What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is the process of removing stains and rejuvenating discolored teeth. The treatment involves applying a peroxide-based solution to the teeth, significantly reducing discoloration. 


DNTL Studio offers safe, effective whitening solutions that can visibly remove discoloration in 30-40 minutes.

How does teeth whitening work?


Most teeth whitening products contain carbamide or hydrogen peroxide. These compounds target the stain molecules inside your teeth, making them easier to remove. Your teeth appear visibly brighter and whiter after a professional teeth whitening treatment.


Many over-the-counter (OTC) products effectively remove debris and surface stains, but they can’t touch the deeper (intrinsic) discoloration underneath. The team at DNTL Studio uses teeth whitening solutions with higher levels of hydrogen peroxide to visibly whiten your smile.

What can I expect from teeth whitening?


When you arrive for your teeth whitening visit, the team at DNTL Studio discusses your concerns and goals to determine whether you’re a good candidate. Next, they insert a lip retractor into your mouth to protect your lips from the whitening solution. They also apply a special gel to your gums to prevent irritation.


Once the preparation is complete, the team coats your teeth in a whitening solution that contains 15-25% hydrogen peroxide. They rinse off the solution and repeat the process until you attain the bright, white smile you want. 


Your results are immediate and dramatic. Many patients enjoy brighter smiles for up to three years after teeth whitening*.

Why might I need teeth whitening?


Most people experience darkening teeth as they age, primarily due to the natural erosion of enamel. Individuals with thick enamel have whiter teeth than those with a thin layer. Thin enamel exposes the darker dentin underneath.


Other factors that can cause tooth stains and discoloration include:


  • Coffee and tea
  • Red wine
  • Genetics
  • Curries
  • Soy sauce
  • Certain medications
  • Smoking cigarettes


Poor oral hygiene is also a leading cause of tooth stains. A proper brushing and flossing routine can help brighten your smile and preserve your results after teeth whitening. The team also recommends visiting for biannual teeth cleanings to promote a whiter, healthier smile.

DNTL Studio strives to improve the patient experience. We use the revoutionary iTero scanner; the industry standard for intraoral scanning. The scanner produces the most detailed 3D scans of any scanner without the discomfort of traditional impression methods.
