Teeth Whitening FAQ

Book a dentist appointment with your McAllen pediatric dentists at Heroes Dental to boost your confidence and keep you smiling big and bright.

Teeth whitening procedures are not invasive and produce results quickly, and this cosmetic procedure is less expensive than most. Professional teeth whitening can create the confidence you and your children deserve by restoring the sparkle in your smiles. 

Although the whiteness achieved after a session depends on how discolored your teeth are, professional teeth whitening can help them become almost ten times whiter after only one session.

The biggest concern people tend to have about this procedure is whether the procedure could potentially damage their teeth. Rest assured that this procedure is safe and will not cause harm to enamel or gums when done by our oral healthcare professionals. 

The tools and materials used during a teeth whitening procedure are safe and do not have any negative long-term or short-term effects. Our knowledgeable staff performs the procedure with much care and attention to safety.

For most people, getting their teeth whitened does not cause any pain. The only exceptions are those who have weak enamel. In this case, the procedure may cause sensitivity to the teeth that should only last for a few days. 

Usually, before a teeth whitening procedure, your McAllen cosmetic dentist will provide a teeth cleaning to check on the state of the enamel, which will help to prevent any pain and sensitivity during and after the procedure.

The result of teeth whitening can last from 6 months to a year if you and your families take care of your teeth and develop a solid oral hygiene routine. Things you can do to prevent staining are limiting the consumption of foods and drinks like coffee, dark sodas, and tomato-based sauce.

As always, practicing good oral hygiene can help you maintain the good and prevent the bad. Remember, it is recommended you and your little ones brush your teeth twice a day for 2 minutes each time. Flossing and using mouthwash are also essential parts of good oral hygiene. 

Practicing ideal oral hygiene can help your kid’s enamel stay strong and will generally keep their smile bright. 

As previously mentioned, avoiding food and drinks that stain your enamel will keep your teeth shimmering, as well as scheduling regular cleanings with your McAllen pediatric dentists.
