4 Factors That Affect The Success of a Teeth Whitening Treatment

Are you considering a teeth whitening procedure? Here are 4 factors that can affect your outcome of this dental procedure. 

Are you feeling self-conscious about yellowing teeth?

Over the years, teeth can become discolored and stained due to a number of reasons, including:

  • Age
  • Genetics 
  • Habits (eg. smoking or use of tobacco) 
  • Over-consumption of certain foods and drinks such as coffee, tea, and red wine 

The great news? Teeth whitening is an effective and affordable method of eliminating any stains or discoloration and helping you achieve a brighter and more beautiful smile.

4 Things That Could Affect the Success of Your Teeth Whitening Procedure 

Teeth whitening is an extremely effective way of eliminating stains on teeth and achieving a brighter smile. However, before you undergo this treatment, you must be aware that there are a number of factors that could affect the success of your results, including: 

1. The Original Color of Your Teeth 

The BriteSmile Teeth Whitening technology is extremely effective for most patients, but your natural tooth color will ultimately contribute to the appearance of your final results. Typically, patients whose teeth have a yellowish hue will see extremely successful results, but this may not be true for patients with teeth that have a: 

  • Brownish shade (caused by overexposure to fluoride) 
  • Greyish shade 

Such patients may have to undergo a number of teeth whitening treatments to get the results they want. 


2. The Type of Teeth Whitening Agent You Use 

When it comes to the effectiveness of your teeth whitening procedure, the type of whitening agent you use makes a significant difference. While over the counter products may be cheaper, in-office teeth whitening produces safer and more dramatic results and has many benefits, including: 

  • Faster treatment time 
  • More uniform results 
  • Natural looking and long lasting results 
  • Fewer touch ups are required 

The customized in-office teeth whitening treatments can save you money in the long term because of their effectiveness. In addition, your dentist can tailor the treatment for better and more natural results. 



3. Your Oral Health 

Your oral health and the condition of your teeth will play a significant role in how effective, or even possible, a teeth whitening treatment is. Why? If you have cavities or plaque buildup then your teeth won’t whiten as well as teeth that are free of such conditions. 

That’s why, prior to any teeth whitening procedure, you should visit your dentist for a cleaning in order to create a good foundation for the teeth whitening products. 



4. Your Lifestyle 

Your lifestyle habits and the types of food and drinks you consume will greatly influence the success of your treatment and the longevity of the results. To ensure your teeth whitening results last, you should: 

  • Avoid smoking and the use of tobacco products
  • Minimize your consumption of acidic food
  • Limit the amount of dark-colored drinks you have, such as soda, wine, tea, and coffee 
  • Schedule regular cleanings at your local dental clinic
