Teeth Whitening Q & A

Why are My Teeth Stained?

The food and drink you consume are the primary factors that contribute to stained, yellow teeth. Coffee, tea, and wine are the most common offenders when it comes to tooth discoloration. Smoking, certain medications, and tooth trauma also cause staining.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Teeth-whitening treatments work by applying a bleaching chemical such as hydrogen peroxide to your teeth. The solution penetrates the enamel of your teeth and breaks your stains to reveal a fresh, white smile.

Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness offer both in-office and at-home teeth-whitening treatments. The in-office whitening treatment can lighten your smile by several shades in one treatment that takes approximately an hour. You can also choose to whiten your teeth over a couple of weeks with at-home treatments, which use custom dental trays and a gentle but effective bleaching gel.

What are the Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening?

Professional teeth whitening treatments are safer and more effective than an over-the-counter teeth-whitening treatment you can pick up at the drugstore.

Teeth-whitening toothpaste can help reduce your risk of staining, but it doesn’t do much to lift existing stains. The at-home teeth-whitening kits you can buy at your drugstore can brighten your smile, but the small amounts of active ingredients mean that you need to leave the bleach on your teeth for longer amounts of time, increasing your risk of tooth sensitivity.

However, when you have a professional teeth-whitening treatment, your provider supervises your procedure. They use stronger products to lift stains more quickly and reduce any risk of sensitivity or enamel damage. Even if you opt for professional at-home treatment, you use customized trays to ensure even coverage and wear them for a limited amount of time.

In addition, after you’ve brightened your smile, you may be more aware of what you’re eating and drinking, which can support your weight loss efforts by encouraging healthy choices and frequent teeth brushing — nothing tastes good after you brush your teeth.
