Teeth whitening procedure: what to expect

Teeth Whitening Woburn MA

Has your smile lost its brilliance over time? Don’t worry, this is normal, and it is also treatable. Dr. Moutevelis and his team at Four Corners Dental Care offer a variety of teeth whitening solutions, tailored to your needs.

Causes of tooth discoloration

  • Deep stains – Despite its smooth, solid appearance, tooth enamel is actually porous. That means it can absorb small amounts of pigment from dark colored foods and beverages. Although you won’t likely see a difference after a single meal, the cumulate effects over time cause stains and general darkening of teeth.
  • Surface film – Particles cling to the surface of enamel, creating a layer known as biofilm. Plaque and tartar are types of biofilm, which are associated with tooth decay. Teeth also accumulate another type of biofilm, known as pellicle film, which is made up of protein. Although the film is colorless, it stains much more quickly than tooth enamel.
  •  Inside the tooth – Sometimes injury can damage tissue inside of the tooth, causing it to darken. In some cases, permanent discoloration occurs in childhood, as the tooth is developing.

Solutions for whitening your teeth

The first step to a brilliant smile is good hygiene and dental care. Professional teeth cleaning removes any tarter and pellicle film that has developed, as well as polishing your teeth. As a result, your smile will be brighter and more uniform in color.

Teeth whitening treatment will remove deep stains, and take the brilliance of your smile to the next level. We offer in-office treatment for fast results, or at-home kits for gradual whitening. Our professional strength whitening gel penetrates enamel to reach set-in stains. If you have permanent stains, or you are unhappy with the natural color of teeth, we may recommend porcelain veneers.

I hadn't been to the dentist in quite a while, so I was very nervous about going. I had been to some sham dentist before. (Ones that fill teeth that don't need fillings) Dr. Moutevelis is great at what he does. The ladies at the front desk are so friendly Dr. Moutevelis' dental assistant Becky is very caring & makes sure that you are comfortable during the entire procedure. The office is nice & clean & it has a homey atmosphere. I would highly recommend this office. I have since moved away & would drive the 2 hours just to go to this dentist!
