The In-Office Teeth Whitening Treatment Process

Treatment Plan

During your consultation, you'll discuss your dental needs with your dentist. If teeth whitening isn't the best fit for your situation, we can explore alternative options. However, if teeth whitening is the ideal choice to enhance your smile, we'll create a tailored treatment plan to help you achieve your goals.

Procedure Prep

At your in-office teeth whitening appointment, your dentist will start by preparing you for the procedure. We'll place an expander in your mouth to gently hold your lips back and prevent them from coming into contact with the whitening solution. Additionally, we'll provide protective eyewear to shield your eyes from the lights used during the procedure.

Application

Once properly prepped, we'll carefully apply the whitening solution to your teeth and activate it with a specialized light. In-office teeth whitening treatments typically take 45 minutes to 1 hour. When the procedure is complete, you’ll leave the office with a bright, beautiful smile that’s several shades whiter.

Opalescence Teeth Whitening

A whiter smile is so worth it. With Opalescence teeth whitening treatments, you can brighten your smile in as little as 1 hour. And with the remineralizing power of fluoride and potassium nitrate combined with the advanced whitening agent, you can improve the luster of your smile while reducing sensitivity.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can teeth whitening damage teeth?

Teeth whitening, when supervised by a qualified dentist, won't harm your teeth. Dentists ensure the use of safe whitening products and prevent over-whitening. However, excessive use or improper application of peroxide-based whiteners can weaken teeth and damage enamel. To avoid risks, it's wise to steer clear of over-the-counter (OTC) teeth whitening kits from sources like Amazon, which may contain dangerously high peroxide levels. If you opt for non-professional whitening, stick to ADA-approved products with lower peroxide concentrations to protect your enamel.

Which teeth whitening products actually work?

Effective teeth whitening products fall into two categories. First, there are abrasive whiteners, like toothpaste with baking soda, that gently remove plaque and surface stains without harming enamel. However, it's essential to avoid charcoal toothpaste, which may be too abrasive and potentially damage enamel. Stick to ADA-approved whitening toothpaste for safety. Secondly, chemical whiteners containing peroxide are known to work effectively. They are available both over-the-counter and through dentists, but it's recommended to consult with a dentist for desired results while ensuring your teeth are protected from over-whitening. For a comprehensive assessment of safe and effective teeth whitening options, talk to your dentist.

Why does teeth whitening cause sensitivity?

While the precise cause of whitening-induced sensitivity isn't fully understood, it is likely connected to "dentinal microtubules." These tiny channels connect tooth enamel to interior nerves, allowing us to feel sensations in our teeth. The theory suggests that peroxide-based whiteners expose these microtubules by slightly weakening the enamel, which can lead to increased sensitivity. As enamel remineralizes and strengthens after whitening, the microtubules are sealed, which can reduce sensitivity. This explains why sensitivity caused by teeth whitening typically only lasts a few days.
