Teeth Whitening Q & A




What causes discolored teeth?

Several factors may have caused your teeth to lose their brightness, including:

  • Food and drinks: such as berries, coffee, tea, and wine that stain your teeth
  • Smoking: nicotine causes your teeth to turn yellow
  • Medication: such as high blood pressure medication that causes teeth to darken
  • Injury: trauma causes your teeth to add more dentin, which darkens the tooth

Age is also a factor that contributes to discolored teeth since enamel thins as you age and reveals more of the yellow dentin underneath. But you can still whiten at any age!

Who is a good candidate for teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a safe and effective cosmetic treatment that can improve the look of almost anyone’s teeth. However, the experienced team at Heritage Comfort Dental must first examine your teeth and mouth to make sure you’re a good candidate.

Professional teeth whitening works best on yellow stains. Brown and gray stains may not respond as well to the teeth whitening agents

If you have veneers, caps,  crowns, or large fillings, your dentist may recommend a different approach to give you a brighter and whiter smile.

How does teeth whitening work?

The team at Heritage Comfort Dental uses the GLO professional teeth whitening system to improve the appearance of your teeth. In just one quick visit, GLO breaks down the stains on your teeth to reveal the whiter, brighter color underneath, and the entire procedure takes only about an hour.

You may feel minimal sensitivity to temperature after a teeth whitening treatment, but most patients say they felt no discomfort during or after their whitening visit.

How can I keep my teeth white after professional teeth whitening?

First and foremost, it’s essential to keep up good dental hygiene habits following teeth whitening, including regular brushing and flossing. Coming in for professional cleanings and checkups also helps keep stains from setting in.

The team at Heritage Comfort Dental may recommend limiting your intake of foods and drinks that cause stains. If you have a hard time giving up your coffee and tea, drink through a straw to minimize exposure to your teeth. Brushing after you eat and drink may also help remove stains and keep your smile white and bright. But it won’t matter, because Dr. Ney at Heritage Comfort Dental INCLUDES a take-home whitening kit to use anytime you wish after the initial procedure, with no additional cost!
