Teeth Whitening Q & A

What causes tooth discoloration?

A variety of factors can cause your teeth to yellow, including:

  • Certain medications
  • Being older
  • Stains from red wine, tea, or coffee
  • Tobacco

Over time, surface stains can get even more challenging to get rid of because they penetrate deep into the enamel of your tooth all the way to the dentin.

Is teeth whitening safe?

When you follow product specifications and instructions, teeth whitening is a safe process. Dr. Rex, and his team at DC Dental Spa offer Venus White Pro whitening treatments for safe, reliable results. You can get your teeth whitened in just one office visit or more gradually with a take-home kit.

No matter which course of treatment you choose, the Venus White Pro whitening solution is entirely safe to place on your teeth and in your mouth. The only discomfort you may experience is temporary tooth and gum sensitivity from the bleaching agents.

What should I expect during a Venus White Pro in-office procedure?

A Venus White Pro in-office teeth whitening procedure can make your teeth up to eight shades brighter after just one appointment.* At your appointment, a member of the DC Dental Spa team will first measure the original shade of your teeth. Then, a member fits a barrier along your upper and lower gum line to protect your gums from the bleaching solution.  This solution contains 38% hydrogen peroxide and an activator (Potassium Nitrate) which helps speed along the process.

You sit back and relax as the bleach and activator work together to whiten your teeth for the 1 hour power bleaching session.

The team at DC Dental Spa ensures you're comfortable and relaxed during the treatment, and after about an hour the teeth whitening procedure is complete. You should notice the results immediately, and will reach the final desired shade 2 days after the procedure.

For a more gradual approach to teeth whitening, the DC Dental Spa team also offers at-home teeth whitening gel kits, which include take-home trays.
