Teeth Whitening Q & A

Why do teeth become discolored?

Yellow, dingy, or stained teeth can dim your smile and make you feel self-conscious. No doubt, lifestyle choices can have a major impact on the color of your teeth. These include:

  • Eating and drinking stain-causing foods such as tea, coffee, red wine, and certain fruits and vegetables
  • Using tobacco
  • Failing to brush and floss regularly and well

As you age, your teeth’s outer layer of enamel wears away revealing the darker dentin underneath. This also contributes to discoloration.

Professional teeth whitening in the conveniently located Greenwich Village dental clinic of Dental House can take care of those issues. Over-the-counter whiteners, such as strips and toothpaste, aren’t as effective as professional products.

In some cases, teeth may darken due to the use of certain medications, trauma, or excessive fluoride. Topical whitening solutions don’t work to brighten these teeth -- even when of a professional grade -- but other cosmetic options are available.

 

What happens during a professional whitening appointment?

A professional teeth whitening treatment is fast, easy, and can restore whiteness in a single in-office appointment. No need for messy applications.

The procedure can be combined with a teeth cleaning and examination, too, if you’re interested in saving a little time. After your teeth are clean and ready, the dental team preps them for a whitening treatment.

A whitening solution is applied to your teeth for a designated time period. The amount and length of each application are determined by your desired level of whiteness.

 

Are there any side effects following a professional teeth whitening appointment?

You might experience some sensitivity for a few days following your whitening procedure. Here’s a professional tip the Dental House team recommends: For one week prior to your appointment, use a toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth to minimize post-treatment sensitivity. You’ll also be advised to avoid certain foods and beverages for a time period following treatment.

If you have a dingy smile that you’d like brightened, contact the Greenwich Village dentists at Dental House about a professional teeth whitening. Schedule your convenient, one-stop appointment by calling the office or using the online scheduler.
