Teeth Whitening

by Alen Gharibian, DDS

Why do my teeth look so yellow and dull?

Teeth are exposed to lots of substances all day long, including foods and beverages that stain and acidic foods that can soften enamel, making it more susceptible to staining and yellowing. Drinking coffee, tea, red wine and energy drinks can all cause significant staining over time, as can smoking or chewing tobacco.

How does professional teeth whitening work?

Professional whitening uses safe but strong whitening agents designed to whiten not just the very surface of your teeth like strips and pastes, but also the deeper layers of dentin located just below the enamel surface for whiter, brighter results that are far superior to the results achieved with over-the-counter products. Plus, professional whitening can be customized to your preferences so your results look completely natural.

Will teeth whitening cause my teeth to become sensitive?

Some patients may experience sensitivity during their whitening treatment, but once the treatment is complete, those issues will quickly resolve. Having your teeth whitened professionally also means you can have your teeth cleaned and examined ahead of time so any cracks or undetected decay can be treated prior to whitening to decrease the likelihood of sensitivity issues.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Yes, the professional teeth whitening products used at the Dental Center of Redondo Beach have been developed for maximum patient safety, so you can feel confident in your treatment and in your results.

Are teeth whitening treatments covered by dental insurance plans?

No, teeth whitening is considered a cosmetic treatment, and it is not covered by dental insurance.

How long will my results last?

That depends on how well you care for your teeth afterward and whether you avoid foods that cause staining. Professional whitening results can last much longer than results attained with over-the-counter products, and you can have touch-up treatments to maintain results indefinitely.
