Teeth Whitening Q & A

What are the benefits of professional teeth whitening?

It’s common to question whether opting for professional teeth whitening is going to be more effective than at-home teeth whitening kits. The issue with home whitening kits is that it’s easy to get the abrasive solution onto your delicate gum tissue, which can lead to bleeding and sore gums.

Plus, you may leave the solution on too long and cause tooth sensitivity, or not leave the bleaching agent on long enough and end up with poor results. Professional teeth whitening treatments prevent these issues. Your personalized whitening treatment at Battle Ground Dental:

  • Leaves your teeth several shades whiter in a single session
  • Minimizes tooth sensitivity or gum irritation
  • Provides even whitening results

Because professional teeth whitening involves being monitored by dental professionals, you can feel confident that your treatment is going to be safe and effective.

How does teeth whitening work?

Teeth whitening with a state-of-the-art professional teeth whitening system helps you achieve a visibly brighter and whiter smile with one short treatment. The clinical-grade bleaching agents penetrate through your tooth’s enamel and outer layer to brighten the underlying layers.

The team offers in-house teeth whitening with trays customized to fit your mouth. They also offer at-home teeth whitening trays so you can brighten your smile in the comfort of your own home.

What happens during teeth whitening?

Your professional teeth whitening session at Battle Ground Dental is entirely comfortable and pain-free.

After cleaning and polishing your teeth, your dental professional puts a retractor in your mouth to keep your lips and cheeks away from your teeth. They carefully apply a protective solution and then the whitening gel to each tooth individually.

All you have to do is lie back and relax as the bleaching agents whiten your teeth. After about 15 minutes, your dental professional examines your teeth to see if they’re the shade of white you want. If you want to go whiter, they can simply apply a little more gel and have you relax a little longer.

Once your teeth whitening treatment at Battle Ground Dental is complete, you rinse out your mouth thoroughly. The team often suggests avoiding foods and drinks (except water) for several hours and counsels you on steps you can take at home to keep your teeth white for as long as possible.
