Bleaching Q & A

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening at DPI Dental can restore discolored teeth to the bright white color you desire after a single in-office visit. Over time, teeth can stain because of:

  • Smoking
  • Certain medications
  • Poor oral hygiene 
  • Aging
  • Coffee, tea, or soda
  • Red wine
  • Tomato sauce
  • Popsicles
  • Berries
  • Soy sauce

Dr. Ilan uses special whitening gel to break up stain particles and eliminate them, so you can smile confidently. Professional teeth whitening at DPI Dental is safe and effective. Whitening results can last up to five years, boost your self-confidence, and enhance your smile’s appearance.

Is teeth whitening right for me?

To find out if you’re a good candidate for teeth whitening, Dr. Ilan reviews your oral health history and examines your teeth and gums. He might also recommend dental X-rays to detect or rule out underlying oral health problems. For example, if you have gum disease or tooth decay, he can treat these oral health problems prior to teeth whitening.

What are the different types of teeth whitening?

Depending on your lifestyle and preferences, Dr. Ilan offers the following teeth-whitening services:

In-office teeth whitening

During in-office teeth whitening, you relax in a comfortable dental chair. Dr. Ilan places teeth whitening trays, lined with whitening gel, on your teeth. He might use a special LED light to accelerate whitening and enhance your results. Dr. Ilan rinses off the gel, and you leave the dental office with teeth that are multiple shades whiter.

At-home whitening 

Dr. Ilan also offers professional-strength, at-home whitening gel that’s more effective than over-the-counter products. You can safely and effectively whiten your teeth from the comfort of home, but you might require multiple treatments to achieve the same results as in-office whitening.

How can I keep my teeth white?

To keep your teeth as white as possible, brush them after meals with fluoride toothpaste and floss every day. Limit or avoid foods and drinks that stain, and attend routine dental cleanings every six months at DPI Dental. Use whitening mouthwash if Dr. Ilan recommends it, and schedule periodic teeth-whitening treatments to achieve long-lasting results.
