Teeth Whitening

by Roland Elazegui, DMD

What causes teeth to stain?

Several factors can lead to discolored teeth including:

  • Tobacco use
  • Taking certain medications
  • Aging thinning your enamel
  • Trauma to your enamel or dentin
  • Foods like curry and tomato sauces
  • Beverages like wine, coffee, and tea

Depending on the cause of your teeth discoloration, you might be a good candidate for teeth whitening.

What is teeth whitening?

When your teeth are yellowed and stained, the easiest way to restore their appearance is through teeth whitening with bleaching agents like hydrogen peroxide.

There are several types of teeth whitening products available, including toothpastes, gels, rinses, strips, and trays, but the safest way to achieve the best results is through professional whitening with Dr. Elazegui.

How does professional teeth whitening work?

EDental offers two methods of professional teeth whitening treatments: in-office and at-home.

In-office whitening

Professional whitening treatments offered at EDental are the fastest way to see immediate results. During your appointment, Dr. Elazegui applies a whitening agent directly to your teeth. This application is activated by a special light or laser to accelerate the whitening process.

In-office whitening typically takes one to two hours. Multiple appointments might be required to reach your whitening goals.

At-home whitening

At-home treatments from EDental offer the results of professional whitening in the comfort of your own home.

Unlike over-the-counter teeth whitening systems, professional at-home whitening involves bleaching trays custom-made for you at EDental. To whiten your teeth, you fill the trays with a whitening solution that contains a peroxide bleaching agent.

At-home treatments take as little as 15 minutes or last overnight. Depending on your whitening plan, your results can take three days to two weeks to achieve.

What are the benefits of professional teeth whitening?

The professional teeth whitening systems available through EDental offer several advantages to over-the-counter products, including:

  • Less irritation to your gums and soft tissue
  • Higher-strength bleaching agents for better, faster results
  • Personalized whitening plans to help you reach your desired goals
  • Customized trays that improve contact with the whitening agent on your teeth
