Teeth Whitening Q & A

Why Do People Have Their Teeth Whitened?

Teeth whitening is the most frequently requested cosmetic dental procedure. A bright white smile is a sign of health and youth, but many of the foods we consume, aging, and other habits cause the teeth to become stained. Some of the causes of stained and yellowed teeth include:

  • Genetics
  • Age
  • Changes in your enamel
  • Antibiotics and other medications
  • Tooth decay
  • Root canal issues
  • Internal tooth discoloration, caused by exposure to high levels of tetracycline and fluoride
  • External tooth discoloration caused by factors such as certain foods, coffee, tea, and tobacco

How Are Your Take Home Kits Different From What I Can Buy in a Drugstore?

The at-home bleaching kits provided by the dentists at Sunrise Dental of Everett are custom-made for each patient. The trays are form-fitted to each person's mouth and tooth shape to ensure the whitening agent reaches all the surfaces of the teeth for results that are more consistent and more effective. The at-home bleaching kits are designed for use under professional supervision, with special whitening agents that are more effective than those available in over-the-counter whitening kits. And finally, before your whitening treatment, the team will examine your teeth for any signs of damage that would need to be corrected prior to whitening to ensure the best possible results.

What Happens During the In-Office Teeth Whitening Procedure?

Before booking the appointment for your teeth whitening, the Sunrise Dental of Everett team will thoroughly clean and prepare the teeth and perform an examination. Any traces of decay or damage will be treated before the whitening begins. Once the patient’s teeth are ready, the team applies an innovative chemically activated gel made from hydrogen peroxide to the teeth. The patient’s lips will be held back with a soft retainer to ensure that each tooth is evenly covered with the gel. After about 40 minutes, the gel is wiped away and the lip retainer is taken out. Patients will notice a brighter and whiter smile immediately.
