Teeth Whitening Q & A

Coxsackie Dental Arts

What are the causes of yellow teeth?

Many factors contribute to teeth yellowing. The foods you eat and drink, certain medications, and age might all be contributing factors. Surface stains on the enamel of your teeth from drinks like tea, coffee, and red wine, can make your teeth appear yellowish. Tobacco and smoking are also significant causes.

Over time, these surface stains go beneath the enamel to the dentin of your tooth, making the stain even harder to remove.

Is it safe to whiten your teeth?

Definitely. Teeth whitening is not harmful if you comply with product directions and guidelines. The team at Coxsackie Dental Arts offers professional whitening treatments for safe, effective results. You can get your teeth whitened in just one appointment or gradually with a take-home teeth whitening kit.

In either instance, the whitening solution is not harmful to put in your mouth and on your teeth. The only discomfort you may experience is temporary tooth and gum sensitivity from the bleaching agents.

What's involved in an in-office whitening procedure?

A simple in-office teeth-whitening procedure could make your teeth up to eight shades brighter after just one appointment.* At your appointment, an experienced Coxsackie Dental Arts team member will fit upper and lower dental trays into your mouth. These trays will be filled with an advanced whitening gel.

Your dental professional will cover your gums and lips to protect them from the solution. The trays are filled with the whitening gel and a unique LED lamp is positioned over your teeth. You sit back and relax as the bleach and light work together to whiten your teeth for three 15-minute treatments in a single visit.

Between treatments, you wait comfortably, and after the last bleaching treatment, your dental expert covers your teeth in a post-treatment gel to reduce any sensitivity you might have after the whitening. That’s all. Your teeth are whiter, and your smile is brighter in about two hours.

The Coxsackie Dental Arts team can also provide take-home teeth-whitening kits for a less immediate approach to whitening teeth over a couple of weeks.
