Teeth Whitening Q & A
What is teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that makes the shade of your teeth lighter. Additionally, you can target and remove stains on the enamel of your visible teeth for a more uniform, enhanced smile. Teeth whitening is a simple way to make a big difference in your appearance and boost your confidence without requiring complex or costly dental work.
At Beaumont Cherry Valley Dental, Dr. Park and his team offer professional teeth whitening with Opalescence Boost™, a trusted system that allows you to whiten your teeth at home with custom-made whitening trays.
Which types of stains can teeth whitening treatments remove?
Opalescence Boost teeth whitening effectively reduces or removes stains affecting the enamel, or outer shell, of your teeth. You can get the treatment on just one tooth with a noticeable stain or across all of your teeth for a generally brighter smile. Stains removable with Boost teeth whitening may come from:
- Natural aging
- Certain medications
- Chewing tobacco
- Pigmented foods and drinks
- Improper oral hygiene
Stains on the dentin of your teeth, the layer below the enamel, may not respond as well to teeth whitening treatments. Dr. Park may recommend veneers to cover heavy stains that don’t respond to chemical whitening.
Is teeth whitening safe?
Teeth whitening is completely safe, especially when administered and guided by a qualified dental professional such as Dr. Park. The professionals at his practice offer Opalescence Boost whitening treatments for safe, reliable results. You can decide to have your teeth whitened in one hour-long office appointment or gradually over time with a take-home whitening kit.
In both cases, the Boost teeth whitening solution is completely safe to put on your teeth and in your mouth. The only discomfort you may experience is temporary tooth and gum sensitivity from the bleaching agents.
How do at-home teeth whitening treatments work?
A teeth whitening treatment typically occurs across two appointments. The first appointment is merely to make impressions of your teeth so that Dr. Parks can create clear plastic trays for the treatment itself.
At the second appointment, Dr. Park fits the trays to your teeth and provides you with care instructions. You must wear the trays for 30 minutes, twice a day for one to two weeks. If your teeth are heavily stained or you have a level of whiteness you wish to achieve, you can wear them overnight instead.
