Benefits of Teeth Whitening

There are many over-the-counter products that are designed to be used at home without the need for supervision by your West Covina dentist. However, these over-the-counter products cannot provide the same level of whitening strength as the professional-grade treatments provided at The West Covina Dentist. Additionally, the products available in stores take a longer time to garner noticeable whitening.

At our West Covina, CA dental office, our teeth bleaching products have concentrations of hydrogen peroxide ranging from 25% to 40%. Teeth bleaching products sold in stores typically have concentrations of 3.5% or less. Before the bleaching product is applied by Dr. Howard or a member of our trained dental staff, a protective gel is applied to the gums. Whitening procedures in our office often only take one hour and only need to be repeated if the desired level of whitening is not achieved.

Professional Whitening Methods

Professional whitening makes use of high-concentration bleaching gels that are not available over the counter.

In-Office Whitening

This technique offers the fastest results with the most powerful whitening solutions available. First, your gums and tooth-root surfaces will be covered with a protective barrier to ensure your safety. A thin plastic device known as a retractor will hold your lips and cheeks away from your teeth as a professional-strength hydrogen peroxide gel is applied. The gel will be left on for about an hour. When it is removed, the results will be obvious immediately.

Take-Home Whitening

This is another effective way to whiten your teeth, though you will play a greater role in ensuring the best possible results and several weeks may be needed to achieve your desired level of whiteness. First, a mold of your teeth will be taken and then two thin, flexible plastic mouth trays will be custom-made for you — one for the top teeth and one for the bottom. You will fill the trays with whitening gel and then position the trays over your teeth. The trays are left in usually for about an hour at a time.

Caring for Your Whitened Smile

There are lots of things you can do to make sure your whitening results last as long as possible, and this will vary from person to person (six months to two years or even longer). First of all, please maintain your usual, conscientious routine of brushing and flossing every day, and keep up with your regular schedule of professional cleanings at the dental office. Avoid foods and beverages that stain, including red wine, tea and coffee. If you smoke, use your newly whitened teeth as an impetus to quit — a good idea in any event! A minor touch-up every so often, either at home or at the dental office, can keep your smile bright and beautiful for years.

Additional Information

Teeth whiten as a result of a chemical reaction that penetrates the enamel of the teeth to remove stains below the surface. Either Hydrogen peroxide or Carbamide peroxide will be used to brighten any stains present in the dentin, the layer of tooth below the enamel.

FAQ:

Am I a candidate for professional teeth whitening?

Almost anyone is a candidate for teeth whitening. However, if you have crowns or bonding on your teeth it might be difficult to match the shade and may need to be replaced.

How long will the results last?

The results of professional teeth whitening can last 2-5 years but gradually your teeth may become stained as a result of diet etc.

How long will the appointment take?

The appointment will take approximately an hour and a half but you’re invited to sit back and relax while we brighten your smile
