Teeth Whitening Q & A

What causes tooth stains?

Your tooth enamel may look solid, but under high magnification it's actually highly porous. This is why it's so easily stained by:

  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Soda
  • Wine
  • Foods like berries 
  • Chewing tobacco
  • Cigarette smoking

Tooth discoloration can also happen with poor oral hygiene. During the day, your teeth collect biofilm that can pull in stains and trap them in your porous tooth enamel. Fortunately, professional teeth whitening can return your teeth to their brightest shade.

How do I whiten my teeth?

Valle Smiles offers two options for teeth whitening: chairside whitening in the office and take-home whitening trays. With chairside whitening, you can get dramatic results in only one office visit. Typically, this process involves a professional-quality whitening gel, which your provider may amplify using a whitening lamp.

With take-home whitening, you get an exact-fit pair of whitening trays that the Valle Smiles team customizes for you. These trays are far superior to the “boil and bite” trays you find at a supermarket because they’re actually fabricated to fit every tooth snugly and comfortably. This ensures perfect whitening gel distribution across all of your teeth. 

With take-home whitening, you use the high-strength, proprietary whitening gel every day for the recommended time period. Very soon, you enjoy significantly whiter teeth.

Am I a good candidate for teeth whitening?

If you want to whiten your teeth and have good oral health, you're likely a good candidate. The Valle Smiles team evaluates you to make sure teeth whitening is right for you, and then helps you choose between chairside and take-home whitening. 

If you have any cavities or gum disease, it's important to get the problem treated before teeth whitening. If you whiten your teeth while you have a cavity, the whitening solution could move into the cavity and cause the decay to get into your tooth’s pulp. Don't take any risks: Have your checkup and cleaning before starting teeth whitening.

If you keep up with regular checkups and cleanings and have good oral health, you might be a candidate for the Teeth Whitening For Life program. Ask the Valle Smiles team how you can qualify for free teeth whitening!
