Professional teeth whitening is a phone call away!

Joseph P. Cavallo DDS, MAGD A bright, beautiful smile is often associated with oral health and wellness. While the smile is an individual’s first impression to others, it may be imperfect or stained. Thanks to continued advances in cosmetic dentistry, patients can visit their dentist for professional-grade whitening services.

What sets professional products apart from over-the-counter alternatives?

You may have seen a wide range of whitening products at the local drugstore. These over-the-counter products may include treatments such as whitening pens, strips, or trays. While these may be effective for patients seeking minimal whitening, they may not be the best choice for those who want a dramatic improvement. Instead, patients who want to brighten their smile up to eight shades whiter within a few weeks are encouraged to ask our team about our professional whitening options.

Dr. Joseph Cavallo believes that the best method of brightening the smile is with professional-grade whitening trays and bleaching gel. Our practice takes impressions of the patient’s smile to create a mold for the fabrication of trays for both the top and bottom dental arches. These trays fit snug over the patient’s teeth to ensure proper coverage when the whitening gel is administered into these trays. Patients use the whitening gel and trays every day for several weeks to gradually brighten the natural tooth enamel.

How can I maintain my results?

Professional-grade whitening can provide amazing results—but how do you keep them? Dr. Joseph Cavallo encourages patients to:

· Avoid food and drink that can stain the teeth, or swish water after consuming to reduce staining
· Maintain routine dental visits at the practice for cleanings and evaluations
· Use their whitening trays every few months as a touch-up treatment
· Take good care of the smile with brushing and flossing after every meal

Teeth Whitening: Causes and Solutions

Joseph P. Cavallo DDS, MAGD

Do you have yellow, discolored, or stained teeth?

Dr. Joseph P. Cavallo provides custom teeth whitening treatment to patients for brighter and whiter smiles. But how do teeth become discolored in the first place, and what can be done to reverse tooth discoloration?

What Stains and Discolors Teeth?

There are several common causes of tooth discoloration, yellowing, and staining:

  • Smoking and tobacco products: Nicotine, when in contact with oxygen, turns yellow. Tar naturally stains teeth. Years of smoking and tobacco use will yellow teeth and discoloration that can be difficult to remove, but removable with professional whitening.
  • Certain fruits, sodas, tea, and coffee: These foods and drinks can stain teeth. Sugar found in sodas especially can cause cavities and other dental problems.
  • Medications: Certain antibiotics and antihistamines can cause discoloration.
  • Age: As we age, our tooth enamel can wear down, showing the dark underlayer of dentin. Dentin also natural yellows over time.
  • Injury: Teeth that become chipped due to an injury can become discolored.
  • Oral care: Poor brushing and flossing habits keep teeth from staying white.

Some of these causes of tooth discoloration can also cause tooth decay and cavities. It is important to get professional whitening treatment that improves oral health and the appearance of teeth.

Teeth Whitening Treatment

Over the counter whitening treatments don’t deliver the results that professional teeth whitening can provide. Over a couple of weeks, our whitening treatment can whiten your teeth up to eight shades.

To begin the process, Dr. Cavallo will create a custom bleach tray to hold the whitening gel for your teeth. The tray is created to conform to teeth and evenly distribute the whitening gel. You can wear the trays in your mouth for several hours per day for effective results.

Results can vary from person to person and can last for six months with the proper oral care. Avoiding staining foods and drinks also help to keep teeth white.
