What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a simple and effective treatment to remove stains and discoloration from your teeth. That is typically done with the use of a powerful bleaching agent, like hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, to break up and lift stains from your teeth.

Most people experience discolored teeth due to aging. However, other factors can cause your teeth to change color, including:

  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Taking medication with tetracycline
  • Using tobacco
  • Drinking dark beverages like coffee, cola, or red wine
  • Eating foods that stain like berries and tomato sauces.

At JP Dental Care, the team can recommend at-home treatments to brighten your smile or provide you with teeth whitening and cleansing kits upon scheduling an appointment.

Am I a candidate for teeth whitening?

While teeth whitening is available to all patients at JP Dental Care, your provider may recommend holding off on the process if you have underlying problems with your teeth to prioritize receiving the right treatment. However, in most cases, teeth whitening is appropriate for anyone with good oral health.

If you’re considering teeth whitening, visit JP Dental Care to receive a consultation with one of the teeth whitening specialists. There, the team will help you determine if teeth whitening is the right option for you.  

What is the process for teeth whitening?

At JP Dental Care, your teeth whitening visit begins with a regular dental exam. Your provider checks for underlying problems with your teeth and makes recommendations for effective treatment, if needed.

To begin the whitening process, the team consults with you to select the desired shade for your teeth. Then they place a shield or gel to protect your gums. After that, they apply the bleaching agent over your teeth, sometimes using a specialized light to activate the bleaching agent. The entire process usually takes about an hour. 

Your provider may recommend whitening toothpaste, over-the-counter gels, or other take-home professional whitening strips and kits to help you maintain your bright smile. However, with proper oral hygiene, the effects of in-office professional teeth whitening can last several years. 

To achieve the bright smile you desire, call JP Dental Care in Fountain Valley or use the online booking tool to schedule a consultation for teeth whitening.
