Teeth Whitening Q & A

How does teeth whitening work?

The outer portion of your tooth is a hard surface called enamel. Over time, your enamel’s constant exposure to food and drink (and cigarettes, if you’re a smoker) can leave it stained and discolored. And that yellowed smile can leave you looking old and tired. 

Fortunately, you’re not stuck with discoloration. Los Gatos Dental Care offers transformative teeth whitening to help you reclaim your smile’s natural radiance. This process works by lifting stains from your tooth’s enamel.

For your convenience, Los Gatos Dental Care offers two types of teeth whitening: in-office and at-home. If you choose the former, they apply a whitening gel to your teeth for 60-90 minutes. You leave that appointment with markedly whiter teeth. 

But you can also whiten your teeth at home. To start, Los Gatos Dental Care takes a 3D scan of your smile. Using this scan, they then create custom trays to fit comfortably and precisely over your teeth. They send you home with these trays and a specialized whitening gel

You have the flexibility to wear your trays at your convenience, for a maximum of 20 min/day,  for two weeks dramatically brightens your smile. 

When should I get teeth whitening?

Some people choose to get their teeth whitened so they look their best before a big event, like a major presentation at work or a wedding. But you don’t have to wait until a momentous occasion to get this treatment and boost your self-confidence.

Don’t hesitate to talk to Los Gatos Dental Care about teeth whitening if you’re interested in a brighter smile. 

What should I consider before teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening only lifts stains from your tooth’s enamel. The whitening solution isn’t an all-around bleaching agent, so any noticeable fillings or other dental work will still be visible. If you’re unhappy with your smile’s appearance, don’t hesitate to talk to the cosmetic smile makeover experts at Los Gatos Dental Care. 

The team can help you explore all of the dental treatments available today — like tooth whitening alongside color-matched fillings — so you can pick the right one for your smile goals.
