Teeth Whitening Q & A

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening at Flatlands Dental Care uses innovative technology to break up and remove tooth stains, offering the brighter, whiter smile you long for. The treatment is painless, highly effective, and long-lasting. You can choose in-office or at-home teeth whitening options.

What are the common causes of teeth staining?

Despite good oral hygiene habits at home, tooth staining often still occurs due to aging, lifestyle habits, and some foods and drinks. Common causes of tooth staining are:

  • Red wine
  • Soda
  • Coffee
  • Dark juices
  • Tea
  • Smoking
  • Some medicines
  • Certain medical conditions
  • Older age
  • Popsicles
  • Tomato sauce 
  • Soy sauce
  • Poor oral hygiene habits

While there are many over-the-counter teeth whitening products to choose from, professional-strength whitening treatments are stronger and often produce superior results after fewer treatment sessions.

Is teeth whitening right for me?

Everyone benefits from teeth whitening at Flatlands Dental Care, and you get to choose the shade of white you desire. If you have tooth decay or gum disease, your dental specialist offers treatments for these conditions to perfect the function and overall look of your smile.

They take dental X-rays if needed, look at your teeth and gums, and review your oral health history and desired results before tailoring a treatment plan.

What should I expect during teeth whitening?

During teeth whitening at Flatlands Dental Care, you relax comfortably in a dental chair. Your provider uses a whitening gel and an LED light to brighten your teeth quickly, and there’s no pain or downtime afterward.

You might prefer to whiten your teeth from the comfort of your home using customized teeth trays and a professional-strength, at-home whitening system.

What is the best way to keep my teeth white?

The best way to keep your smile bright is to limit drinks and foods that stain, brush your teeth after meals using a whitening toothpaste, and see your dentist every six months for dental cleanings and exams. Periodically whiten your teeth with the help of experts at Flatlands Dental Care because, despite your best efforts, teeth staining often still occurs over time.
