There are two kinds of teeth discoloration, we will go through each one, so you will be able to understand how to take better care of your teeth after whitening.

Extrinsic discoloration mainly comes from the enamel or outside layer of your teeth. These are the types of stains that would affect the discoloration of the tooth, berries, tea, coffee, and tobacco. The best way to keep your teeth from staining extrinsically is by staying away from these types of foods or substances to keep your teeth whiter than ever.

Intrinsic discoloration mainly comes from the inside of the tooth. It can start from the inside layer of the tooth called the dentin. Things that will cause the dentin to stain would be dental trauma, certain medications, or even genetics.

Professional vs. Over-the-Counter Whitening

At Johansen Dental , we offer a customized tray that will fit perfectly to your teeth. We will supply whitening gel that you will be able to apply at home. We also have another option of in-house whitening where you will be able to whiten your teeth in our office with our whitening specialist.

There are other at-home options from the store, but those are a more generic way to whiten teeth. They would use generic trays, strips, and use peroxides to whiten the teeth. Depending on the whitening option you are looking for, we will have the best-customized option with better quality products that will help with the longevity and strength of the whitening process.

The Whitening Process

Steps that are needed to get your perfect, bright smile will depend on the whitening option that you choose. The whitening process usually takes about an hour in our office to make sure that the process goes as smoothly as possible.

Some of our procedures require a specific light and multiple applications of the whitening solution every 15-20 minutes in order to speed up the process and get better results. Before and after the appointment we will check your teeth against a color scale to see how well the teeth whitened. There is a possibility that the teeth will become 3-8 shades lighter in the first visit.

Long Term Results

For the best results, it is important to avoid foods that will stain the enamel of the teeth. These would include coffee, tea, soda, etc. It’s also important that you come in for your regular checkup and cleaning to make sure that your teeth are being cleaned regularly to avoid stains.

Common Myths about whitening

Myth: Whitening eats at the tooth enamel.
Fact: Because of our products, technique, skill, and following proper guidelines, whitening is a safe process and does not damage the enamel.

Myth:
Over-the-counter whitening is as Effective as Professional Treatments.
Fact: Some people believe that over-the-counter whitening products have the same effect as if they were to whiten at a dental office, but this isn’t true. Over-the-counter products usually have lower quality, products lowering their effectiveness. We use better-quality products making the whitening faster, and easier which creates a better whitening experience.
