What Is Professional Teeth Whitening?

Sometimes brushing your teeth and flossing daily isn’t enough to prevent discoloration. Over time, you may notice your smile has lost its shine or has become more yellow than it used to be. That’s why our professional teeth whitening is designed to instantly brighten your smile in just one appointment with Dr. Gabriel. Our whitening products break down stains resulting in a renewed, confident smile.

If you suffer from discolored teeth or have noticed changes in your smile, professional whitening could be right for you. Our Wexford office works with you to decide the best treatment to remedy any dental issues you are experiencing.

Causes of Stained Teeth

Several factors can contribute to the staining, yellowing, or discoloration of your teeth:

  • Poor Oral Hygiene
  • Tobacco
  • Certain Foods & Drinks
  • Aging
  • Genetics

LED-Assisted Whitening Technology

Our Wexford office provides LED-assisted technology to whiten your teeth and effectively remove any damage your smile may have. While many patients believe that store-bought strips are the most cost-effective whitening solution, this isn’t the case. Over-the-counter solutions take longer and won’t remove tough, year-old stains that are beneath the teeth’ surface.

Professional Whitening Process

Treatment Preparation

Dr. Gabriel will first apply our gentle whitening gel onto your teeth. This product is designed for sensitive teeth and will dissolve any stains you may have, brightening your teeth by several shades in a short amount of time.

Whitening Your Smile

We’ll activate the gel by using our state-of-the-art LED mouthguard, allowing the whitening solution to penetrate deeper into your teeth and remove deep discoloration. LED-assisted technology is the leading whitening method recommended by dentists everywhere for its effectiveness and sensitivity. We’re proud to provide our patients with this proven service here at our Wexford office.

For patients who have a busier schedule, Dr. Gabriel can provide them with take-home whitening treatment kits so they can achieve similar results with their teeth.

Whitening Candidacy

There are some factors to consider before undergoing teeth whitening procedures, such as:

  • Overall Oral Health: Candidates should have good oral health, free from gum disease, tooth decay, or other oral conditions that require immediate attention. Any existing dental issues should be addressed before undergoing teeth whitening.
  • Stains and Discoloration:  Whitening is most effective for extrinsic stains caused by external factors like food, beverages, and tobacco use. Candidates with yellowish teeth or mild to moderate extrinsic stains generally achieve better results.
  • Age: Whitening is generally recommended for individuals aged 16 and older. Younger candidates may have more sensitive teeth, and their enamel may still be developing.
  • Tooth Sensitivity: Candidates should have minimal tooth sensitivity or be able to tolerate temporary tooth sensitivity, as whitening procedures can cause temporary sensitivity in some cases.
  • Restorations: Whitening treatments primarily affect natural teeth. Candidates without extensive dental restorations such as fillings, crowns, or veneers typically see the best results. Existing restorations may need to be replaced to match the new shade of the whitened teeth.
  • Commitment to Oral Hygiene: Candidates should be committed to maintaining good oral hygiene practices, including regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups. Good oral hygiene helps to preserve the results of teeth whitening.
  • Realistic Expectations: Candidates should have realistic expectations regarding the outcome of whitening. While teeth can generally be lightened by several shades, it is important to understand that individual results may vary.
  • Lifestyle Factors: Candidates should be willing to make certain lifestyle adjustments to maintain the results of whitening. This includes avoiding foods and beverages that can stain teeth, such as coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco products.
