What does teeth whitening treat?

Dingy, yellowed teeth make you feel self-conscious about your smile. The outer enamel may discolor due to the natural effects of aging. Your enamel wears down, exposing the inner, darker layer. 


The white enamel also discolors if you frequently consume staining foods, like coffee, black tea, and red wine. Tobacco use also affects the color and sheen of your smile. Poor brushing habits, genetics, certain medications, and tooth trauma also change your tooth color. 


WestCare Dental offers professional teeth whitening to treat all these effects and help restore confidence in your smile. 

How does teeth whitening work?

Your provider is careful to cover the soft tissue in your mouth to protect it from being irritated by the whitening process. Then, your provider applies a professional-strength whitening gel and shines a specialized light to activate the whitener. In just an hour or so, you get teeth that are 5-6 shades whiter than when you came into the office.

If you have discoloration due to trauma or medications, traditional whitening may not work to bring you a brighter smile. However, WestCare Dental offers porcelain veneers and crowns that can mask discoloration and give you the whiter smile you desire. 

Why is professional teeth whitening better?

Many teeth-whitening products are available at your local drug store. Although, these strips, toothpastes, and paint-on gels contain a much less concentrated form of the whitening agent. They’re relatively ineffective when it comes to whitening your teeth, even if you use them for weeks on end.

Professional teeth whitening offered at WestCare Dental contains a medical-strength whitener that works quickly and effectively. Your procedure is efficient and pain-free. You don’t have to worry about managing messy strips or ill-fitting whitening trays. 

Is teeth whitening safe?


When applied by a professional like those at WestCare Dental, teeth whitening is completely safe. You avoid any soft tissue irritation and get a uniformly brighter smile. 


If your teeth are more sensitive following your whitening appointment, know this is normal and temporary. You should be able to enjoy your smile confidently and comfortably within just a few days.
