What Is Professional Teeth Whitening?

Professional teeth whitening stands as a trusted, safe cosmetic procedure designed to gently bleach teeth, revitalizing them to their natural, healthy hue. Unlike uncertain over-the-counter remedies that often yield inconsistent outcomes and may trigger teeth sensitivity, our Loveland dental practice offers a cutting-edge whitening technique exclusive to our clinic.

Embracing professional teeth whitening brings forth a host of benefits, including:

  • Swift and Efficient Results: Experience noticeable improvements in the brightness of your smile in a relatively short period, enhancing your appearance promptly.
  • Lasting Radiance: Enjoy a long-lasting bright smile, as professional whitening treatments are designed to maintain their effects for an extended period, reducing the frequency of touch-up sessions.
  • Confidence Boost: Reclaim your confidence with a radiant smile. Whiter teeth can significantly enhance your self-esteem, making you feel more comfortable and assured in social and professional settings.
  • Safe and Comfortable Experience: Under the guidance of a dental professional, teeth whitening is performed using safe and proven techniques, ensuring minimal discomfort and the risk of complications during and after the procedure.
  • Suitable for Sensitive Teeth: Unlike some over-the-counter whitening products that may exacerbate tooth sensitivity, professional teeth whitening treatments can be tailored to accommodate sensitive teeth, providing a comfortable and effective solution for all individuals.

Causes of Discolored Teeth

Discoloration of teeth can occur due to various factors, including:

  • Food and Beverages: Consumption of highly pigmented foods and beverages such as coffee, tea, red wine, and certain fruits like berries can stain the enamel of the teeth over time.
  • Tobacco Use: Smoking or using tobacco products can lead to stubborn stains on the teeth, contributing to discoloration.
  • Poor Oral Hygiene: Inadequate brushing and flossing can allow plaque and tartar buildup, which can cause yellowing of the teeth.
  • Aging: As we age, the outer layer of enamel on our teeth naturally wears down, revealing the yellowish dentin underneath, leading to the appearance of discolored teeth.
  • Medications: Certain medications, such as antibiotics like tetracycline, antihistamines, and antipsychotic drugs, can cause intrinsic discoloration of the teeth.
  • Dental Trauma: Trauma to the teeth, such as a blow to the mouth, can damage the enamel and result in discoloration.
  • Genetics: Some individuals may have a genetic predisposition to tooth discoloration, making them more prone to yellow or grayish teeth regardless of their oral hygiene habits.

Consultation and Assessment

During your initial consultation with Dr. Kreimer, he will thoroughly assess your oral health, including an evaluation of your teeth and gums, to determine your eligibility for teeth whitening. Dr. Kreimer will address any underlying oral health issues and make sure your gums and teeth are in optimal condition to lower the risk of complications during the whitening treatment. Once he deems you qualified, Dr. Kreimer will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your smile goals.

Pre-Treatment Preparation

Before the whitening procedure begins, your dentist will clean your teeth to remove any plaque, tartar, and surface stains. This step ensures better results and helps prevent uneven whitening.

Custom Tray Creation

We’ll start by taking impressions of your teeth to craft custom whitening trays that perfectly fit your mouth. These trays play a crucial role in directing the whitening agent precisely to the areas needing brightening while minimizing contact with your gums, reducing the risk of irritation. 

We’ll fit your custom trays in your mouth and ensure they feel comfortable before proceeding. Additionally, we’ll record the current shade of your teeth to track your progress throughout the whitening process.

Application of Whitening Agent

Once your custom-fitted trays are ready, we’ll guide you through the process of applying the whitening agent and inserting the trays into your mouth. You’ll take these trays and the whitening gel home with you, giving you the flexibility to apply the treatment at your convenience. The barely visible trays won’t interfere with your daily activities, allowing you to wear them any time of the day.

  • At-Home Treatment: You’ll receive detailed instructions on how to apply the whitening gel to the custom trays and how long to wear them each day. This method allows for a gradual, but effective, whitening process tailored to your schedule.
  • In-Office Treatment: Alternatively, if you opt for an in-office treatment, a higher concentration of whitening gel will be applied to your teeth. This may be activated by a special light or laser to accelerate the whitening process.

Monitoring and Adjustments

Throughout the whitening process, your dentist will monitor your progress and may make adjustments as needed to ensure optimal results. They will also check for any signs of gum irritation or sensitivity and provide appropriate recommendations.

Post-Treatment Care

After completing the whitening treatment, your dentist may provide post-treatment instructions to maintain your newly whitened smile. This may include avoiding certain foods and beverages that can stain teeth, practicing good oral hygiene, and scheduling regular dental check-ups.

Follow-Up Visits (Optional)

Some dental practices offer follow-up visits to assess the longevity of the whitening results and provide touch-up treatments if necessary. These visits can help prolong the effects of the whitening treatment and keep your smile bright and radiant.

Aftercare and Maintenance

Maintaining your newly whitened smile requires proper aftercare and maintenance. Here are some essential tips to help you preserve the brightness of your teeth:

  • Practice Good Oral Hygiene: Continue brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing daily to remove plaque and prevent stains from building up on the enamel.
  • Limit Staining Foods and Beverages: Reduce your consumption of highly pigmented foods and beverages such as coffee, tea, red wine, and berries, as they can stain your teeth over time.
  • Use a Straw: When drinking beverages that may stain your teeth, such as coffee or red wine, use a straw to minimize contact with the front surfaces of your teeth.
  • Quit Smoking: If you smoke or use tobacco products, quitting can help prevent further discoloration of your teeth and improve your oral health.
  • Schedule Regular Dental Check-ups: Visit your dentist for routine check-ups and cleanings to maintain the health and appearance of your teeth. Your dentist can also provide touch-up whitening treatments if needed.
  • Touch-Up Treatments: Depending on the whitening method used, you may need periodic touch-up treatments to maintain the brightness of your smile. Consult with your dentist to determine the appropriate schedule for touch-up treatments.

Why Should You Whiten Your Teeth at Dr. Kreimer’s Office?

Professionally whitening your teeth would probably be your preferred choice when you want to experience quick outcomes. A typical treatment takes an hour to finish, and you will often notice an improvement in your teeth’ color after just one appointment.

Frequently Asked Questions

When will I see my teeth whitening results?

You’ll see immediate teeth whitening results thanks to our advanced treatment! Most patients see results after the first treatment. It’ll typically take two to six weeks to restore your teeth to a beautiful shade of white. However, this timeline depends on the individual patient. The time it’ll take depends on the original color of your teeth, how discolored they were, and how frequently the treatment is applied.

How long will the results last?

The effects typically last several years. Many patients choose to “touch up” their teeth’s color every six to 12 months by applying the treatment once or twice. “Touch-ups” are especially useful for patients who drink beverages that stain teeth, like coffee, tea, and sodas.

Are there any side effects from professional teeth whitening?

Some patients may experience heightened tooth sensitivity to the cold or mild tooth or gum sensitivity during treatment. The good news is these symptoms are only temporary and will disappear within a few days. If you continue to experience the symptoms, stop using the treatment and call your cosmetic dentist’s office to schedule an appointment.

What does whitening gel consist of?

The whitening gel, typically containing hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, is applied to the teeth. This gel is specially formulated to break down stains and discoloration, revealing a brighter smile.
