Teeth Whitening Q&A

Why have my teeth lost their whiteness?

Several factors play a role in what affects the whiteness of your teeth, such as:

  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Smoking or chewing tobacco
  • Consuming drinks and food that stain (red wine, coffee, berries)
  • Certain medications
  • Traumatic injury

Aging also contributes to the discoloration of your teeth as the top layer of your teeth (enamel) begins to wear down, and the layer underneath (dentin) begins to show, which is yellow.

How does teeth whitening work?

Though you can find many over-the-counter products that claim to whiten your teeth, professional teeth whitening is the safest option, and it’s dependable and successful, too.

When you visit Woodlands Elite Dental Partners for your treatment, you first rest comfortably in a dental chair as the dental team prepares your mouth, isolating your tongue and soft tissues for protection. Next, your provider applies the bleaching solution to the top surface of your teeth.

The whitening process only takes an hour or less. After your treatment, you simply rinse your mouth and walk out the door with a smile up to eight shades whiter.

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

Now that you have a bright, white smile, you want to keep it that way. First, you should brush your teeth at least twice daily and floss daily. Good oral hygiene is key.

Also, if you choose to consume drinks or food that can stain, such as coffee, tea, or meals with dark sauces like tomato or teriyaki, be sure to rinse your teeth with warm water afterward and give them a quick brush.

The dental team at Woodlands Elite Dental Partners also recommends that you schedule routine professional cleanings every six months. Not only can these appointments keep your smile beautiful, but your dental professional can also check for any oral health issues that need to be addressed.

You can also schedule additional touch-up whitening treatments with the team, as needed, to keep your teeth their whitest and brightest.
