Teeth Whitening Q & A

Why are my teeth not white?

Your teeth lose their shine for a number of reasons, including: 

  • Bad oral hygiene
  • Smoking cigarettes or chewing tobacco
  • Consuming darkly pigmented foods and beverages, like soda, wine, and coffee
  • Certain medications
  • Early exposure to tetracycline antibiotics

Your teeth also get naturally discolored as you age. The hard outer layer (enamel) wears down and gets thinner, exposing more of the soft inner layer (dentin), which is typically yellow but can be gray or black. 

Genetics can also play a role in the color of your teeth since enamel thickness is actually an inherited trait.

How do you whiten my teeth?

A New Smile CC offers a couple of different options for putting the sparkle back in your smile, including:

In-office whitening

In-office whitening under the direct supervision of your dentist can brighten your smile by up to eight shades in a single 45-minute office visit. 

Your dentist first protects your gums, lips, and cheeks with special instruments and protective coatings, then carefully applies a professional-strength whitening gel to your teeth. Your teeth whiten while you’re in the dental chair, and you leave the office with a glistening white smile. 

A New Smile CC offers both Philips Zoom!® and KöR whitening for its in-office treatments.

Take-home whitening

At-home whitening allows you to brighten your smile from the comfort of your home. A New Smile CC gives you personalized bleaching trays that are custom-built from an impression of your smile. 

You fill your trays with a whitening gel and wear them over your teeth for the specified amount of time every day. You’ll have a noticeably brighter smile in just a matter of weeks.

What about just using a store-bought whitening kit?

You should never whiten your smile with an over-the-counter kit. They’re ineffective at best and can actually be harmful to your oral health.

Store-bought whitening kits use generic strips and trays that aren’t designed for your unique smile, so the bleaching solution frequently leaks out and irritates your gums. 

And when the whitening solution does manage to stay in contact with your teeth, it’s not nearly as effective as what you get at A New Smile CC, meaning your results won’t be as dramatic.

If you want an exceptional smile, you need professional treatment. Schedule your teeth whitening today by calling A New Smile CC or booking an appointment online.
