Teeth Whitening Q & A

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a simple cosmetic dentistry treatment that can enhance the beauty of your smile and boost your self-confidence. Dr. Abajian and the team at Esthetic Smiles offer safe and effective teeth whitening to make your teeth noticeably whiter in as little as one treatment.

At Esthetic Smiles, you can whiten your teeth in the dentist’s chair or in the comfort of your own home. Both treatments use a powerful yet safe, whitening gel. When applied to the surface of your teeth, the gel lightens stains, yellowing, and discoloration on your tooth enamel.

Who is a good candidate for teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening may be right for you if you’ve ever found yourself wishing for a whiter, brighter smile. Your smile is one of the first things that people notice upon seeing you. Teeth whitening helps you get a smile you’ll want to show off proudly.

Dr. Abajian and the team at Esthetic Smiles use teeth whitening to reduce tooth discoloration from a number of causes, including:

  • Natural aging
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Certain medications and medical conditions
  • Smoking and chewing tobacco
  • Drinking tea, wine, coffee, and soda
  • Overexposure to fluoride (fluorosis)

The best way to find out if you’re a good candidate for teeth whitening is to schedule a consultation at Esthetic Smiles. Dr. Abajian evaluates your teeth and recommends the best approach to whitening them. 

What are the benefits of professional teeth whitening?

You may have seen at-home teeth whitening kits at the pharmacy or grocery store and wondered why you should seek professional treatment. There are many advantages of professional teeth whitening, including:

  • Faster results
  • Safer and more effective formula
  • Customized to your needs

Additionally, when you get in-office teeth whitening at Esthetic Smiles, Dr. Abajian oversees the procedure and makes sure your teeth remain safe. Without professional supervision, at-home teeth whitening can potentially damage sensitive teeth and gums.

How long do the effects of teeth whitening last?

How long your teeth stay white and bright depends on a variety of factors, including how stained and discolored they were, to begin with, and how you care for them. After your treatment, Dr. Abajian may advise you to avoid eating and drinking foods that can stain your teeth, like red wine.
