Teeth Whitening Q&A

What makes my teeth yellow?

Lots of different factors can cause teeth yellowing and discoloration. The foods you eat and drink, certain medications, and age might all be contributing factors. Beverages like red wine, coffee, and tea can leave surface stains on the enamel of your teeth and turn your teeth yellow. Major culprits also include smoking and tobacco.

Over time, these surface stains go beneath the enamel to the dentin of your tooth, making the stain even harder to remove.

Is whitening your teeth safe?

Definitely. Whitening your teeth is a safe process when you follow product guidelines and instructions. The team at Legacy Dental Care provides Opalescence Boost whitening treatments for safe, satisfying results. You can choose to have your teeth whitened in just one visit, or gradually with a take-home whitening kit.

No matter which course of treatment you choose, the Opalescence Boost whitening solution is entirely safe to place on your teeth and in your mouth. You may experience minor, temporary gum and tooth sensitivity as a result of the bleaching agents.

What can you expect from the Opalescence Boost in-office procedure?

A simple Opalescence Boost in-office teeth-whitening procedure could make your teeth shades brighter after just one appointment. At your appointment, one of the experienced Legacy Dental Care team members fits a tray into your mouth to keep it open during your treatment. Next, they will apply a solution to your lips and gums to protect them from the whitening solution.

Once your gums are protected, they apply the whitening gel to your teeth. Opalescence Boost doesn’t use any uncomfortable or bright lights.  You will simply sit with the gel on your teeth for about an hour, until your teeth have whitened. The entire appointment should take less than two hours.

Can I whiten my teeth at home?

The Legacy Dental Care team also offers custom, at-home teeth-whitening kits for a more gradual approach to whitening teeth over a couple weeks. These kits include trays that are created using molds of your teeth so they fit perfectly. You place specialized whitening solutions into these trays and place them over your teeth while you sleep.

At-home solutions can provide free teeth whitening for life. The durable, customized trays can be re-used for years so you can easily touch up your teeth for special occasions or to maintain your results.
