Teeth Whitening Q & A

What causes my teeth to be stained or discolored?

The enamel on your teeth is a light-colored, thin layer that covers the body of each tooth. Several foods and beverages can cause stains on your teeth, such as:

  • Berries
  • Pasta sauce
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Sodas
  • Wine

 

It’s not just the color of a food that causes stains. Food and drinks with a high acidity, such as white wine, damage your enamel, causing it to become darker.

How does teeth whitening work?

The team at Morning Dental offers professional whitening treatments that are more effective than whitening toothpastes and other products you can buy in a store. Over-the-counter whitening products may remove light stains from the surface of your teeth, but they can’t penetrate deeply into your enamel or break down stubborn stains.

Professional teeth whitening at Morning Dental works deep in your enamel to break areas of discoloration apart at the molecular level. The results of professional teeth whitening are impressive. You’ll find that your teeth appear several shades lighter, and you’ll want to share your dazzling new smile with the world.

What types of teeth whitening treatments are available?

Your professional teeth whitening can be customized to fit your schedule and comfort. Options for teeth whitening at Morning Dental include:

One-visit in-office whitening treatments

In-office whitening treatments use the highest concentrations of peroxide, the active ingredient in teeth whitening products. These products are safe when used by a trained and experienced professional and highly effective. One-visit treatments typically take about an hour, and you’ll see your stunning results right after your appointment.

Teeth whitening kits

Your Morning Dental provider can prescribe a professional-grade teeth whitening kit for use at home. Your kit is customized to accommodate your personal needs. Options include day or night wear and varying levels of active ingredients to accommodate your lifestyle, tooth sensitivity, and schedule.

Your caring provider may recommend a combination of in-office treatment and a take-home kit to achieve your individual teeth whitening goals.

Am I a candidate for teeth whitening?

If you have mild-to-moderate stains or discoloration, you are most likely a good candidate for professional teeth whitening. But if you’re pregnant, have an allergy to peroxide, or you have certain conditions, such as untreated cavities or gum disease, it might prevent you from having your teeth whitened.
