What is Teeth Whitening?

Before undergoing any teeth whitening procedure, it is highly recommended to consult with a reputable Temecula dentist at Ethos Advanced Dental Care. This step ensures that the whitening treatment is tailored to your specific needs and circumstances. Teeth whitening is a straightforward and safe procedure that utilizes oxygenation to lighten and enhance the appearance of discolored teeth.

The whitening process is particularly effective for addressing discoloration caused by factors such as age-related yellowing, tobacco use, alcohol consumption, coffee or tea stains, certain medications, chemically-induced stains, excessive fluoride, accidents, trauma, and decay.

However, it is important to note that teeth whitening does not produce significant results on existing crowns or porcelain veneers. While moderate success has been achieved in lightening bonding, the effectiveness may vary.

By seeking professional guidance from our knowledgeable dental team, you can receive personalized recommendations and ensure that your teeth whitening procedure yields the best possible outcomes.

Reasons for Teeth Whitening:

  • Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development)
  • Normal wear of outer tooth layer
  • Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.)
  • Yellow, brown stained teeth

Can Whitening Damage Teeth?

Documented university studies demonstrate that whitening causes no damage to the tooth structure. It does not cause brittleness or weakening of teeth; no cavities or gum problems have been shown to form because of the bleaching. Some people can experience sensitivity to hot and cold for a day or two as a side effect.

Tooth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile. Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients, there are a number of ways to whiten teeth. The most popular method is using a home tooth whitening system that will whiten teeth dramatically. Since tooth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth.

Tooth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up maybe needed every several years, and more often if you smoke, drink coffee, tea, or wine.

How Ethos Advanced Dental Whitening Works?

Our professional whitening treatment utilizes a powerful yet safe bleaching agent to remove stains and discoloration from your teeth. This treatment is much more effective than over-the-counter whitening strips or toothpaste because it delivers a higher concentration of the whitening agent for faster, more dramatic results.

Considering Home Teeth Whitening? Here's What You Need to Know:

While home whitening kits can be convenient, they come with limitations compared to professional treatments:


  • Slower Results: Home whitening products typically take longer to achieve your desired whiteness.
  • Uneven Whitening: Over-the-counter kits might not provide even whitening across your entire smile.
  • Sensitivity Issues: Some home whitening products can cause gum or tooth sensitivity.

How To Prepare for Teeth Whitening In Temecula?

Schedule a Consultation:

  • The first step is to schedule a consultation with Ethos Advanced Dental Care, your cosmetic dentist in Temecula. This allows the dentist to assess your teeth and gums, discuss your whitening goals, and determine if you’re a good candidate for teeth whitening.

Be Transparent About Medical History:

  • During the consultation, be upfront about any medical conditions you have and medications you take. Some medications can interact with whitening agents, so it’s important to disclose everything.

Schedule a Dental Cleaning (if needed):

  • We might recommend a professional dental cleaning before your whitening treatment. This removes plaque and buildup, allowing the whitening agent to work more effectively on the actual tooth surface.

Sensitivity Management:

  • Teeth whitening can cause temporary tooth sensitivity. Discuss this with us to manage it, such as using a desensitizing toothpaste beforehand.

Relax and Breathe:

  • Teeth whitening is a non-invasive procedure. Relax and breathe normally during the treatment.

By following these steps, you can ensure a smooth and successful teeth whitening experience in Temecula.

What Does Teeth Whitening Involve?

This type of tooth whitening usually requires two visits. At the first appointment, impressions (molds) will be made of your teeth to fabricate custom, clear plastic, trays. At your second appointment, you will try on the trays for proper fit, and adjustments will be made if necessary. The trays are worn with special whitening solution either twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight for a couple of weeks depending on the degree of staining and desired level of whitening. It is normal to experience tooth sensitivity during the time you are whitening your teeth, but it will subside shortly after you have stopped bleaching.
