How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Years of exposure to highly pigmented foods and beverages, such as coffee, tea, and red wine, can leave your teeth looking not so white and bright, as can smoking and the use of tobacco products. Other factors that can lead to stubborn staining include trauma, using certain medications, and excessive exposure to fluoride during childhood.

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure that involves applying a bleaching agent directly to your tooth surfaces. The whitening gel’s active ingredient, typically hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, breaks down, releasing oxygen. The oxygen molecules penetrate the tooth enamel and react with the stain molecules, lifting them without harming your tooth structure. The result? Whiter teeth and a brighter smile.

Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening Options

Numerous over-the-counter tooth-whitening products are available, including peroxide-based trays, whitening strips, gels, and do-it-yourself kits. There are also whitening toothpaste and powders containing mild abrasives that remove some surface stains.

While many over-the-counter teeth whitening products promise Hollywood-worthy results, none are as powerful and effective as professional whitening treatments under a dentist’s supervision. In addition, some over-the-counter teeth whitening products contain harsh chemicals that can damage your gums and cause severe tooth sensitivity. For the best, safest, and most predictable results, consider professional teeth whitening offered by your trusted team at Illinois Family Dentistry.

Professional At-Home Teeth Whitening

Illinois Family Dentistry is pleased to offer at-home professional whitening treatments tailored to your unique needs. Our kits come with custom trays made from impressions of your teeth and professional-grade bleaching gel. Simply place the whitening solution into your trays and wear them as per the enclosed instructions. Once you reach the desired whitening results, you’ll need occasional touch-up treatments to maintain your beautifully white and bright smile.

Am I a Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Not all stains respond to whitening treatments in the same manner. Yellowish teeth from pigmented foods or tobacco use usually show excellent treatment results. Gray or brown stains, such as those resulting from trauma or the use of medications, may not respond well to treatment. Moreover, discolored restorations, such as tooth-colored fillings or dentures, do not respond to traditional teeth whitening treatments.

Our experienced dentists at Illinois Family Dentistry will evaluate your needs and help you determine the best cosmetic dentistry solution to restore your smile’s sparkle. If whitening is not ideal for you, we may recommend other options, such as porcelain veneers or cosmetic bonding.
