Teeth Whitening Alpharetta, GA

Are your teeth yellow and dull? As we age, our teeth collect staining agents from common foods and drinks. This means our teeth lose their pearly white color in exchange for a yellow and dull exterior. Even if you practice good oral hygiene, teeth stains remain a common dental concern for many people. Dr. Hedlund provides cosmetic dentistry treatments to help people whiten their teeth. Teeth whitening in Alpharetta, GA is a very popular treatment allowing people to instantly improve the appearance of their smile. Once your treatment is complete, you will fall in love with your new smile and enjoy the confidence boost.

Teeth Whitening FAQs

Do you have questions about professional teeth whitening? Read through our frequently asked questions to learn more about it. If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact Esthetic Dental Solutions.

Does teeth whitening hurt?

Our patients report experiencing little-to-no tooth sensitivity or gum irritation during or after treatment. Additionally, we customize the strength of each treatment to ensure that it is not too powerful for our patients with extremely sensitive teeth.

How long will my teeth remain white?

The brightening effects of our Zoom teeth whitening solutions can last many years depending on your oral hygiene routines, though this can vary depending on each patient. Your eating and drinking habits, as well as any tobacco use, can all increase the possibility of your teeth becoming yellow again. To help your teeth remain bright, brush and floss regularly.

Additionally, avoid eating or drinking substances that stain your teeth, like berries, hard candy, coffee, tea, and soda. If you see signs of staining, feel free to schedule another appointment for an additional office teeth whitening treatment.

Is professional teeth whitening safe?

Yes, professional teeth whitening is safe, mainly when performed by a cosmetic dentist. The high concentration of bleaching agents may cause some people to have brief tooth sensitivity and gum irritation. However, these side effects will subside within a few days after treatment. To ensure safety, our dentists will protect your gums and soft tissues during the in-office whitening treatment when applying the bleaching agent.

Am I a good candidate for professional whitening?

Most adults who are in good oral health can get their teeth whitened. People with gum disease, tooth decay, sensitive teeth, or any other major dental issues should avoid professional teeth whitening. Any woman who is pregnant and nursing should not have their teeth whitened. Before every treatment, we will screen patients to see if teeth whitening is a proper treatment for them.

How long do professional teeth whitening take?

The length of an Opalescence® Boost whitening gel session can vary depending on the degree of discoloration and the desired results. Typically, a teeth whitening session lasts between 60 to 90 minutes.

What are the potential side effects of professional teeth whitening?

Some people report tooth sensitivity or gum irritation after a professional teeth whitening treatment. These side effects are typically short-term and will subside in a few days. Rarely do some people have enamel erosion or uneven whitening. Uneven results are standard if you have dental restorations like dental crowns or dental veneers.

How long will my teeth whitening results last?

The effects of tooth whitening will vary greatly from person to person. Most people can expect their results to last between six months and two years. Factors such as diet, oral hygiene, and tobacco use can impact the longevity of the results. Regular touch-ups can help maintain the brightness.

Can I get professional whitening results at home?

Yes, Esthetic Dental Solutions offers professional teeth whitening at home. These deliver superior results, but they will simply take longer to achieve. You can only purchase these at-home professional whitening products from a dentist’s office. They pre-fill trays with a high-concentration bleaching agent in each tray. They are more effective than any store-bought whitening product, which has a lower concentration of bleaching agents.

What are the alternatives to professional teeth whitening?

There are other ways to get a whiter smile. We can use porcelain veneers, dental bonding, and dental crowns to whiten your teeth and fix different problems. These methods can address discoloration, chips, cracks, and gaps. Dr. Hedlund will suggest the most suitable option based on your needs and goals.

Can professional teeth whitening remove stains from braces or veneers?

Our professional whitening treatments cannot remove stains or discoloration from any type of dental restoration, such as crowns or tooth veneers. These materials are not permeable to bleaching agents and will not respond to whitening treatments. If you have braces, you should wait until they are off before whitening your teeth. If there are stains on your porcelain veneers, you may need to replace them.
