Answer Key

  1. True. We can create a set of plastic trays and send them home with you (along with a bleaching gel). Each day, you will fill the trays with gel and wear them for the time the dentist recommends, usually about a half hour. Over the course of a week to ten days, stains will be removed. This offers more dramatic results than other at-home solutions, such as strips or toothpastes.
  2. True. At the office, we can use a powerful bleaching gel, activated with a curing light, to remove stains in about one to two hours. You can enjoy teeth brightened by multiple shades!
  3. True. Remember, what we eat (foods/snacks high in sugar) and drink (sugary drinks, or those with dark pigments) can make the appearance of stains more likely. Smoking has also been linked to discoloration.
  4. True. Following treatment, make a point to take better care of your smile. Proper brushing and flossing, as well as routine dental cleanings, can help your results last longer. If you have any questions about our teeth whitening treatments, then please contact our office today.
