Most whitening methods contain carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide as the active ingredient, which falls under peroxide-containing bleaching agents. While both may easily penetrate the enamel and produce appealing results, the concentration of either of these substances defines the whitening system's power, effectiveness, and safety level.
The bleaching agent reacts chemically with the stained molecules in teeth whitening systems. The stains and discoloration are broken up and eliminated as the latter oxidizes.
Am I a Candidate for Teeth Whitening?
You may be a candidate for professional teeth whitening if you are experiencing discoloration but otherwise have healthy teeth and gums. Schedule a consultation with a dentist to determine if tooth whitening could be right for you. Some patients, such as those who are pregnant or sensitive to whitening agents, may not be candidates for professional whitening.
What Should I Expect When I Get My Teeth Whitened?
Teeth whitening consists of a thorough cleaning and polishing the teeth, with all debris carefully removed. Your dentist will then protect your gums before applying a whitening agent to the surface of your teeth. The product will be activated and left on the teeth for several minutes before washing off with water. Your results will vary according to the natural shade of your teeth and the degree of discoloration. Still, it is normal for patients to experience a lightening of several shades in a single visit.
What Type of Post-Treatment Care is Required After Having My Teeth Whitened?
It is normal to experience some tooth sensitivity following a professional whitening treatment. You may be instructed to avoid consuming highly pigmented beverages for at least 24 hours to prevent the teeth from becoming stained again. Examples include tea, coffee, and wine. Depending on your results and long-term teeth whitening goals, you may also be sent home from your procedure with an at-home whitening kit for later use.

They are the most contentious dentistry I've ever used. We moved 45 mins away and still travel back to them as there is no place better.

All staff is warm and pleasant from the ladies at the front desk to their payment advisor to the doctors! A special shout out to Gazal for being understanding and reassuring during my dental treatment!! She has a pretty light hand as well which is a plus!
I was looking for a new dentist near my home and asked a friend where she goes. I am so happy with the referral. The staff is so polite, friendly and supportive. I was able to get so much done and did not feel pressured. They are so honest too. My daughter was hesitant but was throughly pleased with her experience too.
Amazing dentist office. Everyone is friendly and caring. Been getting cavities done and Dr.G is very kind and caring. I have high anxiety when it comes to getting work done and Dr.G was patient with me. The dental assistant Lora was kind and great as well even helped held my hand when I was scared. Great place to go to, would definitely recommend to friends and family.
