Teeth Whitening Q&A

How does teeth whitening work?

Teeth whitening treatments provided in a professional dental setting are a safe and effective way to brighten your smile. This treatment is also known to be the most economical cosmetic dental procedure, as well as the fastest way to enhance your smile. 

Teeth whitening works by applying clinical-grade bleaching agents to your tooth. The bleaching solution is either painted on by your dentist or applied into a tray that you wear at home.

As the whitening agents penetrate through the enamel of your teeth and reach the underlying dentin section, stains lift and whiten from the deepest layers. Dr. Pavlov can personalize your whitening treatment to your desired outcome — your ideal shade of whiteness — so your results look natural. 

Which type of teeth whitening do I need?

Arden Dental Services offers both in-office and take-home professional teeth whitening treatments. The type of teeth whitening service that’s right for you depends on your smile goals, tooth concerns, and budget. Below are short descriptions of each type of service. 

In-office teeth whitening

Dr. Pavlov protects your gums and root surfaces and uses a retractor to hold your lips and cheeks away from your teeth. After applying the hydrogen peroxide gel tooth-by-tooth, you lie back and relax.

He compares your teeth to a whitening shade guide after about 15 minutes. If you want to go whiter, he can apply another layer of bleaching gel. The entire whitening session — which can take up to an hour — whitens your teeth by three to eight shades. 

At-home whitening

As an alternative to an in-office teeth whitening treatment, you can brighten your smile from the comfort of your own home. 

Treatments involve wearing trays filled with clinical-grade bleaching agents for a set period designated by your dentist (usually about 30 minutes). You use the trays daily for about 7-10 days or until you reach your desired shade of white. 

Are teeth whitening treatments permanent?

No, however, with preventive care and a few lifestyle changes, Dr. Pavlov at Arden Dental Services can counsel you about, your teeth whitening treatment can last for years. Your dentist teaches you which foods and drinks to avoid — yes, coffee and tea lead to tooth stains — and which products you can use to remove surface stains between professional treatments. 

You can achieve a brighter, whiter, more confident smile with teeth whitening services from Arden Dental Services. Book your whitening appointment online or by phone with either office today.
