Frequently Asked Questions
Can you go from yellow to white teeth?
Over time, a variety of things can stain your teeth and turn them yellow. Age also influences the discoloration. Luckily, it is completely possible to turn yellow teeth pearly white again. The most immediate and effective method is to see our dentists for an in-office whitening treatment.
There are also a large number of in-home whitening kits that you can use to whiten your smile, but these typically contain a lower concentration of whitening agents than the in-office whitening treatments. In-office whitening treatments cause less sensitivity which allows you to brighten your smile to your liking.
Is it bad to get your teeth whitened?
No, it’s not bad to get your teeth whitened, but there is a risk of irritation, pain, or damage if not done correctly. To lower your risk of damaging or irritating your teeth and gums, it is recommended that you visit our Basalt office before starting any teeth whitening treatment.
How long do the effects of an in-office teeth whitening treatment last?
With proper care and avoiding certain foods and beverages, the effects of in-office whitening treatment can last up to three years. This is much longer than the effects of an over-the-counter whitening treatment which tends to have results lasting up to 12 months.
How can I maintain a whiter smile?
After a whitening treatment, it’s important to take care of your smile to prevent further staining and avoid possibly damaging your teeth. Use a soft-bristled brush with lukewarm water when cleaning your teeth, and avoid hot or cold foods for at least a day.
We recommend increasing the time between treatments, lowering time spent whitening, and reducing the level of concentration used. For a lasting white smile, it’s best to avoid foods and beverages that lead to stains such as coffee, tea, wine, beets, soy sauce, and berries.
