Teeth Whitening Q & A

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is an elective dental treatment that helps brighten your teeth and improve your smile. Teeth whitening uses bleaching products to get rid of stains on the enamel surface of your teeth, leaving your smile up to eight shades whiter. 

Your tooth’s enamel becomes discolored when you eat or drink dark-colored foods or beverages, such as coffee, tea, berries, or red wine. Smoking can also discolor your teeth. Once your tooth’s enamel is stained, it can’t be brushed clean even with professional teeth cleanings. 

Able Dental Care proudly offers Glo™ Science technology for both in-office and at-home teeth whitening. This revolutionary approach to whitening uses light waves and a hydrogen peroxide-based solution to help you achieve your whitening goals. 


Am I a good candidate for teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is best for patients with good oral health. You may not be a good candidate for professional teeth whitening if you:

  • Are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Are less 16 years old
  • Have decaying teeth or oral infection
  • Have receded gums or exposed roots
  • Have periodontal or gum disease
  • Have discolored teeth due to medications or injury

During your initial consultation, Dr. Muscato discusses your teeth whitening options and offers alternatives, such as veneers, if in-office or at-home treatments aren’t the best solution for you. 


What happens during teeth whitening treatments?

Able Dental Care offers both in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments. They use a patient-focused approach to determine how best to help you meet your goals. It is essential that your teeth whitening system fits you, your routine, and your goals well. 

In-office treatments offer impressive results in under an hour. Your skilled specialist cleans and prepares your teeth and applies the professional-strength solution to your teeth. The patented Glo system uses gentle heat and light to help the whitening solution penetrate deep into the layers of your teeth. The system offers rapid results without the extreme sensitivity familiar with in-office treatments. 

In-home treatments can stand alone or maintain your teeth whitening between in-office treatments. At-home kits include a whitening solution and a specialized tray that holds the solution and delivers heat and light to both the top and bottom at the same time. At-home whitening takes a little while for just a few days (not weeks) and delivers exceptional results.
