Teeth Whitening Q & A

What causes teeth to become discolored?

Your teeth are one of the first things people notice about you. Discolored teeth don’t give the impression you want. It’s natural for teeth to lose their brilliance due to several factors. These include:

Dietary habits: Certain foods and beverages, such as coffee, tea, berries, and red wine, cause staining.

Aging: As you get older, the enamel on the outside of your teeth thins, revealing the darker dentin within.

Tobacco use: Smoking and chewing tobacco discolor your teeth.

Medications: Some medicines, particularly certain antibiotics, can cause teeth to darken.

Accidents: A fall or blow to your mouth may cause the dentin inside to build up, darkening the affected tooth or teeth.

Teeth whitening is particularly effective on teeth discolored due to diet, aging, or tobacco use.

Why should I consider professional teeth whitening?

Many over-the-counter teeth-whitening products are available. These include toothpastes, strips, mouthwashes, and trays. Because these products contain a low concentration of a whitening solution, they take a long time to take effect and may not even make much of a difference in your shade, even after months of treatment.

At Revive Dentistry, you get reliable, immediate whitening results with a medical-grade solution that gives you quick, safe results.

What is involved in teeth whitening?

Revive Dentistry offers teeth-whitening results in a process that takes just 60-90 minutes. Instead of using messy strips or toothpastes for weeks on end, you’re in and out with whiter, brighter teeth.

Dr. Yazdani and Dr. Mortazie use a high-powered whitening solution, usually made up of hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, to whiten your teeth. The results are a smile that’s up to eight shades lighter. Your results last for six months to two years. Prolong the effects by avoiding staining beverages and smoking.

What if my teeth won’t whiten with conventional methods?

In some cases, discolored teeth won’t whiten with this in-office solution. The team at Revive Dentistry has options for you, however. Veneers, crowns, and bonding can give you the brighter, whiter smile you desire.
