What Are the Benefits of Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening treatment offers a variety of aesthetic benefits by brightening a patient’s smile and addressing tooth discoloration. The cosmetic improvement can boost a patient’s confidence and produce healthier-looking teeth. Additionally, teeth whitening can be a quick and convenient treatment that does not require multiple office visits.
Patients struggling with tooth stains, whatever the cause, often find the whitening process effective at correcting the discoloration. There are multiple factors that often contribute to tooth stains, with common causes including:

  • Dark-colored foods and beverages, such as coffee, wine, and berries
  • Acidic fruits
  • Smoking and tobacco products
  • Certain medications
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Genetics and dental trauma

Who Is a Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Ideal candidates for teeth whitening typically have mild to moderate levels of discoloration. Dr. Kudaverdian will evaluate a patient’s smile to ensure there are no conditions present that may be aggravated by whitening solutions used during treatment, such as cavities and gum disease. Porcelain veneers may be a better option for individuals dealing with severe discoloration and other cosmetic concerns, like chips or an undesirable tooth shape. Dental crowns are another alternative and may be the preferred treatment for patients that are dealing with some structural decay and damage along with tooth stains. 

How Is Teeth Whitening Performed?

While there are many over-the-counter teeth whitening products available, they are often not as effective as professional whitening treatments. Professional teeth whitening uses stronger and more concentrated bleaching agents, which can remove deeper stains and provide more dramatic results.
In addition, professional teeth whitening is safer than at-home treatments because it is supervised by a licensed dentist. Our team will carefully evaluate your teeth and gums to ensure that you are a good candidate for whitening and that the treatment is safe for you.
During your appointment, our team will apply a special whitening gel to your teeth. The gel contains hydrogen peroxide, which breaks down the stains on your teeth and removes discoloration. The gel is activated using a special light or laser, which helps to speed up the whitening process.
The entire treatment typically takes about an hour, and you can expect to see immediate results. Afterwards, we will provide you with instructions on how to maintain your new, brighter smile.

How Much Does Teeth Whitening Cost?

Teeth whitening treatment may vary depending on your individual needs, goals, and level of discoloration. Factors that could contribute to the cost include: 

  • If teeth whitening is included in a smile makeover 
  • The severity of stains and discolorations 
  • The amount of whitening gel that is used 

Once a treatment plan has been developed, patients will receive a customized quote. At 32ology Dental Studio, we believe that cost should not hinder a patient’s access to pursuing their desired treatment. We partner with third-party lenders CareCredit®, ALPHAEON Credit, and Cherry® to help offer affordable and manageable financing options to qualified patients.
