Is Teeth Whitening Right For You? Over time, our teeth darken naturally. Changes in the color of your teeth can be accelerated by exposure to the foods and beverages we consume such as coffee, tea, and sodas. Other factors for tooth discoloration may include childhood medications or illnesses, tobacco use or improper oral hygiene. In most cases, the color of teeth can be improved with simple teeth whitening procedures. For cases where teeth are significantly stained or discolored, Dr. Snyder may recommend covering the tooth with a dental veneer or dental crown. At Home Teeth Whitening Our at home professional teeth whitening system includes a custom fit bleaching tray and special bleaching gel. This customized tray assures that the bleaching gel will be administered evenly and properly without causing damage to the gums or tooth enamel. At home teeth whitening treatment takes place over a number of weeks where the trays are worn either during the day or overnight, depending on the patient, for a set amount of time. Teeth Whitening FAQs How much does teeth whitening cost? Teeth whitening cost will vary depending on the type of treatment you choose and the desired results. Teeth whitening is relatively inexpensive and delivers noticeable results. Dr. Snyder offers flexible payment options including financing for qualified patients. What is the difference between professional teeth whitening and drug store teeth whitening? Professional teeth whitening is far superior to drug store and over the counter teeth whitening. While these products may deliver some improvement in the whiteness of teeth, the results are generally temporary and not as dramatic as professional teeth bleaching. Professional teeth whitening also uses specially formulated products designed to maximize results while minimizing side effects such as tooth and gum sensitivity. Trays used in professional teeth whiting are custom made to fit the exact contours of your teeth and ensure consistent results. How long does teeth whitening last? The results of professional teeth whitening can be very long lasting with the proper care and maintenance. Following treatment, you should avoid dark foods and beverages that are likely to discolor teeth. Drinking with a straw may help. Avoid cigarette smoking and other tobacco products. Will teeth whitening make my teeth sensitive to cold drinks and foods? Some patients experience mild tooth sensitivity especially to cold foods and beverages. These side effects typically go away in a couple days following treatment. The teeth whitening products we choose are designed to limit tooth and gum sensitivity.
