Teeth Whitening Q & A

Pecos Dental

Is it safe to get my teeth whitened?

Yes, as long as it’s done in a professional setting.

Harsh bleaching agents can damage delicate gum tissue and leave you with overly sensitive teeth. That's especially true if the whitening agent isn’t applied properly.

By having your teeth whitened by Dr. Hsu, you can feel confident that the treatment is expertly applied, thus preventing sensitivity and ensuring your gums stay healthy.

Am I a good candidate for teeth whitening?

If you have yellowing or discolored teeth, a whitening treatment is an ideal solution. It’s a safe and effective treatment for getting rid of surface stains and restoring the natural white shade of your teeth.

You might not be a good candidate for teeth whitening if you have crowns, bridges, or tooth-colored fillings on your front teeth. Restorative dental pieces won’t lighten with your natural teeth, and this could result in an uneven and undesirable appearance.

Let Dr. Hsu know if that applies to you. It might be better to look at alternative treatments, like veneers.

What should I expect from a professional teeth whitening treatment?

Dr. Hsu uses the most advanced teeth whitening system on the market: Opalescence Boost. Before getting started, she will insert a cheek retractor to keep your lips and cheeks away from the bleaching agent. The next step involves applying the Opalescence Boost solution with a gentle brush tip.

This whitening solution contains potassium nitrate and fluoride, which are chemically activated. This means your treatment won’t require an uncomfortable light to achieve the best results. The solution immediately goes to work and brightens your smile in about an hour.

After reaching your optimal shade, Dr. Hsu will have you brush and rinse your teeth. You will leave the office more confident with a brighter smile. To prevent new stains, avoid drinking or eating stain-causing beverages and foods -- such as coffee or berries -- for several hours after your treatment.
