last 30 years, this trusted system has brightened over 100 million smiles and is the global leader in professional teeth whitening. Their original, patented formula contains PF (potassium nitrate and fluoride) and is sticky and viscous, so it stays where it’s placed and prevents the whitening gel from seeping out during your treatment, allowing both the gel and tray to remain in place, giving you the most effective results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Does teeth whitening last?

While it is unfortunate that they don’t last forever, your whitened teeth are resistant to staining, and with proper maintenance using your provided trays, your teeth can stay white for years to come.

How long until I can eat after getting my teeth whitened?

While you may experience some mild sensitivity in your teeth after getting them whitened, you can start eating again almost immediately. We do suggest avoiding darker consumables (such as coffee) for at least 48 hours to ensure the best results from your whitening. Please feel free to consult your doctor with suggestable food and drinks during this time.

Can I get my teeth whitened if I have veneers or crowns?

Due to the effects of teeth whitening, there is a very high chance that there will be a difference in matching the color with your older veneers or crowns. If you are interested in teeth whitening, discuss this with your dentist, in which case the solution may be the need to replace your existing restorations after your procedure for optimal results.

Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?

Unfortunately, there are always some levels of tooth sensitivity associated with teeth-whitening products. On average, there is very minimal discomfort, but the experience can be different from patient to patient.
