Do I Need Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin on teeth. Just about everyone aged 16 and older can benefit from teeth whitening. We can determine if you are a viable candidate through a comprehensive oral exam that includes a teeth shade assessment.
Extensive research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is safe. In fact, many dentists believe that whitening is the safest cosmetic dental procedure available, although it is not recommended for pregnant women.
How Does Whitening Work?
The complete tooth whitening procedure takes just over an hour and a half and includes these steps:
- Teeth cleaning if necessary.
- Preparation of teeth for procedure.
- 45 minutes of whitening.
By following our simple teeth whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be lighter than they were before the procedure. To maintain that bright shade of white, Dr. Hanania recommends regular professional cleanings, flossing and brushing twice daily, and occasional touch-ups with take-home gel available here at Mandarin Dental.REQUEST APPOINTMENT
What About Over-the-Counter Teeth Whiteners?
Consulting your dental professional is always the first step to whitening your teeth safely. Many over-the-counter tooth whitening strips, brush-on gels, and toothpastes take weeks, even months, to whiten your teeth only a few shades. The process is clinically proven to whiten your teeth nine to 12 shades in only three 15-minute treatments. Only a dentist can get your teeth this white, this fast.
What Causes Discoloration of Teeth?
Although there are many causes of tooth discoloration, the most common include:
- Red wine.
- Certain antibiotics.
- Excessive fluoride.
