Teeth Whitening Q&A

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure that removes stains from the surface of your teeth. It uses safe, FDA-approved ingredients, like carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide, to oxidize your teeth. Oxidation breaks down dark molecules in your tooth enamel, making your smile appear brighter and whiter.

Why would I need teeth whitening?

At Bella Vita Dentistry at Glade Parks, Dr. Amria uses teeth whitening to eliminate stains and discoloration. Some of the leading causes of tooth discoloration include:

  • The natural aging process
  • Oral trauma
  • Taking a medication with tetracycline
  • Drinking dark beverages like cola or red wine
  • Tobacco use

You might also experience tooth stains or discoloration if you fail to practice good oral hygiene. Make sure to brush and floss two times daily.

What are the types of teeth whitening?

Bella Vita Dentistry at Glade Parks offers several types of teeth whitening, including:

In-office whitening with Philips Zoom!

In-office whitening with Philips Zoom! can make your smile up to eight* shades lighter in under an hour. During this type of teeth whitening treatment, Dr. Amria applies a whitening solution to the surface of your teeth. After it sits for several minutes, she points a blue light at them, triggering a whitening reaction.

Dr. Amria repeats these steps until you achieve your desired results. Afterward, she provides care instructions.

Take-home teeth whitening trays by Opalescence™

If you’d rather whiten your teeth at home, consider take-home trays by Opalescence™. Take-home whitening trays are custom oral aligners that fit snugly over your teeth. You line them with a whitening gel and wear the aligners for three to four hours, whenever it’s most convenient.

Are the results of teeth whitening permanent?

The results of teeth whitening aren’t permanent, but they last an average of six months*. To extend your results, Dr. Amria recommends brushing and flossing daily and visiting Bella Vita Dentistry at Glade Parks every six months for an oral exam and professional teeth cleaning.

To minimize the build-up of stains, try drinking dark beverages from a straw and avoid foods that stain like berries or tomato-based sauces.
