What Is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a safe and effective cosmetic dental procedure that removes stains and discoloration from your teeth so you get a whiter and more vibrant smile.
With only a few hours of daily wear, our special bleaching agent cleans stains right out of your enamel without altering tooth structure or existing dental work. Once you reach your smile goals, you'll only need occasional treatment to maintain your results.
Over time, our teeth can become stained and discolored due to various factors, including:
- Food & Drinks: Consuming dark-colored foods and beverages, such as coffee, tea, red wine, and berries, can gradually stain your teeth.
- Tobacco Use: Smoking or using tobacco products can cause deep stains on your teeth, leading to a yellow or brownish appearance.
- Poor Oral Hygiene: Inadequate brushing and flossing can allow plaque and tartar buildup, resulting in tooth discoloration.
- Aging: As we age, the outer layer of enamel on our teeth can wear down, revealing the naturally yellowish dentin underneath.
- Medications & Illness: Certain medications and medical conditions can affect the color of your teeth, causing them to appear dull or discolored.
Fortunately, teeth whitening treatments can effectively combat these stains and give you the sparkling smile you desire.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
Dr. Schofield, Dr. Martin, and Dr. Smagula use safe and gentle bleaching agents to break down the stains on the surface of your teeth. The process typically involves the following steps:
- Consultation & Assessment: During your initial consultation at Family Dentistry of Westford, we’ll examine your teeth and discuss your goals to see if teeth whitening is right for you.
- Preparation: Before the whitening treatment, your dentist will thoroughly clean your teeth to remove any plaque, tartar, or debris that could interfere with the whitening process.
- Application of Whitening Agent: We’ll apply a professional-grade whitening gel or solution to the surface of your teeth. This gel safely penetrates the enamel to break down the stains and discoloration.
- Activation of Whitening Agent: Depending on the whitening method, we may use a special light or laser to activate the whitening agent, enhancing its effectiveness.
- Monitoring & Reapplication: Throughout the treatment, your dentist will closely monitor the progress and may reapply the whitening agent as needed.
- Final Results: Once the desired level of whitening is achieved, your dentist will rinse off the whitening agent, revealing your beautiful, rejuvenated smile.
