Teeth Whitening Q & A

Teeth Whitening, Bountiful, UT

Your smile matters. That’s why we offer teeth whitening at Dr. Stubbs dental office in North Salt Lake, also serving Bountiful, UT.

Do I Need Teeth Whitening?

Over time our teeth darken. For most people, it doesn’t matter how hard we try—our teeth don’t stay white. But many people ask the question: will whitening at the dentist’s office actually do that much to make my smile better?

The answer is yes. Teeth whitening procedures under the direction of a trained dental professional can make a huge difference in both how your smile appears, and how willing you are to show that smile.

If your teeth have a yellowish tint, come to our Bountiful dentist office and see what we can do. Results do vary somewhat based on the current state of your teeth, the nature of the stains on your teeth and more. Dr. Stubbs will be able to explain how the procedure will work for you.

Remember, however, that just because teeth whitening makes your smile look better, this change isn’t permanent. You still need to take care of you teeth to keep your smile white. Avoid foods that stain, and if you do consume these foods, brush your teeth immediately after.

Is Teeth Whitening Safe?

Bleaching and whitening substances used by Dr. Stubbs have been examined for safety and effectiveness. Some worry that whitening substances will damage enamel, or affect previous dental procedures. When applied correctly, the procedure is safe, and won’t have a negative impact on your teeth.

Fillings, crowns and veneers do not change color like teeth do. Come consult with Dr. Stubbs about your options if you’re worried about contrasting colors from previous dental work.

Other people worry about nerve damage from the whitening substances like carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide. Studies show these fears to be unfounded.
