Teeth Whitening Q & A

Why do teeth get yellow?

Over time, teeth become stained and yellow for a number of reasons, such as:

  • Drinking dark beverages like coffee and tea
  • Smoking or using tobacco products
  • Aging
  • Eating berries
  • Certain medication

Occasionally, staining is inside the tooth due to injury or genetics and must be corrected with veneers or crowns. In most cases, though, professional teeth whitening is quick and effective for the majority of stains.

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a noninvasive dental procedure that the skilled team at Dobson Warner Dentistry uses to lighten and brighten your teeth. The process involves special gels that bleach your teeth over the course of a few treatments.

What happens during a teeth whitening session?

Dr. Trang and his team believe the best place to whiten your teeth is right in the comfort and convenience of your own home. At your consultation, he customizes a kit for you to take home and use. You’ll receive specific instructions for how to apply the gel, how long to leave it on your teeth, and how frequently you’ll need to do a whitening session.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Yes. The gel you receive at Dobson Warner Dentistry is packaged in appropriate dosages and is deemed safe by the Food and Drug Administration. Unfortunately, over-the-counter whitening products like toothpaste, mouthwashes, and creams that you buy at the drug or grocery store are not regulated by the FDA.

In addition to being safe to use, whitening products that you receive from a dentist are more effective.

Does teeth whitening hurt?

Not at all. While your teeth are whitening, you’ll feel like they are coated in toothpaste. It doesn’t burn or hurt in any way. The procedure is completely painless, but some people report that their teeth are mildly sensitive for a few hours after whitening. If your teeth are sensitive after your whitening session, rest assured that it’s temporary and will subside quickly.
