Professional Whitening vs. Commercial Products
There are many commercial products that claim to give your teeth the gleam you want. These advertisements are online, on TV and even on our podcasts. However, the promise of results from even name-brand whitening products such as whitening strips, mouthwash or toothpaste are often lackluster and time consuming.
At Smiles Family Dental, we hold ourselves to a higher standard. You should be able to see visible results after a single teeth whitening treatment. After just one professional whitening treatment that can take less than an hour, your teeth can become up to eight shades lighter! That brighter, whiter smile you want before your next big event is just one appointment away.
Say Goodbye to Stubborn Stains
Most commercially available teeth whitening products focus on the overall whiteness of your teeth, rarely mentioning how their product can address severe stains that cling to our teeth. With a professional-grade teeth whitening treatment from Smiles Family Dental, we can promise a brighter smile and solutions for difficult staining, thanks to our powerful cleaning agents.
Some stains are the result of favorite drinks like coffee, tea and wine, due to the fact many of these beverages contain dark chemical substances called tannins. The problem with these foods and drinks that carry a high level of tannins is that they are also likely to stick to our teeth. This is because tannin gets stuck in the pores of our tooth enamel, eventually building up and resulting in stains.
Since these stains come from organic compounds such as tannin, our office uses specialized whitening agents to remove them. These whitening agents use peroxides (such as carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide) to break down and eliminate the unsightly organic material that results in stains.
Peroxides contain highly volatile oxygen molecules, which break the chemical bonds that allow stains to cling to tooth enamel, allowing your teeth’s natural gleam to return.

What Is the Tooth Whitening Process?
In-office whitening treatment is often the fastest, most direct method to create the brighter smile patients want. Naturally, we have created a streamlined process to deliver these results smoothly and effectively without sacrificing any of the quality you have come to depend on from our dental professionals!
The process begins with the dentist making a record of the current shade of your teeth. Your teeth are then polished with a grainy material called pumice, which removes any plaque on the surface. After this step, your mouth will be isolated with gauze to keep your teeth dry.
Retractors may be used to keep the soft tissue of your mouth (cheeks, lips and tongue) away from the whitening solution.
Next, the teeth are coated with a whitening solution. The solution typically includes either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide as the bleaching agent. Once applied, the solution is left on the teeth for up to an hour, though the exact timing can vary, depending on the severity of discoloration.
Once the optimum shade has been reached, the teeth are rinsed. Depending on your teeth’s sensitivity, fluoride application may be applied. With the completion of this process, you should be able to notice the immediate results!
