Teeth Whitening Q&A

What is teeth whitening?

Given that a smile is the first thing that you notice when you are introduced to someone, it’s no surprise that so many people want it to be beautiful and bright. However, it is common for teeth to become discolored over time for several reasons, including improper maintenance, disease, certain medications, and other issues. 

As its name implies, professional teeth whitening is a popular procedure to whiten your teeth and restore their brightness. University Place Smiles offers teeth whitening treatments to their patients, helping them achieve a brighter smile in a convenient and easy appointment. 

What should I expect at my appointment?

Teeth whitening can be performed in as little as 20-30 minutes, with many patients simply receiving treatment after a regularly scheduled teeth cleaning. During the treatment, the team at University Place Smiles applies a special bleaching agent to your teeth. They then treat this bleach with a special light to enhance the effect. 

Your University Place Smiles provider can also provide you with take-home treatment trays. These trays use a similar bleaching agent to provide an extra dose of whitening power and can be used from the comfort of your own home. 

Speak with the team at University Place Smiles to find out if teeth whitening is right for you. 

How long does teeth whitening last?

Teeth whitening is not a permanent treatment, as your teeth can become stained again from regularly consuming certain food and beverages. However, with proper oral care, many people can experience effects lasting over a year. 

Is teeth whitening safe?

Professionally administered teeth whitening is safe for most patients. Certain individuals may be advised against whitening their teeth, such as those with specific allergies or younger children. 

Having your teeth whitened by a professional ensures that the treatment is applied correctly, helping to eliminate unwanted side effects. The team at University Place Smiles will work with you to determine if teeth whitening will be safe and effective for you.
