Teeth Whitening Q & A

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure that fixes the shade of your teeth and alleviates staining. It might sound like a minor fix, but just one teeth-whitening treatment makes a big difference for your whole appearance. There’s nothing like a bright, white smile to capture positive attention from others around you. Plus, it boosts your confidence and helps you appreciate what you see in the mirror.

Whitening treatments include a bleaching agent that lifts the shade of your teeth, much like the bleach you use to keep your clothing bright white. The bleach reaches deep into your enamel to remove stains and brighten the whole tooth. One whitening treatment can make your teeth up to eight shades whiter, and the team at Fibonacci Dental Studio can give you an example of how white your teeth may become during treatment.


What types of teeth-whitening treatments are available?

At Fibonacci Dental Studio, you have the choice between two types of teeth-whitening treatment:

Take-home trays

Take-home trays are custom fit to the contours of your teeth and are made using impressions of your mouth. They’re filled with a whitening product that has a longer shelf life than the products at the office but works in the same way. Depending on the bleach content, you may need to wear them for several hours during your leisure time or overnight while you sleep.

In-office procedures

Teeth whitening in the office happens in an hour-long appointment. The team applies a whitening gel to your teeth and uses a harsh light to help it process faster.


What kind of staining does teeth whitening target?

Teeth-whitening systems like those offered at Fibonacci Dental Studio specifically work on extrinsic stains, which are typically yellow or light brown. These stains develop over time as the result of foods and other things that you consume, including:

  • Red wine
  • Brown sodas
  • Berries
  • Grape juice
  • Coffee
  • Chewing tobacco
  • Cigarette smoke

Another kind of staining, called intrinsic staining, usually appears gray in color and is not in the enamel. Instead, it affects the inside dentin. It comes from medications and impact injuries. If you have intrinsic staining, you may be better off improving the appearance of your teeth with veneers or cosmetic crowns.
