Teeth Whitening Q & A

What causes teeth to become discolored?

The enamel of your teeth is strong and sturdy, but it’s made of porous material that’s prone to stain. In addition to dullness over time or poor oral hygiene, teeth frequently become yellow or gray due to prolonged intake of:

  • Coffee, wine, soft drinks, and tea
  • Certain medications
  • Tobacco
  • Berries

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a bleaching procedure that lightens teeth and helps eliminate stains and discoloration. The skilled team at Houston Dental uses top-of-the-line whitening products to brighten your teeth and restore your smile.

There are many home options for teeth whitening that can help, but professional treatments done under the supervision of a dentist offer longer-lasting results. Dr. Salha offers in-office whitening treatments or concentrated take-home bleaching kits.

What happens during an in-office teeth whitening appointment?

Dr. Salha protects your gums and lips with a dental guard that he places comfortably in your mouth. He paints a whitening agent on each tooth and uses a special light that works in conjunction with the solution to penetrate the enamel. Each tooth may get several applications of the whitening gel during the one-hour session.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Not only is teeth whitening safe, but it’s painless. Because bleaching agents contain material that can erode and compromise the enamel on your teeth, the providers at Houston Dental Care encourage you to rely on an experienced dentist like Dr. Salha for professional oversight of your teeth-whitening treatment.

How often is teeth whitening needed?

Dr. Salha recommends only one or two teeth whitening procedures in one calendar year. If overused, whitening agents can damage vital tooth enamel. In-office whitening is the safest way to whiten teeth to ensure that abrasive bleaching agents don’t damage your enamel.

At your consultation with Dr. Salha, he determines the exact frequency of whitening treatments you need to optimize your results.
