Is teeth whitening safe for everyone?
Teeth whitening is a safe, comfortable way for any age, which desires a bright, white smile. Results and treatment time may vary depending on the level of staining and whiteness desired.
Is teeth whitening effective on existing dental work?
Crowns/caps, bridges, veneers, bonding, and dentures will whiten back to their original color. Like natural teeth, they accumulate surface (top) stain over time. The treatment will remove the surface stain, however will not be able to lighten them beyond their original shade.
How white will my teeth be after the treatment?
Each smile is unique. Genetics, age and starting shade all play a factor into the final shade result. Natural teeth shades are based on the tooth undertone and have a natural level of whiteness. We remove the stain from the top, enamel and dentin layer to expose your natural whiteness. Some people have more a white undertone, whereas, the majority have tan, yellow or brown undertone so even after whitening their teeth may not be as white. The vast majority of patients are able to achieve their desired lightness in one Ultra Premium or Super Premium Teeth Whitening appointment, however a second appointment may be recommended to attain desired results.
How long will teeth whitening results last?
Teeth whitening results are very stable, leaving you with a stunning smile long after treatment is over. There are a few factors that can make teeth lose their luster. Factors such as genetics, diet, age, some medications (chemo, tetracycline), and certain habits (red wine, coffee, oral hygiene, smoking) may affect the length of your whitening results. Fortunately, touch up treatments are quick and easy, helping you get that bright, white smile back. We suggest patients touch up their smile for 20 minutes every 4 months.
Will I experience any pain or sensitivity?
The vast majority of patients experience no sensitivity. Patients with known whitening sensitivity or have sensitive teeth have the option to add on the instaSEAL finishing treatment to the end of their appointment. This treatment deposits vital minerals and vitamins, plus eliminates any sensitiviy as it seals your new white smile. The treatment is designed for clients who wish to have the freedom after whitening to eliminate the "30 Hour Water/White Diet " and "no tobacco rule" plus prevents any sensitivity. We are the only company in Colorado with this sealant and no restrictions.
How is professional whitening different than strips or trays?
Professional whitening will remove the stain off all of the layers of the teeth; the top layer, enamel and dentin layer. When you use strips and trays it is carbamide peroxide and your teeth have to break it down into hydrogren perioxide in order to whiten. Most people complain of pain and sensitivity when using strips and trays as it drys out your teeth as it is whitening. This method of products can only help to keep off the top stain, but cannot remove the other layers of stain as for every hour you use them you only have 10 mintues of whitening and your teeth do all of the work. When you have professional whitening your teeth do no work at all and you have the full time of whitening with instant results. Professinal whitening will not harm your teeth or enamel and is much safer than strips/trays plus all of the stain is gone to expose your natural whiteness. It is much less expensive to have your teeth professinally whitened and it will last longer with better results.
