Teeth Whitening Q & A

Why should I whiten my teeth?

Even though the tooth color is not an indicator of your oral health, stains and discoloration can leave you feeling self-conscious about your smile. You might notice that you’re more hesitant to smile or laugh in social situations if you’re embarrassed about the color of your teeth.

Professional teeth whitening at Prime Family Dentistry is a safe and effective way to rejuvenate your smile. By removing stains associated with aging, drinking coffee, or smoking, teeth whitening can give you a restored sense of confidence in your appearance!

Am I a candidate for teeth whitening?

Your teeth and mouth need to be in good health prior to professional whitening. Dr. Yerabollu inspects your smile prior to teeth whitening to ensure that you don’t have any dental conditions that it might affect. She also recommends that patients get a professional cleaning before their treatment. 

It’s also important to note that certain restorations, like fillings, crowns, or bridges, won’t respond to whitening treatment, so you might need to have them replaced after your procedure in order to make them match the rest of your newly whitened smile.

How do you whiten my teeth?

Prime Family Dentistry offers two different types of professional whitening: In-office treatments and at-home treatments.

In-office teeth whitening

In-office whitening is the quickest way to brighten your smile, lightening your teeth by up to eight shades in a single, hour-long office visit. Dr. Yerabollu uses special tools and gels to protect your gums, lips, and cheeks, then carefully applies a professional-strength bleaching solution to the surfaces of your teeth. She lets the whitening gel take effect while you wait in the chair, and you leave the office with a newly radiant smile.

At-home whitening

At-home whitening takes longer to achieve the same results as an in-office treatment, but it enables you to whiten from the comfort of your home and can be easier on your teeth if you’re prone to sensitivity. Dr. Yerabollu provides you with a professional-grade whitening solution and custom-fitted bleaching trays that she fabricates from an impression of your smile. You fill the custom trays with the bleaching solution and wear them over your teeth for a prescribed amount of time each day. You notice a whiter, brighter smile in a matter of weeks!

Dr. Yerabollu works with you to determine which teeth whitening method is best for your smile, taking into account the degree of your staining, the sensitivity of your teeth, and how quickly you want to see results. You can even have an in-office teeth whitening and receive at-home treatment to maintain your results over time.

Although teeth whitening is a painless procedure, Dr. Yerabollu can provide you with nitrous oxide (laughing gas) if you have any sort of fears or anxieties about being in the dental chair.
