Natural aging, tobacco use, medications, wine, tea, and coffee consumption, or physical trauma can all cause staining, yellowing, and darkened tooth enamel over time. 

Teeth whitening is one of the easiest and most economical ways to improve this discoloration.

FAQ About Teeth Whitening in SE Portland

How Long Does Teeth Whitening Last When Done At Mint Dental In Portland?

Typically, you can expect your teeth to stay brighter for many months after having the procedure at our SE Portland Dental Clinic. However, there are factors that could affect the longevity. See the “Tips For Maintaining Your Whiter Smile” above for more information.

Can I Get Teeth Whitening If I Have Crowns?

Our teeth whitening procedure is meant to whiten your natural teeth. If you have crowns that are visible when you smile, it’s best to speak with our dentist to determine if this procedure is right for you.

Is It Normal To Have Tooth Sensitivity After The Whitening Process?

Some level of tooth sensitivity is normal after having your teeth whitened. The prescription strength gel used to remove the stains affecting your smile can cause your teeth to be temporarily more vulnerable to extreme temperatures.

If I’m Planning To Get Veneers, Should I Have My Teeth Whitened?

When creating your veneers, we will match the shade to the rest of your teeth to help ensure a natural-looking, beautiful smile. If you have some discoloration and would like a brighter smile, it’s best to have your teeth whitened before color-matching for your veneers.
