Teeth Whitening Q&A

What causes tooth discoloration?

Many different things can cause or contribute to tooth discoloration, but the aging process is a common culprit. That’s because only the thin outer layer of your teeth is naturally white. The next layer of hard tissue is called dentin and is naturally yellow.

As time passes you lose some of your tooth enamel, revealing more of the yellow dentin beneath. This is why babies and younger children usually have bright white smiles, while their grandparents often have smiles that have a yellow hue. 

Additional causes of tooth discoloration include:

  • Food and drinks that stain, like coffee, tea, and red wine
  • Traumatic injury
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Certain medical treatments
  • Exposure to excessive levels of fluoride
  • Tobacco use

No matter how your smile loses some of its gleam, professional teeth whitening offers a path toward a brighter grin. 

How does in-office teeth whitening work?

Trinity Dental Care proudly offers the GLO® teeth whitening system, an option only made available to dental professionals. This system uses gentle heat to amplify and accelerate the whitening process.

The experience begins with a quick dental assessment. Your practitioner then carefully isolates your tongue and other soft tissues to protect them. The next step is painting the whitening solution onto the visible surfaces of your teeth. This solution is a hydrogen peroxide gel. 

Applying carefully controlled heat heightens the benefits of the whitening solution. It’s important to prevent excessive heat, which can cause pain or damage your teeth. The professionals at Trinity Dental Care have extensive experience with the GLO system and create wonderful and safe results. 

How can I extend the results of my professional teeth whitening?

Once you see how bright your smile can be, you want to do everything you can to preserve your results. A great place to begin is by coming in for routine dental exams and professional teeth cleaning. 

These visits provide a chance for your dental care team to check for signs of decay or gum disease before these problems advance to a dangerous level. Professional cleanings remove plaque and tartar to keep your teeth shining and white. 

There are also at-home whitening kits available only from your dental professional. Be sure to ask your dentist about the options during your next office visit, which you can schedule online or over the phone.
