Teeth Whitening Q & A

Why do teeth turn yellow?

A variety of factors lead to your teeth turning yellow. Certain medications, the stuff you drink and eat, and your age can all play a role. Surface stains on the enamel of your teeth from drinks like tea, coffee, and red wine, can make your teeth appear yellowish. Smoking and tobacco are also big culprits.

Eventually, these surface stains can become even harder to remove because they go beneath the enamel to the dentin of your tooth.

Is it safe to whiten your teeth?

Absolutely. As long as you obey product instructions and guidelines, teeth whitening is an entirely safe process. For reliable, safe results, the team at Murrieta Family Dental Group provides highly effective whitening treatments containing powerful bleaching agents. You can decide to have your teeth whitened in one office appointment or gradually over time with a take-home whitening kit.

In either instance, the whitening solution is not harmful to put in your mouth and on your teeth. You may experience minor, temporary gum and tooth sensitivity as a result of the bleaching agents.

What can you expect from the teeth whitening procedure?

A simple in-office teeth-whitening procedure can make your teeth up to eight shades brighter after just one appointment.* At your appointment, an experienced dental specialist will fit upper and lower dental trays into your mouth. The trays hold the bleaching solution.

Next, your practitioner covers your gums and lips to protect them from the solution. They put the bleaching solution in the trays and shine a special bright light on your teeth. You sit back and relax as the bleach and light combine to whiten your teeth during three 15-minute treatments, all happening in a single visit.

Between these 15-minute treatments, you wait comfortably, and following the final bleaching treatment, your dental expert covers your teeth in a post-treatment gel to reduce any sensitivity you might have after the whitening. Then you're done. Your teeth are whiter in about two hours, and your smile shows it.

Murrieta Family Dental Group also offers at-home teeth-whitening kits that whiten teeth over a couple weeks.
