Teeth Whitening Q & A

Why aren’t my teeth white?

Teeth can turn dull and discolored for a variety of reasons, like:

  • Consuming dark foods and beverages like coffee, soda, carrots, and berries
  • Smoking cigarettes or chewing tobacco
  • Bad oral hygiene and at-home care
  • Medications, like certain antipsychotics and high blood pressure medications
  • Exposure to certain antibiotics before the age of eight

Your age and genetics can affect the color of your teeth, as well. As you get older, your enamel (hard outer layer of your teeth) becomes thinner, letting your dentin (the soft inner layer of your teeth that naturally yellows as you age) show through.

Because the porousness and transparency of your enamel is an inherited trait, genetics can also play a role in the color of your teeth as well.

How do you whiten my teeth?

Innovative Dental Ideas can give you a whiter and brighter smile in a single office visit with a revolutionary new service called Smile Perfected™.

Smile Perfected’s Prophy Plus™ whitening system uses pre-filled whitening trays that fit comfortably in your mouth allowing you to relax your jaw during your treatment.

The pleasant-tasting whitening gel penetrates the stains in your teeth and breaks up dark pigmentation to give you a noticeably whiter and brighter smile.

While the trays are doing their job, Dr. Butler shines an LED light on your teeth that activates a special ingredient in the gel.

Once activated, this ingredient enhances the speed and effectiveness of your whitening process. The result is exceptional results in only 20 minutes and with noticeably less sensitivity than other whitening treatments.

Finally, Dr. Butler gives you a Smile Perfected whitening pen to take home with you to keep your smile looking white, bright, and rejuvenated for even longer.

What about over-the-counter whitening strips?

Over-the-counter whitening strips and generic whitening trays have become a popular option for people looking to improve their smile.

However, they’re not nearly as effective as the professional treatment that you can get at Innovative Dental Ideas, and in some cases, they can even be harmful to your oral health.

The bleaching solution in over-the-counter products isn’t as strong as what you get with the Smile Perfected system, and because the strips and trays aren’t designed for your smile and aren’t administered by a professional, the bleaching solution frequently leaks out and damages your gums.

If you want to achieve a lustrous smile with a safe and effective treatment, schedule a visit with the professionals at Innovative Dental Ideas. You can book your visit by phone or online.
