Teeth Whitening Q&A

What causes my teeth to yellow?

Your teeth become dull and yellow due to many factors. You can control many of them, such as coffee, black tea, red wine, and colored soda consumption. Chewing tobacco and smoking discolor your teeth. 

 

Poor dental hygiene also leads to plaque buildup that discolors your teeth.

 

You may also get duller, yellowed teeth due to:

 

  • Aging
  • Genetics
  • Disease
  • Certain medications
  • Trauma that disrupts the enamel formation

 

Teeth whitening effectively brightens a smile that’s yellowed due to aging, smoking, and dietary habits. You may need other cosmetic interventions to get whiter teeth if you have discoloration due to trauma, disease, or medications.

Why should I do in-office tooth whitening?

There are plenty of over-the-counter whitening solutions, pastes, strips, and trays available. These contain low concentrations of whitening solutions, meaning they take longer to work and give you only minimal results. 

 

They’re also not customized to you, so they can be messy and inconvenient. 

 

Just one visit to Get It Straight Orthodontics and Family Dentistry can get you excellent results. You get customized whitening to a shade that’s right for you. Plus, the team protects sensitive tissue, like your gums, and can get at stubborn stains an at-home system just can’t. 

How does teeth whitening work?

A member of the Get It Straight Orthodontics and Family Dentistry team applies a hydrogen peroxide-based solution that, when activated by a special curing LED light, stimulates the bleaching of your teeth. The solution breaks stains down and leaves your teeth brilliantly white.

 

You’ll need just one office visit to get a whiter smile. Your visit reveals teeth that are eight times lighter than when you started.

What if I have sensitive teeth?

Your technician takes precautions during the whitening process to minimize discomfort for those with sensitive teeth. You may need a slightly less-concentrated version of the whitening solution.

 

They’ll also carefully cover surrounding tissue, such as the gums and inside of the cheeks, to prevent irritation.
