It’s quite natural for teeth to lose their sparkle over time. As we age, our teeth slowly yellow which causes many of us to feel self-conscious and to lack confidence in a world where appearances matter. The good news is there are simple, affordable things that can be done to brighten your smile, and we are proud to provide professional and safe teeth whitening procedures at Eckland Family Dentistry. In fact, brightening your smile can be as easy as one-two-bleach!

Why do teeth change color?
For some, discoloration is a result of surface stains, and a stricter regimen of brushing and flossing daily can significantly whiten discolored teeth. For others, teeth may look yellow because the color of the dentin underneath the surface enamel shows more as the translucent enamel has worn down. Whether it’s age, inadequate oral care habits, or genetics, we offer a variety of teeth whitening options that can set you on the path to the dazzling smile you deserve.

How long do the effects of teeth whitening last?
There are several variables when it comes to the degree of whiteness that’s achievable for each individual. How you care for your teeth, the condition of your teeth, the degree of the staining, and the bleaching system you choose all play a part in how white your teeth can become and how long they’ll stay white.
Just as your normal teeth darken over time, so will your new bright smile. Most patients don’t notice any fading until 6 months to a year after treatment. We offer quick touch-up procedures at any time. Some of these can be done at home in 20 minutes.

FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS
Teeth whitening appointments are quick and convenient. We offer in-office chemically activated two-hour whitening treatments which are perfect for those with busy schedules or special occasions that require an immediate bright, white smile.

This system comes in a variety of different strengths, and we look forward to helping you choose the product most suitable for you.
Teeth Whitening FAQs
Is teeth whitening safe?
Yes! Bleaching has been around for decades, and all our techniques are ADA approved. The American Dental Association has said that hydrogen peroxide whiteners are safe and effective. It’s important that you follow the product’s instructions carefully, and don’t hesitate to give us a call if you find the whitening process if causing you discomfort.
How do I keep my teeth white?
Regularly using your teeth whitening products will keep a sparkle in your smile. Of course, there are steps you can take to keep your teeth at their whitest while avoiding using teeth whiteners as often. Brush and floss regularly, quit smoking, limit stain offenders, such as coffee, tea, and do I dare say – red wine. Regular dental cleanings will also help to keep staining and yellowing at bay.
Do teeth whiteners damage existing dental restorations?
No. You will cause no damage to existing dental restorations if you use teeth whiteners. However, these restorations won’t lighten either. So, you’ll want to lighten your teeth to the color of your crowns, bridges, etc. Or you’ll want to replace pre-existing restorations so that they match the color of your new whitened teeth.
