Questions About Teeth Whitening


Does Tooth Whitening Hurt?

Advances in tooth whitening procedures have all but eliminated any pain typically associated with the procedure. Some mild discomfort and increased sensitivity may be experienced by a few patients, but by and large the products available at Cooley Smiles are both pain free and effective.

Is Tooth Whitening Safe?

According to the American Dental Association, it is safe to whiten your teeth every six months. Modern tooth whitening procedures will not negatively impact enamel or interfere with the basic function of your teeth and gums.

What is the Most Effective Way to Whiten Teeth?

There are a number of options available for tooth whitening, and the most suitable method for you may not be the most suitable for everyone else. You can achieve excellent results with a variety of professional in-office and take-home tooth whitening systems. However, over-the-counter whitening products generally do not provide comparable results.

Bellevue cosmetic dentists Dr. Aaron Cooley and Dr. Brandon Cooley use the Dash Tooth Whitening system for all of their in-office procedures and the Discus Night White® Bleaching System for take-home procedures. Over the years, Dr. Aaron and Dr. Brandon have tried several different tooth whitening systems, but feel that these two consistently provide the best results.

Can Mineral and Fluoride Stains be Removed with Tooth Whitening?

Stains under the enamel of your teeth cannot be removed with tooth whitening products. In order to treat those stains, Dr. Aaron and Dr. Brandon generally recommend porcelain veneers.

How Long Does Tooth Whitening Take?

In-office procedures can take anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour. Take-home kits generally must be used daily for up to 14 days to provide exceptional results.

How Long Will My Results Last?

With proper oral hygiene care and regular cleanings at our office, your tooth whitening results may last for several years. Making sure you minimize coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco intake will help prolong the effects of your treatment. As your teeth become stained again, you can return to our office for a touch-up treatment.

Please contact the Bellevue cosmetic dentists at Cooley Smiles today if you have questions about tooth whitening cost, or to schedule your tooth whitening session. We serve patients in Seattle and Bellevue, Washington.
