Teeth Whitening Q&A

What causes tooth stains?

Tooth stains happen for a variety of reasons. There are two general types of tooth stains:

Extrinsic stains

Extrinsic stains are the most common type of tooth stain. They're the tooth enamel stains that happen after repeated exposure to coffee, tea, nicotine, red wine, and other dark or bright colors in food and beverages. Extrinsic stains are very treatable with professional teeth whitening at Luxe Clinical Aesthetics. 

Intrinsic stains

Intrinsic stains are the inner tooth stains affecting the dentin, the layer of the tooth under your enamel. There are several reasons for intrinsic stains, including aging, some kinds of medication (tetracycline is a common culprit), and too much fluoride exposure. Intrinsic stains are much harder to treat, and might not respond to teeth whitening. 

Your Luxe Clinical Aesthetics provider can evaluate your teeth to determine whether teeth whitening is a good fit for you.

How does teeth whitening work?

Luxe Clinical Aesthetics uses a 16% hydrogen peroxide gel, which is prescription strength and available only from medical professionals. It’s safe and effective, even for sensitive teeth. Your provider protects your gums with gentle vitamin E ointment and a cheek retractor during treatment.

After applying the gel, your provider uses a cool blue LED light to activate it. You generally have three whitening sessions, each lasting 15 minutes, for a total appointment time of under an hour. You see immediate results, and many patients enjoy multiple shades of whitening.

What does LED light therapy do for my face?

LED light therapy includes red, blue, green, and amber light, delivered at the same time as your teeth whitening. Each color light helps with specific skin concerns.

  • Red: fine lines and wrinkles
  • Blue: acne
  • Amber: redness 
  • Green: blotchy skin tone

LED light therapy is completely noninvasive and painless, and it can give you some pretty impressive results, including clearer, tighter, smoother, and younger skin. Talk to your Luxe Clinical Aesthetics provider about your particular skin troubles to help them tailor your treatment.
