What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening refers to the process of bleaching your teeth to break up the concentration of stains and discoloration, giving your teeth a whiter appearance. After a professional teeth whitening, your teeth will be several shades brighter.

A professional teeth whitening appointment with the team at Genesis Dental is a cost-effective and convenient way to enhance your appearance. Professional teeth whitening delivers far better results than over-the-counter options. With professional whitening agents, there’s a higher concentration of hydrogen peroxide making the results noticeable and longer-lasting.


Why are my teeth stained or discolored?

The most common causes of tooth stains and discolorations are from certain food and drinks. Some examples of stain-causing foods and beverages include:

  • Coffee
  • Dark tea
  • Red wine
  • Mustard
  • Berries
  • Tomato sauce

Another cause of tooth discoloration is your natural aging process. Over time, your teeth’s enamel wears down, revealing the dentin, which is the yellowish layer underneath.


How does teeth whitening work?

In-office teeth whitening is a quick, safe procedure. It takes less than an hour and involves no downtime so you can even make an appointment for a quick touch up to your smile during your lunch break.

During your in-office teeth whitening treatment, a Genesis Dental team member prepares a tray lined with a powerful hydrogen peroxide-based whitening gel. The whitening solution goes to work on your teeth quickly as you bite into the tray. It breaks up the concentration of teeth stains, making your teeth appear whiter.

After your whitening, you might feel some slight tooth sensitivity. This should subside shortly, typically within a few hours of the procedure.

If you’d prefer to whiten your teeth at home around your own schedule, Genesis Dental can provide you with a take-home whitening kit. In just a few short weeks, you can achieve similar results to an in-office whitening.


How long do teeth whitening results last?

Teeth whitening results should last for at least one to two years, if not longer. The key to maintaining your whitening results is continuing to brush and floss diligently and maintaining your regularly scheduled teeth cleanings. Also, you can try to limit your intake of stain-causing foods and drinks.
