Teeth Whitening Q & A

What causes teeth to discolor?

Teeth naturally discolor with time and lifestyle habits. Factors that cause them to yellow include: 

  • Aging
  • Certain medications
  • Certain foods
  • Smoking and other tobacco use

You may develop surface stains on the enamel of your teeth due to coffee, tea, or red wine consumption. These surface stains sink deeper, beneath the enamel of your tooth to the dentin, making the stain more difficult to remove. Only the latest professional teeth-whitening products can combat these deep stains. Over-the-counter pastes, gels, and strips are no match.

Some causes of tooth discoloration, like discoloration caused by trauma or the use of certain antibiotics, are not correctable with topical whitening procedures. In these cases, the dentists at Loudoun Family and Cosmetic Dentistry may recommend other cosmetic corrections such as veneers, bonding, or crowns to enhance your smile.

Is GLO Science teeth whitening safe?

Teeth whitening is a safe and reliable process when directed by experts, such as those at Loudoun Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. The team ensures you follow product guidelines and instructions. You also have access to support from the dental professionals at the office.

The GLO whitening solution is proven to be safe and effective. The whitening procedure causes minimal gum and tooth sensitivity while helping you to achieve optimal results.

What is involved in GLO Science teeth whitening?

GLO Science features clinically proven effective bleaching substances and warming light technology. After the professional application of the GLO Science whitening product, the warming heat and light technology accelerate and enhance the process. An in-office procedure takes about 60 minutes to achieve brighter, whiter teeth.

If you prefer a more gradual whitening effect, the dentists also offer a take-home system for whitening with GLO Science. You’re given customized trays filled with a professional-grade whitening solution that you wear at home for a directed amount of time every day. At-home GLO products are easy to use.

The dentists at Loudoun Family and Cosmetic Dentistry discuss your whitening goals, budget, and concerns with you to determine which method is best.
