Teeth Whitening Q & A

IPI of Torrance

Why do teeth turn yellow?

Many factors contribute to teeth yellowing. Certain medications, age, and the things you drink and eat can all contribute. Beverages like red wine, coffee, and tea can leave surface stains on the enamel of your teeth and turn your teeth yellow. Tobacco and smoking are also significant causes.

Over time, these surface stains can reach beneath the enamel of your tooth to its dentin, which makes the stain even harder to get out.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Definitely. As long as you obey product instructions and guidelines, teeth whitening is an entirely safe process. The team at IPI of Torrance provides professional whitening treatments for safe, satisfying results. You can decide to have your teeth whitened in one office appointment or gradually over time with a take-home whitening kit.

In either instance, the whitening solution is not harmful to put in your mouth and on your teeth. Note that the bleaching agents may cause some non-permanent gum and tooth sensitivity, but this is the only discomfort you might feel.

What can I expect from the in-office teeth whitening procedure?

A professional in-office teeth-whitening procedure could make your teeth up to eight shades brighter after just one appointment.* During your visit, a professional IPI of Torrance team member will fit lower and upper dental trays in your mouth. These trays will hold the hydrogen peroxide whitening solution.

Your practitioner will then cover your lips and gums to protect them from the powerful whitening solution. They fill the trays with the bleaching solution and position a specialized bright light over your teeth. In a single visit, you sit back and relax for three 15-minute blocks while the light and bleach interact to whiten your teeth.

You wait comfortably between treatments until your final bleaching treatment is complete, then your dental expert places a post-treatment gel on your teeth to reduce any sensitivity you might feel. Then you're done. You have whiter teeth and a gorgeous smile in about two hours.

The IPI of Torrance team also offers at-home teeth-whitening kits for a more gradual approach to whitening teeth over a couple weeks.
