What to Expect from Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is a non-surgical, non-invasive cosmetic dentistry procedure performed by the experienced dental team at La Puente Family Dental Center. Upon arrival for your teeth whitening appointment, your gums and lips will be protected with a special cover. Then professional whitening gel, containing hydrogen peroxide will be applied to your teeth.
While the gel is on your teeth, a light will be positioned to shine on your teeth to activate the whitening agents in the gel. Within just minutes, stains will begin to break up and disappear. The same process will be repeated. After the desired results have been achieved, a gel designed to minimize tooth sensitivity will be applied to your teeth.

FAQs About Teeth Whitening in La Puente
How Long Will My Teeth Stay White?

Twice yearly dental cleanings, twice daily brushing, and daily flossing will help your teeth stay whiter longer. Teeth whitening can be repeated as often as your dentist recommends.
Is Teeth Whitening Safe?
Yes. Teeth whitening provided by an experienced dentist is completely safe. But be sure to ask your dentist if you can use at home kits in between professional teeth whitening to ensure you don’t strip away your tooth enamel by whitening too frequently.
Doe Teeth Whitening Damage Teeth?
Professional teeth whitening provided by La Puente Family Dental Center will not damage your teeth.
Does Insurance Cover Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic treatment, so it is not covered by insurance.
Can I Whiten My Teeth if I Have Crowns or Fillings?
Dental restorations cannot be whitened. However, if you only have restorations such as crowns and fillings in the back of your mouth, they may not show when you smile. For best results, talk with Dr. Kumar about whether teeth whitening is right for you.
