Whitening & Veneers Q & A

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure in which your dentist makes your teeth many shades whiter using whitening gel, teeth trays, and a special light to enhance whitening in a shorter amount of time. 

What are veneers?

Smiling Molar Dental also offers dental veneers, which are tooth-colored shells that fit over the front of your teeth to improve their shape, texture, color, size, and overall appearance. Veneers can give you the gorgeous smile you desire without pain or downtime.

Are whitening and veneers right for me?

To find out if teeth whitening and veneers are right for you, Smiling Molar Dental specialists discuss your oral health history, examine your teeth and gums, and discuss your desired results. They might take dental X-rays and evaluate them before personalizing a cosmetic dental treatment that’s right for you.

What happens during teeth whitening and veneer placement?

During teeth whitening and veneer placement, you can expect the following:

Teeth whitening

During in-office whitening, your dentist places custom trays filled with whitening gel on your teeth while you relax in a comfortable dental chair. They may shine a light on your teeth to speed up the whitening process. After your treatment, you can resume a normal routine.

Smiling Molar Dental also provides professional-strength, at-home whitening kits so you can whiten your teeth as needed conveniently from the comfort of your home.

Veneer placement

Prior to dental veneer placement, your dentist digitally scans your mouth, allowing a dental lab to create custom-fitted veneers. When they’re ready, your dentist removes a tiny bit of enamel from your teeth and bonds veneers to them to create an aesthetically pleasing, brighter smile. The procedure is fast and painless and there’s no downtime afterward.

What happens after my treatment?

Care for your teeth after whitening and veneer placement by brushing after meals with fluoride toothpaste and flossing every day. See the Smiling Molar Dental team every six months for dental cleanings, exams, and teeth whitening if needed. 

Avoid chewing on ice and other hard objects to reduce your risk of tooth (or veneer) damage. To keep teeth as white as possible, avoid smoking and limit foods and drinks that stain. Examples include red wine, coffee, tea, cola, popsicles, tomato sauce, and dark-colored juices.
