Why do I need Teeth Whitening?

Teeth can become yellow or stained over the years based on the food or drink you consume, your age, or plaque buildup. Drinking coffee or wine can stain your teeth while your enamel may become worn down as you get older. In some cases, smoking can also cause discoloration and lead to plaque buildup. By getting your teeth whitened, you can brighten your smile and reverse the damage caused by everyday life.

Teeth whitening can offset tooth discoloration due to plaque, tartar or other oral health concerns.

People may choose to whiten their teeth for a number of reasons. They may have a special occasion coming up where they want to look their best or may have an upcoming job interview where first impressions are key. Overall, having a brighter smile will boost your self-confidence.


Having your teeth whitened professionally in a dentist’s office will produce better results as over-the-counter products are generally weaker. Additionally, some products may have ingredients that can aggravate your teeth or gums. A dentist will take the proper precautions to ensure the whitening treatment is the right move for you. Smilovits DDS takes the time to learn about patients and understand their oral care needs.

Teeth whitening is a fast and painless procedure that produces whiter and brighter-looking teeth. It can be completed in just one visit, and the team at Smilovits DDS will ensure that you are ready to show your smile off to the world a soon as the work is done. With offerings such as Zoom whitening, treatment can take less than an hour.

How to Find a Great Dentist to Perform Teeth Whitening

Dentists performing teeth whitening should perform an initial exam before proceeding. They will match the treatment to the color of any composite material teeth and offer an at-home regimen following the procedure.

A good dentist will give you a checkup exam before performing the teeth whitening. This will ensure there are no problems with your teeth that may be irritated by the whitening procedure.


Your dentist should examine your oral hygiene and regular lifestyle habits to determine if you would be a good candidate to benefit from whitening. Some of the criteria a dentist should consider are if you have crowns or veneers, which won’t respond to regular whitening methods. The exact color of your teeth after whitening should be matched to the color of the composite material that already exists in your mouth.

This procedure requires state-of-the-art tools that will protect gums and lips from the whitening technology to keep the focus on your teeth. Smilovits DDS has the most innovative tools and every doctor is a member of the International Congress of Oral Implantology.

After the teeth whitening is complete, your dentist should layout a plan for you to maintain the brightness of your teeth after they are bleached with the peroxide gel. This may include avoiding certain foods or drinks, abstaining from tobacco products, and regularly brushing and flossing your teeth. The dentist should be available to answer any questions and will encourage you to come for regular teeth cleanings.
