Teeth Whitening Q & A

How are teeth whitening treatments performed?

At Burlington Center Dental Associates, the highly trained team can help eliminate unwanted stains and tooth discoloration. Getting your teeth whitened by professionals offers results that are effective and appear natural.

During the teeth whitening treatment, a hydrogen-peroxide based gel will be applied to your teeth. A protective barrier is placed over your gums to protect them during your treatment. The gel is then left on your teeth while it removes the stains and discoloration. Heat and light may be used to speed up or optimize your results.

Teeth whitening procedures normally produce immediate results. However, to achieve your desired aesthetic, a few teeth whitening sessions may be necessary.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Your oral health and comfort are top priorities at Burlington Center Dental Associates. Therefore, the team takes great care to ensure that all teeth whitening treatments are performed safely and effectively.

The peroxide-based whitening gel is designed to not damage your teeth and keep your tooth enamel intact. Some patients do report mild sensitivity during teeth whitening treatments. However, this feeling does not last long and only causes minor discomfort.

Teeth whitening is considered a safe and effective method of improving your smile.

How do I maintain the results of teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening treatments can last up to two years. However, many factors can play a role in how long the results of teeth whitening are noticeable.

Having a daily oral hygiene routine that includes brushing and flossing is essential to keeping your teeth looking bright. Having regular dental cleanings performed by oral health care professionals is also crucial to maintaining the results of teeth whitening treatments.

To preserve your whitening results, certain foods that stain your teeth should also be avoided. Some of these foods include red wine, coffee, berries, and tea.
