Professional Teeth Whitening at Absolute Dental in Carson City
Our professional teeth whitening service combines a hydrogen peroxide gel with an activation process that actually enhances the speed and effectiveness of the procedure. From start to finish, you can expect your whitening procedure to take anywhere from 60 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the severity of your stains.
What Can I Expect During the Whitening Process?
Your dentist chooses the appropriate whitening method and level of hydrogen peroxide for your teeth. This will vary based on the level of discoloration that has occurred.
With the measured amount of hydrogen peroxide, the dental whitening gel is applied to the teeth and left on for a period of time to allow it to treat the stains.
After the gel is removed, the patient rinses away the residue and an immediate post-treatment shade is measured. This is compared to the pre-treatment shade of your teeth to determine if the procedure was successful. Some patients will experience a whitening of up to eight shades after a single treatment!

Teeth Whitening Misconceptions
Our Carson City dentists are setting the record straight regarding these common teeth whitening misconceptions:
Nothing Can Prevent Teeth Staining
Although yellowing of the teeth comes with age, there are certain things you can avoid to help prevent noticeable staining of your teeth. Here are some things that are known to cause dental discoloration:
- Acne Medications That Use Tetracycline
- Chewing Tobacco
- High-Tannin Foods and Beverages
- Colored Sodas and Juices
Teeth Whitening Will Bleach Everything In the Mouth
There is a common perception that a whitening procedure will also bleach veneers, fillings, crowns, and other dental work. This is not true. Only the actual teeth will be whitened and all other dental work will remain the same color that it was before the procedure.
The Whitening Chemicals Are Dangerous
The primary chemical used in teeth whitening is carbamide peroxide, which breaks down in the mouth to become hydrogen peroxide during whitening. This is not a toxic chemical or dangerous to patients. You will also be closely monitored by one of our Carson City teeth whitening specialists to make sure you don’t have any reactions to the whitening gel.
A Teeth Whitening Treatment Will Last Forever
Even professional services can’t compensate for the yellowing of teeth over time. Although, with careful oral hygiene habits and an understanding of what causes tooth staining, your whitening treatment will last longer.
FAQs About Teeth Whitening
Unfortunately, most dental insurance will not typically cover the cost of cosmetic teeth whitening because it is not considered medically necessary. Ask our Absolute Dental staff for special offers on teeth whitening or payment options for your procedure. We want to make teeth whitening accessible and affordable for all our patients!
If you use tobacco products or partake in a lot of staining foods or drinks, you may experience fading of your whitening treatment after just a couple of months. However, a teeth whitening treatment should last about 12 months if the patient practices good oral hygiene and avoids staining foods and beverages.
Teeth whitening products typically contain 10% carbamide peroxide, which the ADA has approved as safe for dental use. However, some patients do experience sensitivity in the teeth and gum irritation, which can cause some problems. To avoid these issues, talk to your dentist before starting a teeth whitening treatment to ensure you are a good candidate.
Is Teeth Whitening Right For Me?
Whether you have severe discoloration or are just looking to brighten your smile, the teeth whitening process is an excellent solution for many of our Carson City patients. In the end, the results will be a healthier smile and a greater feeling of self-confidence, and no one can argue with those results.
