Teeth Whitening Q&A

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening at Hendricks Dental Specialists features advanced whitening technology to make your teeth up to eight shades whiter, enhancing the look of your beautiful smile. The practice offers Zoom! and Sheer White! whitening strips to remove staining that builds up due to a variety of reasons. Each whitening treatment is simple and pain-free, yet highly effective.

What are the common causes of teeth staining?

Teeth staining might occur for numerous reasons, including:

  • Medications
  • Aging
  • Smoking
  • Poor at-home oral hygiene
  • Skipped dental cleanings
  • Certain medical conditions 
  • Cola
  • Red wine
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Tomato sauce
  • Popsicles
  • Dark juices
  • Soy sauce

Even if you limit food and drinks that stain teeth, discoloration can still occur over time. Fortunately, periodic teeth whitening can keep your smile a beautiful shade of white, regardless of the risk of staining.

Am I a candidate for teeth whitening?

Everyone can benefit from teeth whitening with the Hendricks Dental Specialists team. Your dentist meets with you to discuss your desired results. They examine your teeth and gums and take dental X-rays, if necessary. 

If you have tooth decay, gum disease, tooth damage, or other oral health concerns, your dentist first treats these conditions before you undergo teeth whitening.

You can choose the shade of white you desire, and you have options for in-office or at-home whitening solutions. 

What happens during teeth whitening treatment?

During teeth whitening, you receive professional-strength whitening strips or dental trays with whitening gel that go on your teeth. Your dentist may use a special LED light to speed up the process of the whitening gel.

After a period of time, they remove the strips or trays. You can then enjoy whiter, brighter teeth and a vibrant smile.

How should I keep my teeth white?

There are several ways you can keep your teeth and smile as white as possible. Brush your teeth after meals using a whitening toothpaste, try whitening mouthwash if your dentist recommends it, and floss daily.

Limit food and drinks that stain, avoid smoking, and see the Hendricks Dental Specialists team regularly for dental cleanings, exams, and teeth whitening whenever needed.
