Teeth Whitening Q & A
What makes my teeth yellow or dark?
Your teeth can turn yellow or dark for a variety of reasons. Certain medications, age, and the things you drink and eat can all contribute to discoloration. Surface stains on the enamel of your teeth from drinks like coffee, tea, and red wine, can make your teeth look discolored. Major culprits also include smoking and tobacco.
Eventually, the surface stains can get even more challenging to get rid of, because they soak deep into the enamel of your tooth to the dentin.
Is whitening your teeth safe?
Definitely. Whitening your teeth is a safe process when you follow product guidelines and instructions. For reliable, safe results, Dr. Yoon at Scottsdale Family Dental provides Venus White® whitening treatments. This easy-to-use system whitens your teeth steadily over time with a take-home teeth whitening kit.
As long as you follow Dr. Yoon’s guidance closely throughout your teeth whitening process, your oral health will be safe and you can get the beautiful white teeth that you’ve been wishing for.
How does the teeth whitening process work?
The take-home Venus White kits have several different formulations, and Dr. Yoon will help you choose the right one for your whitening goals.
The kit includes custom-fitted whitening trays along with a mint-flavored peroxide whitening gel. Depending on how much whitening you need, you’ll have either 16%, 22%, or 35% whitening gel. Typical use patterns for the trays include:
- 35% gel: 15 minutes, twice a day, or 30 minutes once a day
- 22% gel: 60 minutes, 1-2 times per day
- 16% gel: 4-6 hours daily
Alternatively, you may opt for overnight wear of either the 16% or 22% gel (the 35% gel is too strong for overnight use.) Your total wear time depends on your individual needs and goals, but Venus White is generally worn for a maximum of 14 days.
You’ll have a checkup with at Scottsdale Family Dental once your teeth whitening treatment is complete, at which time you’ll evaluate at your progress. Many patients enjoy dramatically whiter teeth after Venus White teeth whitening, and this can give you a whole new feeling of confidence when you smile.
