Tooth whitening is not just performed for cosmetic reasons. You may pursue teeth whitening to reduce the look of discoloration related to a prescribed medication.
Like many patients, you may claim that your number one dental concern is to have whiter teeth. After all, your teeth are one of the first things that people notice about your appearance, so it is important to have a healthy, young, and whiter looking smile.
Our teeth are one of the most noticeable features on our bodies. They are vital when it comes to you eating, but they are just as important in helping you communicate. Your smile can be an appealing and foundational attribute when it comes to your self-confidence and self-esteem in personal and professional encounters.
At Vita Dental our entire staff embraces the value of your smile. We collectively aspire to provide you with a stress free and state-of-the-art experience during your visit. We hope you leave feeling confident in your healthy smile and your relationship with our team. Our goal at Vita Dental is to consistently provide a quality dental experience while you are relaxed in our calming environment.

Tooth whitening is not just performed for cosmetic reasons. You may pursue teeth whitening to reduce the look of discoloration related to a prescribed medication. Prescription medications such as Tetracycline can discolor teeth if it was prescribed at a young age when your adult teeth were still developing. Another reason you may opt for tooth whitening include reducing the look of Fluorosis, which is when you had too much Fluoride treatment as your teeth were developing. This condition will leave large white or yellow lines on your teeth that can be reduced by tooth whitening. What is excellent about teeth whitening is that it is a non-invasive treatment that can be done quickly and efficiently at Vita Dental.
If you suffer from discolored or stained teeth you may feel embarrassed by your appearance, often becoming less social. In these cases, consulting with us can be one of the most life-changing procedures for you in returning the perceived value in your smile with healthy teeth and gums to show.

The Life Expectancy of Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is not a permanent solution. You will need to undergo regular tooth whitening sessions to maintain the look and results of your treatments. If you continue to engage in specific activities after having your teeth whitened, then you are more likely to need additional whitening treatments and more often. Events and activities that could increase the need for further tooth whitening treatments include smoking, drinking coffee, tea, or colas, as well as red wine. If you eat highly concentrated citrus or heavily colored foods, especially darker berries, you may also see the need to whiten more often.
Home versus Professional Whitening
Working with Vita Dental to whiten your teeth is the ideal approach. While over-the-counter teeth whitening solutions will provide improvements in the levels of discoloration or stains that appear on your teeth, having our team perform teeth whitening treatment is the most efficient way to achieve the results you desire. If having teeth whitened at-home is important to you, Vita Dental can also offer an at-home component or kit that can be purchased and used under the supervision of our office. Sometimes, our in-office treatment is combined with at-home treatment to ensure a longer-lasting result. Working with us to have teeth whitening also provides a great deal of comfort to you if you are concerned with tooth sensitivity or any side effects. Some patients will experience sensitive teeth, gums, and a tingling in their mouth.

How the Teeth Whitening Treatment Works at Vita Dental?
We will begin your teeth whitening treatment with a proper professional cleaning of your teeth. We will then make an impression of your teeth so from that we can make custom trays that fit your teeth perfectly. The primary advantage of having the treatment supervised by us versus having it at home is that the concentration of the hydrogen peroxide bleaching ingredient is considerably higher than the retail products. We simply put the gel into the trays and monitor the improvements.
Using these personalized trays allows for the best possible results. The over-the-counter tooth whitening systems also just have generic, one-size-fits-all whitening trays, which yields far less impressive results overall. Depending on how much whitening treatment is needed, you may have these whitening trays in place with the whitening gel for more than one appointment.
If you have porcelain crowns, it could be necessary to replace them if your newly whitened natural teeth no longer match the crown. All these factors will be discussed before any treatment begins. It is always important that you have all the information you need to make informed decisions about your oral health. Do not make the mistake of thinking teeth whitening is just a cosmetic procedure; it can improve oral health just like other dental procedures.
We Put Patients First
AT VITA DENTAL
If you have questions about Vita Dental or any of the procedures we offer, please contact our office at (317) 288-4226 or via an online contact form. We will gladly schedule a complimentary consultation to discuss your treatment options.
Following a tooth whitening treatment at Vita Dental, you may experience tooth sensitivity. We will recommend that you reduce and monitor your intake of coffee, tea, colas, red wine, and citrus, tomatoes and berries for a few days while the tooth whitening sets in. It is also advisable to reduce the consumption of these beverages and foods anyway because they wear away the enamel quicker, which will then reduce the positive results of the tooth whitening treatment and increase the need for other dental treatments.
Proper brushing and flossing must always be continued, and your regular six-month appointments are essential to maintain the success of your teeth whitening procedure and perform touch-ups, as necessary. If you have any questions about whether teeth whitening is for you, just give us a call for a consultation. Teeth whitening is quick and easy and will provide you with an immediate boost in your self-esteem.
