Teeth Whitening Q & A

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a straightforward, noninvasive treatment that changes the color of your natural tooth enamel. It’s an ideal way to improve your smile and boost your confidence.

Having whiter teeth has become the primary cosmetic concern of most dental patients. All Dental of Menifee offers safe, high-quality whitening that restores your teeth to healthy whiteness.


Why might I need teeth whitening?

You might choose teeth whitening for problems like fluorosis, a discoloration caused by excessive fluoride deposits building up as teeth develop. Medications like tetracycline (an antibiotic) can stain the teeth too.

Normal wear of your outer tooth layers and natural aging also cause discoloration. Drinking tea, coffee, and red wine stains the teeth over time, and smoking is a significant cause of yellow and brown teeth stains.


How do I prepare for teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening only works on natural enamel, not artificial teeth like crowns and bridges. Before you have teeth whitening treatment at All Dental of Menifee, your dentist evaluates any existing restorations to see if they need to be replaced.

They do any work you require after your teeth whitening treatment so that the restorations match the color of your newly whitened natural teeth.


What does teeth whitening involve?

Many products are available to whiten teeth. The most popular is a system you use at home to dramatically whiten your teeth. This teeth whitening method usually involves two visits to All Dental of Menifee. At your first appointment, your dentist will make impressions (molds) of your teeth that they use to create custom teeth whitening trays.

At your second appointment, you try on the clear plastic trays to ensure they fit correctly. Your dentist will make any adjustments needed for a perfect fit. Then you take the trays and a whitening solution home for a couple of weeks.

Depending on the depth of staining and how white you want your teeth, you can wear your trays twice a day for 30 minutes (milder staining) or overnight (more severe staining or extra whiteness). It’s normal to have tooth sensitivity during teeth whitening, but this goes away soon after you stop bleaching.
