Considering getting professional teeth whitening from our Roseville, CA, dental team?

Has your smile been looking rather lackluster lately? If so, professional teeth whitening from Roseville Family Dental Care in Roseville, CA, could be the way to regain a great look. Led by Dr. Rupi Kaur, read on to learn what this treatment can do for you.

What causes dental stains?

It’s normal for teeth to develop stains as we age. This typically happens as a result of the foods and drinks that we consume, particularly dark foods and drinks like red wine, coffee, tea, and tomatoes. Of course, there are other habits and factors that could also cause dental stains including:

  • Smoking and tobacco use
  • Certain medications (e.g. antibiotics)
  • Excessive fluoride use
  • Certain medical conditions

How does teeth whitening remove stains?

The bleaching gel that our Roseville, CA, dentists use contains an active whitening ingredient such as hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, which oxidizes the dark stain molecules within the teeth, making teeth several shades whiter. Yellow stains respond the fastest to professional whitening treatment.

What kind of results should I expect after whitening?

While results will vary depending on the type and severity of your stains, all patients will see an improvement in their smiles. Professional whitening treatment has the ability to make teeth 5-10 shades lighter, and sometimes just in a single session.

How long do results last?

How long your results last is really up to you. With proper oral care, it is possible to maintain results for one to two years. Of course, this means maintaining good oral hygiene, visiting your dentist every six months for professional cleanings, and avoiding certain foods and drinks that could produce new stains. We can also provide you with a custom at-home whitening kit to use when you want to touch up your results.

Can I whiten at home and still get visible results?

Absolutely! While over-the-counter whitening options may not give you the results you are looking for, our dental team can provide you with a whitening kit that can be performed right in your own home. Along with a powerful bleaching gel, we can also provide custom-fitted whitening trays, which ensure perfectly even and superior results across your entire smile.
