Teeth Whitening FAQ
How long does the procedure take?
It takes typically takes around 45 minutes to complete. We will educate you about the teeth whitening process before starting the treatment. This information session might take 15 minutes or so. The entire appointment will likely last about an hour.
When will I see the results?
Your teeth will be several shades whiter immediately after the treatment.
How much whiter will my teeth be?
Whitening gets your teeth several shades lighter, typically between 2-4 shades. You may have read elsewhere that getting teeth whiter by as much as eight shades is possible. Be careful. Keep to the conservative estimate for your benefit, and you won’t be disappointed. However, the degree of whiteness hinges on the hue your desire and the level of staining on your teeth. Even the mineral content of your teeth plays a role in determining the whitest possible shade.
Does teeth whitening hurt?
At Tristate Dental Spa, we use a state-of-the-art whitening system that allows us to brighten your teeth with minimal to no discomfort due to a unique anti-sensitivity component of the whitening gel. As a result, you receive the highest quality teeth whitening treatment available today, anywhere.
Could my teeth get damaged?
Not in our office. Our teeth whitening methods do not cause short-term or long-term damage to tooth enamel or dentin. We help protect your gums during the procedure in our office.
How long will my teeth stay white?
In most cases, the whitening lasts for an entire year. However, teeth whitening results depend on your unique lifestyle, food consumption, and commitment to oral care.
I have a life event approaching shortly. When should I whiten my teeth for the best results?
The best approach is to whiten your teeth three weeks before the event. If you want to whiten your teeth sooner, you might need a follow-up treatment the week before the event. Such a follow-up treatment will take a mere 20 minutes or so. The little bit of time it takes is well worth the effort.
Is scaling and polishing necessary before the procedure?
While we will eliminate stains and plaque during the whitening process, teeth whitening is not a substitute for scaling and polishing. If there is visible tartar on the exterior of teeth, scaling and polishing will be necessary before teeth whitening.
Is it possible to whiten a dead tooth?
Dead teeth rarely benefit from teeth whitening because dead teeth behave differently than living teeth.
Can teeth whitening gel be used on my sensitive teeth?
The tolerance for teeth whitening gel differs from individual to individual. Certain patients have reversible tooth sensitivity. Some patients have gum irritation after the use of whitening gel. However, reducing the bleaching sessions and increasing the time between sessions will minimize sensitivity and irritation.
