Teeth Whitening Q&A

How does teeth whitening work?

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular procedures in cosmetic dentistry due to its ability to dramatically enhance the brightness of your smile in as little as one appointment. In addition to improving your smile’s appearance, teeth whitening can boost your confidence and promote positive changes in how you interact with the world.

The SPA Dental Group team wants you to feel good about your smile, which is why they provide Opalescence™ in-office teeth whitening services and at-home kits to remove stains and discoloration from your teeth. 

Ranked as the #1 whitening product by Business Insider, the Opalescence formula is a thick sticky gel with strong strain eliminators that won’t get watered down by saliva. The result is a sparkling set of pearly whites you can’t wait to show off.

What causes yellow teeth?

Yellow or discolored teeth are extremely common, especially as you age. Some types of teeth discoloration are due to issues that affect dentin, the hard tissue beneath your tooth’s transparent enamel.

More often, teeth turn yellow or become stained due to certain foods and beverages, such as red wine, coffee, and tea, and chewing or smoking tobacco. Other factors that can cause yellow teeth include genetics, aging, and poor dental hygiene.

What are the benefits of professional teeth whitening?

You may have seen various teeth whitening kits in stores. While these options may seem tempting, getting your teeth professionally whitened at SPA Dental Group offers several advantages, such as:

  • Stronger and more effective results that last longer than store-bought kits
  • Overseen by a medical professional
  • Gentler for sensitive teeth
  • Faster treatment

Teeth whitening with the Opalescence whitening system is also a cost-effective way to revitalize your smile with brighter teeth in just one session.  

Who is a good candidate for teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is an easy way to give your smile a makeover without significant work. However, this treatment isn’t right for everyone. Teeth whitening may not be a good option if you have any of the following conditions:

  • Extremely sensitive teeth or gums
  • Discolored dentin due to tooth trauma or disease
  • Deep stains that resist whitening

The best way to determine if you’re a good candidate for teeth whitening is to discuss your concerns and goals with SPA Dental Group during a consultation. If teeth whitening isn’t right for you, they may suggest another treatment.
