Teeth Whitening Q & A
Why do teeth become discolored?
Your teeth become discolored with age and lifestyle habits. Coffee, red wine, and tea can stain teeth over time. Plus, as you age, the outer layer of enamel starts to thin, revealing the darker internal parts of the tooth. Trauma and using certain medications, like tetracycline, also lead to changes in the color of your teeth. Smoking can make your teeth yellow and discolored, too.
Who is a good candidate for teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening works well for people who have healthy teeth and no obvious fillings. You also need healthy gums that can withstand the whitening solution. Teeth whitening works best if your teeth look slightly yellowed. Teeth that darken due to trauma or medication don’t respond as well to teeth whitening trays or in-office application. And if you smoke, you may get less-than-ideal results from whitening procedures.
What in-office teeth whitening procedures are available?
At Vital Dental Care, the providers can whiten your teeth in her office with Venus White® Max. It’s a 38% hydrogen peroxide gel infused with potassium nitrate, which helps reduce sensitivity to the whitening agent. You get whiter, brighter teeth in just three or four 15-minute sessions. In-office whitening is quick, efficient, and effective.
What take-home whitening treatments are available?
If you prefer a less expensive, but still effective whitening option, go for Venus White® Pro take-home whitening kits. You get trays customized to fit your mouth, and you wear the trays for short periods every day for up to 14 days, or until you achieve the look you desire.
At-home whitening kits come with a carbamide peroxide whitening gel at concentrations of 16%, 22%, or 35%. The dentist recommends the grade that’s right for you. The at-home kit can make your teeth up to 8.4 shades whiter than your current smile.*
Venus also makes an at-home kit that can give you visibly whiter teeth in just three days. You receive seven upper and seven lower disposable trays pre-filled with 11.2% hydrogen peroxide gel.
