Teeth Whitening
Everett, WA

Tooth whitening, which is also referred to as bleaching, is a simple cosmetic dentistry treatment used to alter the color of your natural tooth enamel. This is arguably one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry options out there and is a great way to improve the beauty of your smile.

Since getting whiter teeth has quickly become a top aesthetic concern of dental patients, there are more ways than ever before to whiten the teeth. The most popular of the available methods is to use a take-home whitening system that can dramatically alter the shade of your teeth. However, it is important to remember that since tooth whitening will only work on your natural enamel, you’ll need to replace crowns and old fillings after bleaching so that they can match your newly whitened teeth.

Reasons to Whiten Your Teeth

There are a variety of reasons that people may choose to whiten their teeth:

•  Normal wear of the enamel that has caused discoloration
•  Stains on the teeth due to diet, smoking, or certain medications
•  Fluorosis (excessive fluoride consumption throughout tooth development)
•  Teeth that have become yellowed or brown with age

While whitening your teeth will certainly go a long way in improving the appearance of your smile, whiter teeth can also boost your self-esteem and leave you feeling better about yourself. When you are happier with your smile, you may feel more confident and outgoing, leading to a variety of social and mental health benefits.

The Tooth Whitening Procedure

The tooth whitening offered in our office typically requires two visits, as we will be fitting you for a take-home system. At your first appointment, we will take impressions of your teeth so that we can create custom, plastic trays. We will also determine the current shade of your teeth so that we’ll be able to monitor your progress as you move through the treatment plan. Your follow-up appointment will occur once your trays have been received back from the dental lab, and we will make sure that they fit properly.

You’ll be instructed to fill the trays with a special whitening solution and wear them for 30-60 minutes at a time, twice daily. You should be prepared to experience some tooth discomfort and sensitivity while you are going through the whitening process, but for most people, these symptoms go away as soon as they have completed the treatment. Even after whitening, you should still continue to visit our office regularly to help maintain your new smile.

Caring for Your Whiter Smile

It is important to note that tooth whitening isn’t a permanent treatment option, but there are ways that you can extend out the longevity of the results. Be sure to properly brush and floss to keep stains at bay, and you may want to alter your diet to avoid stain-causing foods and drinks, such as coffee, red wine, and dark berries. Smoking is also a major cause of stains to the teeth, so if you smoke, consider giving up the habit in order to maintain your beautiful smile. As always, be sure to visit us regularly, and you can get a touch-up to your whitening job every year in order to maintain your beautiful smile.
