Dental Whitening Q & A

Brilliant Smiles Bellevue

What are the causes of yellow teeth?

A variety of factors lead to your teeth turning yellow. Certain medications, age, and the things you drink and eat can all contribute. Beverages like red wine, coffee, and tea can leave surface stains on the enamel of your teeth and turn your teeth yellow. Big contributors include tobacco and smoking, too.

Eventually, these surface stains can become even harder to remove because they go beneath the enamel to the dentin of your tooth.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Yes. Teeth whitening is not harmful if you comply with product directions and guidelines. The professionals at Brilliant Smiles Bellevue offer professional whitening treatments for safe, reliable results. You can get your teeth whitened in just one appointment or gradually with a take-home teeth whitening kit.

No matter which course of treatment you choose, the whitening solution is entirely safe to place on your teeth and in your mouth. The only discomfort you may experience is temporary tooth and gum sensitivity from the bleaching agents.

What can you expect from in-office whitening procedure?

Your teeth could be up to eight shades whiter with just one simple in-office teeth-whitening treatment.* At your appointment, an experienced Brilliant Smiles Bellevue team member will fit upper and lower dental trays into your mouth. The trays will be filled with a hydrogen peroxide whitening gel.

Your practitioner will then cover your lips and gums to protect them from the powerful whitening solution. They put the bleaching solution in the trays and shine a special bright light on your teeth. You sit back and relax as the bleach and light combine to whiten your teeth during three 15-minute treatments, all happening in a single visit.

Between treatments, you wait comfortably, and after the last bleaching treatment, your dental expert applies a gel to your teeth to minimizes any sensitivity you may feel. Then you're done. Your teeth are whiter, and your smile is brighter in about two hours.

The Brilliant Smiles Bellevue team also offers at-home teeth-whitening kits for a more gradual approach to whitening teeth over a couple of weeks.
