Our patients love our high-quality teeth whitening services because it’s easy, painless, non-invasive, and, best of all, fast.

Some patients require more than one whitening visit to get the desired results, but the effects are immediately noticeable and long-lasting.
What Causes Teeth to Become Discolored?
Your day-to-day choices and actions, such as the food and drink you choose to consume, significantly impact the whiteness of your teeth. Drinking sugary or unhealthy foods and drinks and failing to maintain proper oral hygiene will quickly result in not-so-white teeth, while regular upkeep of your oral hygiene and a healthy diet will result in sparkling, white teeth. Here are some of the common causes of tooth discoloration:
- Red Wine
- Chewing Tobacco
- Specific Medications
- Poor dental hygiene
How Teeth Whitening Works
At Beavers Dentistry in Cary, we whiten teeth using a safe and efficient peroxide agent. We carefully apply a solution to your teeth to achieve the desired shade of white. This treatment is very effective and can last for several months.
It’s important to remember, though, that much of your tooth color is dependent on your lifestyle. For the longest lasting results, brush your teeth twice a day and rinse with water after you’ve had food that can discolor your teeth, such as coffee or red wine.
What’s the Difference Between Professional Teeth Whitening and At-Home Teeth Whitening?
There is an abundance of different tips and tricks out there that claim to drastically whiten your teeth. While some of these do work, others can damage or harm your teeth. Here are the primary differences between at-home whitening products and professional teeth whitening services.
- Effectiveness. Professional teeth whitening ensures that you will receive a safe treatment that actually works. Our teeth whitening services are highly effective and designed to thoroughly whiten your teeth in a safe and effective manner. Over the counter teeth whiteners may fail to work altogether, take an extended amount of time to prompt results, or only last short periods of time. On the other hand, professional teeth whitening is sure to accomplish the intended result within one or two procedures, and is also designed to have long-lasting results.
- Safety. While most over-the-counter teeth whiteners are relatively safe nowadays, the safest option is still to receive professional teeth whitening care. Professional teeth whitening services ensure that the proper solution and concentration levels of active compounds are placed on your teeth, eliminating any chance of your teeth being harmed. This also prevents overuse from occurring.
- Time. Professional teeth whitening services grant you whiter teeth in less than 90 minutes. The procedure usually takes somewhere between 30 to 90 minutes and leaves you with long-lasting results. On the other hand, over-the-counter products typically take months, along with multiple applications and tricky steps, to make even the slightest difference in your smile.
- Cost. It’s no secret that professional teeth whitening is typically more expensive than at-home treatments. However, with professional teeth whitening services, you definitely get what you pay for. At-home treatments may be ineffective and tedious, while professional treatments are quick, highly effective, and long-lasting. Once you factor in the hassle of at home treatments, professional teeth whitening services are realistically worth the cost!
