Frequently Asked Questions

Who is a good candidate for teeth whitening?

Most people with healthy teeth and gums are decent candidates for teeth whitening. However, whitening may not be suitable for those with severe tooth sensitivity, gum disease, or very dark intrinsic stains. A dentist can help you determine what’s good for you. 

Can teeth whitening damage tooth enamel?

Teeth whitening should not damage enamel. Professional treatments are safe for your teeth. They use the correct amounts of bleaching agents to avoid damaging enamel. However, overuse of whitening products, especially over-the-counter ones, can harm enamel.

Will teeth whitening work on dental restorations like fillings, crowns, or veneers?

No. Whitening treatments only affect natural tooth enamel. If you want to match the color of your restorations to your whitened teeth, you may need to replace them. We can help you plan the best approach for achieving a consistent look.

How long do teeth whitening results take?

How long teeth whitening takes will vary depending on the method your dentist uses. In-office treatments usually take about one to two hours to achieve results. At-home whitening kits a dentist provides can take a few days to weeks. Over-the-counter products can take longer, often several weeks. Your dentist can recommend the best option for you. Regular maintenance helps keep your teeth white for a longer time.

Will teeth whitening work on naturally yellow teeth?

Yes, teeth whitening can work on naturally yellow teeth to some extent. Professional in-office whitening treatments from a dentist are the best option. They use strong bleaching agents like hydrogen peroxide to penetrate deeper into the tooth. At-home whitening products like strips and toothpaste can also help with yellow teeth. However, it’s important to note that there is a natural limit to how much teeth can whiten. Factors like genetics, enamel thickness, and the underlying dentin color will determine the effectiveness of your treatment.

Does dental insurance cover teeth whitening?

No, dental insurance usually does not cover teeth whitening. Most insurance plans consider it a cosmetic procedure and do not include it. You’ll likely need to pay out of pocket for whitening treatments. It’s best to check with your insurance provider to know what your policy covers.
