What causes stained teeth?

Many factors can cause our teeth to become discolored or stained over time. Common culprits include:

  • Natural age
  • Coffee, tea, and red wine
  • Smoking tobacco
  • Certain medications
  • Poor dental hygiene

Over-the-counter products can be used to whiten teeth, but they often contain less powerful ingredients than those available through in-office treatment. And since these products are not designed for your unique needs, they may not deliver the desired results. A dental professional knows how to customize whitening treatments for maximum safety and effectiveness.

How does in-office teeth whitening work?

Alliance Family Dentistry performs in-office whitening using Philips Zoom professional whitening tools. The exact process varies among patients, but Dr. Frias Landa usually begins with a consultation to discuss your oral health. We want to ensure your teeth and gums are free from gum disease or other issues before moving forward. Inform our team if you have had any recent dental work.

Teeth whitening in Naples, FL is completed in about an hour and requires a prescription-strength whitening gel, along with a lighting system that whitens your smile by up to several shades. The process doesn't cause any damage to your enamel and is generally safe for people with sensitive teeth.

What happens after in-office teeth whitening?

It's important to avoid eating or drinking staining foods for at least 24 hours after undergoing whitening treatment for stained teeth. This includes coffee, tea, and dark-colored foods like blueberries. Some sensitivity to hot or cold beverages is possible for a few days. Dr. Frias Landa provides detailed post-care instructions after each appointment, and you can also call our office with questions or concerns.

Continue practicing good oral hygiene habits, such as brushing twice a day and flossing daily, to keep your newly whitened teeth in the best condition possible. And, of course, be sure to visit us every six months for professional teeth cleanings.

Do results from in-office whitening look natural?

Some people are concerned that in-office whitening treatments might look too bright or artificial. But when performed by a qualified professional, results should look natural – hopefully giving you your best grin yet.

One of the great things about in-office teeth whitening is that results are customized to your desired shade. Dr. Frias Landa takes time to select the right product, adjust treatment settings, and monitor the progress of each patient's smile throughout the entire process.
