Teeth Whitening Q & A

What are the causes of yellow teeth?

Lots of different factors can cause teeth yellowing and discoloration. Age, certain medications, and the foods you eat and drink may all be contributors. Surface stains on the enamel of your teeth from drinks like tea, coffee, and red wine, can make your teeth appear yellowish. Tobacco and smoking are also significant causes.

Eventually, these surface stains can become even harder to remove because they go beneath the enamel to the dentin of your tooth.

What types of teeth whitening treatments are available?

Dr.Kravecs offers several different, highly effective teeth whitening treatment options, including:

Custom Trays

With this option, your dentist takes impressions of your teeth that are used to create custom-made whitening trays in the on-site lab. The staff verifies the fit of the trays and demonstrates how to load the tray with a whitening agent. This option allows you to whiten your teeth at your own pace. You can also touch up your smile at home before special occasions.

In-Office Whitening

Whitening your teeth during an in-office appointment allows for fast, dramatic results. You can brighten your smile up to 14 shades in as little as one hour! You have the option of spending a little bit more time with the whitening agent if you want to achieve a little extra brightness to your smile. The longevity of results depends on how well you care for your teeth, but custom trays worn at home can help prolong whitening results.

Permanent Teeth Whitening

For a permanent whitening option, Dr. Kravecs offers minimal prep veneers. Veneers are thin layerings of porcelain that cover the front side of the teeth. The process may take several appointments, but the results are fantastic and virtually permanent. Over time, you just need to maintain regular appointments to make sure the veneers don’t require minor adjustments.

Are you sure teeth whitening isn't dangerous?

Yes. As long as you obey product instructions and guidelines, teeth whitening is an entirely safe process. Robert A. Kravecs Jr, DMD, LLC, provides whitening treatments for safe, satisfying results. You can choose to have your teeth whitened in just one visit, gradually with a take-home whitening kit, or with porcelain veneers.

No matter which course of treatment you choose, the whitening solution is entirely safe to place on your teeth and in your mouth. You may experience minor, temporary gum and tooth sensitivity as a result of the bleaching agents.
