Teeth Whitening

Make a Statement without Saying a Word

Brighten up your teeth and turn your smile into a show-stopper.

A great smile brings big-time confidence. And teeth that are bright and clean are a major part of what makes a smile great. 

Your teeth lose their brightness over time from things like aging and staining, it’s true. But with teeth whitening, you can put the sparkle back into your smile – or even make it look better than ever before.

When Should You Whiten Your Teeth?

Whether it’s professional or personal, there are a lot of reasons why you might want a brighter smile. Here are some of the top occasions that get people coming in to whiten their teeth:

Before getting other cosmetic dental work

Getting a crown, bonding, or dental veneers? Those things can't be whitened after they've been placed, so if you want them to match the rest of your teeth, you should get your whitening done first.

For moments when your smile really needs to shine

Maybe it's a life-changing interview. Maybe it's your big day. Either way, whitening will help you make a great impression and give you a gorgeous smile you can proudly show off when you need to look your absolute best.

If you want to get a head start on your smile makeover

Just because you're wearing braces or a clear aligner, it doesn't mean you can't also get whitening. Whitening your teeth while correcting their position will leave you with a smile that's perfectly bright and aligned.

When you need to take off years of serious staining

Coffee, cigarettes, cola - while you might've kicked the habit, its staining effects might still be hanging around on your teeth. Whitening can help you get rid of those old stains and restore the vibrancy of your smile.

After Your Whitening Treatment

Want to make the most of your teeth whitening? Keep these tips in mind:

  • Don’t skip your scheduled cleanings – They’re a must-have for keeping your teeth looking and feeling great! Just after your scheduled cleanings is also an ideal time to touch-up your smile with an at-home kit.
  • Avoid staining foods and drinks – Yes, that means things like wine and coffee. If you do eat anything that’s known to stain teeth, try to rinse your mouth with water as soon as you can.
  • Steer clear of whitening shortcuts – If you’re touching up your smile at home, you might be tempted to use more gel and wear your trays for less time. Don’t do it! Always follow the directions in your kit.

Teeth Whitening at Home vs. At the Dentist

DIY methods, store-bought kits, and in-office treatments all work to make your teeth whiter – so what’s the difference?

Compared to the whitening options here at Freedom Dental, DIY methods and store-bought products won’t deliver results that are as noticeable, the results will take longer to show up, and they won’t last as long either.

And we’re not just saying that because we don’t like competition. As licensed dental professionals, we’re able to provide you with whitening solutions that are more powerful, so you can brighten your smile faster and enjoy it for longer.

 

Teeth Whitening FAQs

How will I know that my teeth are actually whiter?

With a handy tool called a shade guide. Before you start your treatment, we’ll make a note of the color of your tooth enamel. Then, after your whitening treatment is over, we’ll use the shade guide to show you how your new enamel color compares to the old color.

Is teeth whitening safe for kids?

It is, but we typically only provide whitening to teenagers and adults with healthy teeth and gums. Why? Because children’s teeth tend to be more sensitive, and also because whitening treatments are more effective on permanent/adult teeth.

I’ve heard that tooth whitening causes sensitivity issues. Is that true?

Yes, that’s true, a bit of extra sensitivity after whitening isn’t uncommon. But it can also be avoided by planning ahead. If you know you’ll be whitening your teeth, just use a sensitivity-formulated toothpaste for a week or two before starting your whitening treatment. 

I have exposed roots. Can I still whiten my teeth?

It’s not something we recommend since exposed tooth roots are usually quite sensitive. If you’re worried about your roots being visible, we can cover them using dental bonding, a white filling, or a gingival graft.
