Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): Teeth Whitening

How can we help you?

We understand the importance of patient education at the office of John S. Kittrell, DDS, and Associates. Good oral care is essential for one’s overall health, and the more knowledge our patients have about dental care, the better their oral health will tend to be.

There are a number of questions we hear rather frequently, so we have included those below.

If you have other questions that are not listed here, we invite you to ask them. Whether they have to do with your oral care specifically or your oral health generally, we want to know what you are thinking. When you have knowledge, you can make more informed decisions about your treatment options.

Don’t hesitate to ask us questions. We care about the health of you and your entire family!

Teeth Whitening

There are several methods available for whitening the teeth: in-office, at-home whitening trays, or a White-Strip kit.

One session of in-office whitening can generally be done in about 45 minutes. If you wish to have whitening trays to use at home when necessary, impressions can be taken to make the trays.

Over-the-counter daily bleaching products are available, but it is important to use any whitening product only under the supervision of a dentist.

To achieve the whitening results you desire, the ADA recommends that you seek the professional advice of a dentist, including examination and diagnosis of the cause of tooth discoloration, before you begin any bleaching program.
