Our teeth naturally lose their sparkle over time. As we grow older, they yellow which can damage our self-confidence in a world where appearances matter. Thankfully, brightening your smile is both simple and affordable with our teeth-whitening dentist, Dr. Kapoor. We provide professional and safe teeth-whitening procedures at Sunshine Dental where brightening your smile is as easy as one-two-bleach!
Why do teeth change color?
When discoloration is a result of surface stains, a consistent routine of brushing and flossing daily will whiten discolored teeth. If your teeth are yellow because the enamel has worn down and the color of the dentin underneath the surface enamel has darkened, our teeth whitening treatments may be the perfect option for you. Whether it’s age, oral care habits, or genetics, we offer a variety of teeth whitening options that will set you on the path to the dazzling smile you deserve.

How long do the effects of teeth whitening last?
The condition of your teeth, the degree of the staining, and the bleaching system you choose all play a part in how white your teeth become and how long they’ll stay white. Just as your teeth naturally darken over time, so will your new bright smile. Most patients don’t notice any fading until 6 months to a year after treatment. We offer quick touch-up procedures at any time.
How is teeth whitening done?
For Special Occasions
Our teeth whitening appointments are quick and convenient. We offer in-office chemically activated one-hour whitening treatments that are perfect for those with busy schedules or special occasions that require a bright, white smile on the run.
If you prefer to whiten your smile in the comfort of your home or you would like to have a kit on hand for spontaneous touch-ups, we offer a simple, professional alternative to over-the counter treatments that requires no trays or impressions. We would be happy to set you up with this teeth-whitening option during a consultation in our office.
Another safe and convenient teeth-whitening treatment system of ours involves an initial appointment with our team in which we take impressions of your teeth to create a customized set of trays. Then, at home, in as little as 15 minutes, you can achieve your preferred level of whiteness with our custom trays. This system comes in a variety of different strengths, so you can choose the level of whiteness most suitable for you.
Is teeth whitening bad for you?
No! Teeth whitening with bleach has been around for years, and all our techniques are ADA approved. The American Dental Association says that hydrogen peroxide whiteners are safe and effective. We recommend you follow the product’s instructions carefully. Give us a call if you find the whitening process is causing you discomfort.
How do I keep my teeth white?
Using your teeth-whitening products consistently will keep your smile from darkening. If your goal is to keep your teeth at their whitest while avoiding using teeth whiteners as often, brush and floss regularly, quit smoking, limit stain offenders, such as coffee, tea, and red wine, and regularly attend your dental cleanings.
Do teeth whiteners damage existing dental restorations?
No. Teeth whiteners cause no damage to existing dental restorations, but they won’t lighten the restorations either. So, make sure to lighten your teeth to the color of your crowns, bridges, etc. so they match pre-existing restorations.
