Understanding The Basics

The Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening gives you a fresh start, and it removes stains caused by tobacco use, drinking coffee, tea, and wine, and from the natural aging process. The powerful whiteners we use will break the bonds that hold stains onto your teeth, restoring the natural bright color of your enamel.

The biggest benefit of this is that you’ll feel great about your smile. You can feel confident when you smile, laugh, speak, and eat around others, and you’ll want to show off your brilliant new teeth. 

Not only that, but teeth whitening is very affordable and totally non-invasive at our West Hartford practice. It’s a good option if you’re interested in cosmetic dentistry, but you’re on a tight budget or want to avoid more invasive procedures like veneers.

Types Of Teeth Whitening We Provide

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

For take-home whitening, Dr. Kaur will create a set of custom whitening trays based on impressions of your teeth. Then, she will give you a set of whitening products and instructions on how to use them. You can whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home, and still enjoy professional-grade results.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

 If you want fast results, take-home teeth whitening is a great choice. You can boost your smile by 5-10 shades in just one appointment. Dr. Kaur will clean your mouth, coat your gums with a special protectant, and use retractors to protect your cheeks and tongue. Then, she’ll apply a powerful whitener, activate it with a special light, and leave it in place for a few minutes. After that, she’ll rinse it away and repeat this process until your smile has reached its ideal shade.

How Long Does Teeth Whitening Last?

Teeth whitening usually lasts 1-3 years. If you want to keep your smile bright, there are a few steps you can take to prolong your results.

Good oral hygiene

Make sure to brush at least twice a day for two minutes, and floss once per day to keep your mouth healthy and keep your smile bright.

Six-month cleanings & exams

Routine cleanings at our West Hartford office help eliminate plaque and tartar, and let Dr. Kaur keep an eye on your oral health, too.

Lifestyle Changes

Reducing your intake of coffee, tea, wine, and other staining foods and drinks can help prevent stains in the future. Rinsing or brushing your mouth after consuming staining foods and drinks is also a good choice, and will help prolong your results.

Toothpaste & Mouthwash

You can use whitening toothpaste and mouthwash to maintain your results. Choose products that are accepted by the ADA, and make sure you follow the instructions on the package closely to avoid over whitening your teeth.


Take-Home Vs. In-Office – What’s Best For Me?

If you’re looking to whiten your teeth quickly, in-office whitening is the way to go. It’s a great option if you want a brighter smile for a wedding, business conference, or photo shoot. However, it may not be the best option if you have sensitive teeth, since the whitening process is a bit more intense.

Take-home whitening is a better option if you’re not in a rush, and would prefer to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home. You’ll get the same professional-grade results, but it will usually take 2-3 weeks for your smile to reach maximum brightness. Some West Hartford patients actually prefer this, though. Because the results take longer, it’s less obvious that you’ve had your teeth whitened.
