Teeth Whitening Q&A

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening with Dr. Rindge is a cosmetic dental procedure used to make your teeth many shades whiter after just a single treatment. It’s simple, fast, and painless and produces dramatic whitening results.

Why does teeth staining occur?

Just about everybody experiences teeth staining over time. But you may be wondering why? Discoloration can occur because of:

  • Aging
  • Red wine
  • Tea
  • Coffee
  • Sodas
  • Dark juices
  • Berries
  • Popsicles
  • Tomato sauce
  • Smoking
  • Some medications

Teeth whitening can give you the boost of confidence you desire at the office or with professional-strength, at-home treatments.

Is teeth whitening right for me?

To find out if you’re a good candidate for teeth whitening, Dr. Rindge and his team review your medical and dental history. They examine your teeth and gums and might take dental X-rays to rule out or detect oral health problems. If you have tooth decay or gum disease, Dr. Rindge treats it before beginning teeth whitening.

What should I expect during teeth whitening?

During teeth whitening at the office of Mark F. Rindge, DDS, you can choose from at-home teeth whitening, in-office whitening, or both. In-office whitening uses stronger whitening products and offers you whiter results in fewer sessions.

During whitening treatments, Dr. Rindge puts whitening gel on trays and places them on your teeth while you relax in a dental chair. He might use a special LED light to accelerate the process. The procedure usually takes less than 60 minutes to complete.

If you prefer at-home whitening, Dr. Rindge gives you custom-fit dental trays and whitening gel to use at home. To achieve optimal results, follow his instructions. Multiple at-home whitening sessions can help you reach the white shade you desire.

How can I keep my teeth white?

Over time you may notice some tooth discoloration returning. Periodic whitening touch-ups can help you maintain long-lasting whitening results. Brush your teeth at least twice daily, floss every day, and attend professional dental cleanings every six months.

Don’t live with stained teeth that keep you from smiling. Schedule a teeth whitening appointment at the office of Mark F. Rindge, DDS, by phone or book online to make your smile shine.
