Teeth Whitening Q & A

Why do teeth turn yellow?

A variety of factors lead to your teeth turning yellow. Certain medications, age, and the things you drink and eat can all contribute. The enamel on your teeth can get surface stains from drinks like red wine, tea, and coffee, and this can make your teeth appear yellow. Smoking and tobacco are also big culprits.

Eventually, these surface stains can become even harder to remove because they go beneath the enamel to the dentin of your tooth.

Are you sure teeth whitening isn't dangerous?

Definitely. As long as you obey product instructions and guidelines, teeth whitening is an entirely safe process. The team at Dental Care Olathe offers professional whitening treatments for safe, effective results. You can get your teeth whitened in just one appointment or gradually with a take-home teeth whitening kit.

In both cases, the whitening solution is completely safe to put on your teeth and in your mouth. You may, however, experience temporary tooth and gum sensitivity due to the bleaching agents.

How does the in-office procedure work?

The in-office teeth-whitening process is simple and can potentially make your teeth up to eight shades brighter in just one visit.* At your appointment, one of the experienced Dental Care Olathe team members fits upper and lower dental trays into your mouth. The trays hold the bleaching solution.

Then, your dental professional covers your lips and gums to shield them from the solution. They fill the trays with the bleaching solution and position a specialized bright light over your teeth. You sit back and relax as the bleach and light work together to whiten your teeth for three 15-minute treatments in a single visit.

You wait comfortably between treatments until your final bleaching treatment is complete, then your dental expert covers your teeth in a post-treatment gel to reduce any sensitivity you might have after the whitening. Then you're done. In about two hours, you have whiter teeth and a dazzling smile.

The Dental Care Olathe team can also provide take-home teeth-whitening kits for a less immediate approach to whitening teeth over a couple of weeks.
