Teeth Whitening

One of the most common desires patients have is whiter teeth. When considering your options, it is important to consult your dentist to make sure you have all the facts and understand how they may affect your teeth and mouth.

Many people think the coloring of teeth is due to plaque or dirt. But a variety of factors can affect the color of your teeth including food, drink, tobacco, age, injury, and medications. Understanding what is causing the discoloration is important to properly whiten your teeth.

Teeth whitening products use bleaches (either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide) to break stains into smaller pieces, which make them harder to see and make your teeth brighter. These bleaches do not work on all teeth, so it is important to consult your dentist before any treatment. Whitening will not be effective on caps, veneers, crowns, fillings or if the color is caused by medications or injury.

Options for teeth whitening usually include whitening toothpastes, at-home bleaching, and in-office bleaching. Of course effectiveness, safety, and results vary greatly between products, so consult with your dentist if you are considering these choices.

If the bleach in a whitening product gets through the enamel of your teeth, it can irritate the nerves and cause tooth sensitivity. This sensitivity is usually temporary, but overuse of whiteners can cause lasting damage. If you are experiencing prolonged side effects from teeth whitening, contact us right away.

Our Happy Customers

"I can not thank the staff at Dental Arts Associates enough for their immediate help last night and again today. Dr Zak Rosen is funny, down to earth and just awesome. I will be switching to them for all my work, even through they are out of network. The office was immaculate, have new equipment and they are all just great. Thanks again Dr Zak!"

Rachel

"I was in the market for a new dentist (actually I really liked my old dentist, but the organization had too many flaws so I left) and Dental Arts was recommended to me. I'm so glad I took the recommendation. Dental Arts does a lot of the little things that make the experience as best as it can be. I always get greeted and seen quickly upon my arrival. The work that Dr. Zach has done on me has been efficient and done really well, and he's always sharing the things I need to know and will answer any questions. If I had anything to gripe about it would be that sometimes the front desk will ask questions or explain things in very technical terms, which can be confusing. Many of us aren't in the field so we need things explain in more laymen's terms. This is simply something I noticed, but I will continue to be a patient here for the long run. Highly recommended!"

Alex

"I had a very good experience today. I am very afraid when it comes to dentist and pain. I felt do pain whatsoever. I would recommend Dental Arts to anyone. Most of my family comes here also. All I can say is Great Job!!!"
