Teeth Whitening Q & A

Why aren’t my teeth white?

Many people are bothered by stained or yellowed teeth. Many factors can cause teeth discoloration, including:

  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Drinking darkly pigmented beverages like coffee, tea, and red wine
  • Eating staining foods, like berries and tomato sauces
  • Smoking cigarettes or chewing tobacco
  • Taking certain medications

Also, as you age, your teeth naturally become less white. That’s because over time, the inner layer of your teeth called the dentin yellows. At the same time, the outer layer of your teeth, or enamel, wears down due to use. 

As your enamel thins, the layer of dentin shines through, making your teeth look more yellow.

How does teeth whitening work?

Fortunately, Dr. Shouhed and the team at Smile Perfector Dental Group offer a solution to tooth discoloration — in-office and at-home teeth whitening with Opalescence™ Boost™.

In-office teeth whitening

In-office teeth whitening with Opalescence Boost offers you the opportunity to get noticeably whiter teeth in just an hour. The Opalescence Boost in-office system uses fluoride and potassium nitrate to not only lighten your teeth but also decrease tooth sensitivity, strengthen tooth enamel, protect against cavities, and improve your oral health.

In addition, unlike other in-office whitening systems, Opalescence Boost requires neither heat nor ultraviolet light to work. Instead, it’s chemically activated. 

At-home whitening

If you prefer to whiten your teeth gradually at home, Dr. Shouhed offers Opalescence™ PF take-home whitening. This whitening system uses a custom-fitted whitening tray designed to fit your smile to hold the whitening gel against your teeth.

The Opalescence PF take-home whitening system also comes with five different whitening gel concentrations, which you use at different times to further customize your whitening experience. 

With these different concentrations, you can wear your whitening tray for as little as 15 minutes a day, or as long as all night. Typically, your teeth become significantly whiter within just a few weeks.

How do I maintain teeth whitening?

Once you’ve whitened your teeth, the last thing you want to do is stain them again. To maintain your whitening, you can follow a few easy steps, which include:

  • Brushing and flossing twice daily
  • Limiting your consumption of foods and drinks that stain
  • Coming back for dental exams every six months
  • Avoiding tobacco products

In addition, you may consider visiting Dr. Shouhed occasionally for touch-ups.

Don’t let yellow or stained teeth ruin your smile. Instead, brighten and beautify it today by investing in teeth whitening with the team at Smile Perfector Dental Group. To get started, reach out to the practice online or over the phone.
