Teeth Whitening Q & A

What are the benefits of professional teeth whitening?

Professional teeth whitening with your dentist allows you to have an oral exam to ensure teeth whitening is right for you. Undergoing professional teeth whitening treatments can:

  • Minimize tooth sensitivity often associated with at-home kits
  • Lower your risk of gum or lip damage from harsh chemicals
  • Result in even-toned teeth; no need to worry about splotches

Your dentist at Golden State Smiles can even help you select the right shade of white, so you’re left with entirely natural-looking, beautiful results. 

What can I expect during a teeth whitening treatment?

The dental experts at Golden State Smiles provide highly effective teeth whitening treatments, which allow you to enhance your smile during your lunch break. When you come into the clinic, you lie back in the dental chair and relax as your dentist places retractors in your mouth to protect your delicate cheeks and lips.

Your dentist brushes on the whitening gel tooth-by-tooth, ensuring each tooth is evenly covered. This whitening agent needs about 15 minutes to take effect. Your dentist might apply a specialized light to your teeth during this time so that the whitening gel can penetrate deeper layers.

After about 15 minutes, your dentist evaluates the whiteness of your teeth and compares them to a shade guide. They may recommend applying additional whitening gel and waiting longer to achieve your optimal shade of white. In general, whitening treatments take anywhere from 30-60 minutes to complete. 

How long does professional teeth whitening last?

Because Golden State Smiles offers a premier Whitening for Life program, you can have the smile of your dreams for the rest of your life. To be eligible for this exclusive program, you need to be a patient of record, stay current with your preventive dental care, and have a complete exam and set of X-rays. 

The Whitening for Life program includes:

  • One set of upper and lower trays with the starter kit (no extra charge)
  • One tube of clinical-grade whitening gel at every recall exam
  • One set of replacement trays every two years 

As long as you maintain your whitening treatments at home, brush and floss daily, and come into the clinic every six months for an exam and cleaning, you won’t have to worry about yellowing teeth ever again.
