Teeth Whitening Q & A

What is professional teeth whitening?

Professional teeth whitening solutions are only available through a dental provider. Truth & Laughter Dentistry administers and monitors teeth whitening treatments to ensure the process is painless and effective. The highly-concentrated bleaching gels and peroxide solutions used by a dentist are not only superior in quality and results than over-the-counter solutions but also safer overall.  

What are the benefits of professional teeth whitening?

Professional teeth whitening systems and technologies offer many benefits over over-the-counter products. These include:

  • The safest form of bleaching and whitening
  • More concentrated products
  • Medical-grade quality
  • Less risk of gum and tooth sensitivity
  • Fastest results
  • Can brighten smile by several shades
  • No risk of damage to tooth enamel

How long does it take to whiten my teeth?

Most men and women who come to the office for professional teeth whitening see results after just one session of treatment. Occasionally, you may need several sessions to achieve optimal results. Individual results will depend on the amount of discoloration your teeth had initially.

Many men and women prefer a more natural and slightly off-white shade, so they won’t need an aggressive teeth whitening regimen. Some patients prefer a gleaming white shade, which can require more sessions to achieve.

Regardless of your individual goals, Dr. Muzaffar will customize your treatment plan to help you achieve a white smile as soon as possible. The practice is committed to fitting your schedule with availability after work hours and over the weekend!

How do I maintain results with professional teeth whitening?

While professional teeth whitening produces dramatic results, the results are temporary. If you continue to enjoy coffee and tea, or if you smoke regularly, your teeth will again stain over time.

However, touching up with an at-home teeth whitening regimen and using only medical-grade products from the dentist’s office can help you maintain a beautiful white smile. Dr. Muzaffar will create a plan for you and suggest lifestyle changes to help you maintain your results
