Teeth Whitening Q & A
What are the causes of yellow teeth?
Your teeth can turn yellow for a variety of reasons. The foods you eat and drink, certain medications, and age might all be contributing factors. Surface stains on the enamel of your teeth from drinks like tea, coffee, and red wine can make your teeth appear yellowish. Big contributors include tobacco and smoking, too.
Eventually, the surface stains can get even more challenging to get rid of because they soak deep into the enamel of your tooth to the dentin.
Is it safe to whiten your teeth at home?
Yes. When you follow product specifications and instructions, whitening your teeth is a harmless process. The professionals at Buckhead Dental Care offer professional take-home whitening treatments for safe, reliable results.
When compared to other over-the-counter (OTC) whitening solutions, the take-home whitening kits that Dr. Mandalia provides far more dramatic results.
This professional whitening solution is not dangerous to put in your mouth. However, the gradually working bleaching agents may cause some temporary gum and tooth sensitivity.
What's involved in the take-home whitening process?
Dr. Mandalia’s take-home whitening kits are an effective way to brighten your smile, without the cost or discomfort of in-office whitening treatments. Your take-home kit will include custom fit bleaching trays that will be made from impressions taken of your teeth in the Buckhead Dental Care office.
Because these take-home bleaching trays work gradually and do not provide the instant results of an in-office visit, they should not irritate your gums or the tissues in your mouth. Any discomfort you feel is temporary and mild compared to a more intense in-office whitening procedure.
When you arrive at the office, you will be given detailed instructions on how to use your personalized whitening kit, including when and for how long to wear the trays each day to achieve the desired result.
For the best results, it’s important to make sure you’re wearing your bleaching trays consistently and to minimize your consumption of staining products like red wine, coffee, and tobacco.
