Teeth Whitening Q & A

Why do teeth get discolored or stained?

Teeth discoloration or stain for a number of reasons. The most common of these are:

  • Drinking coffee and tea
  • Drinking cola and other dark-colored sodas
  • Drinking red wine
  • Smoking cigarettes
  • Practicing poor dental hygiene
  • Taking certain medications

Other reasons for teeth discoloration include your genetic make-up. While it’s definitely frustrating and upsetting to have discolored or stained teeth, there's great news. The Alamo Dental Excellence team offers teeth whitening options that will make you happy to smile again.


Why choose professional teeth whitening?

Although you can purchase over-the-counter teeth whitening products, like strips, toothpaste, and paint-on gels, they’re rarely powerful enough to significantly whiten your teeth. Plus, the products at the local drugstore aren’t always regulated, so you don’t really know what you’re putting on your teeth.

At Alamo Dental Excellence, you get the expert pre-whitening care necessary to protect your delicate gums during the whitening process. The whitening solution is effective enough to make a significant change in the appearance of your teeth so you can smile with pride and confidence. In most cases, in-office whitening lightens your teeth several shades.

The professional application also means you get an even distribution that gives you consistent results.


What is the process for in-office teeth whitening?

In-office teeth whitening can whiten your teeth in just one visit to Alamo Dental Excellence. Your provider uses a powerful bleaching solution along with a state-of-the-art laser to whiten your teeth in less than an hour. You’ll see the results before you leave the office.


How do I maintain my results after professional whitening?

After your professional whitening session, the staff recommends at-home care to keep your teeth looking their best and schedule follow-up teeth whitening visits once a year.

Avoiding the things that stain your teeth is one way you can better maintain your results. That doesn’t mean you have to give up your favorite drinks, though. For instance, using a straw lets the liquid bypass your tooth enamel. Of course, good dental hygiene and regular dental care are key in maintaining great whitening results.
