Teeth Whitening Q & A

Grand Opening Specials

What are the causes of yellow teeth?

Many factors contribute to the yellowing of teeth. Certain medications, age, and the things you drink and eat can all contribute. Surface stains on the enamel of your teeth from drinks like tea, coffee, and red wine, can make your teeth appear yellowish. Smoking and tobacco are also big culprits.

Eventually, the surface stains can get even more challenging to get rid of, because they soak deep into the enamel of your tooth to the dentin.

Are you sure teeth whitening isn't dangerous?

Teeth whitening is not harmful if you comply with product directions and guidelines. The team at The Smile Artists offers laser whitening treatments for safe, effective results. Letting a dental professional whiten your teeth is safer and quicker when compared to using an at-home whitening treatment.

Laser whitening is approved by the American Dental Association for safety. You will not experience any pain during the procedure, but your teeth may feel sensitive from the bleaching solution involved in the whitening procedure.

If you are opposed to laser teeth whitening, The Smile Artists also offer Phillips Zoom QuickPro in-office whitening varnish as well as a safe and effective alternative to laser teeth whitening.

What is the laser teeth whitening procedure like?

Laser teeth whitening is fast and simple. Patients who have the treatment can whiten their teeth by an average of 6-10 shades after a 20-minute treatment.

You will need to wear a plastic guard to protect your gums and lips. Once the guard is on, your dentist will soak your teeth in a whitening solution. She will then use a patented laser to activate the bleach, prompting immediate whitening of your teeth.

Your dentist may recommend multiple treatments, but you should see results with each session. Some stains, such as those related to prescribed medications, may be deeper and more difficult to lighten. Laser teeth whitening is not effective on crowns or veneers, so you’ll only see results on your natural teeth.

The team at The Smile Artists can also provide take-home whitening kits. These kits are less immediate and will whiten teeth over a couple of weeks.
