Frequently Asked Questions

Does the whitening system work on Dentures, or Veneers?

The process was designed to enhance the natural whiteness of the enamel. Existing restorations such as tooth-colored fillings, dentures, crowns, bonding, veneers, and bridges do not lighten. This means that any pre-existing dental work may need to be replaced to match the new tooth shade achieved in the natural teeth, should a bleaching process proceed. Clients typically apply the gel product only to their natural teeth, allowing these treated teeth to lighten up to match a cap, crown, or veneer.

Is tooth whitening bad for your teeth?

Anything in access has the ability to cause adverse effects, because California Teeth Whitening Systems uses professional grade solutions, it is advised clients to not exceed 4X per year.

How many shades whiter can I expect my teeth to get?

The amount of whitening varies from client to client and cannot be predicted or guaranteed; but in general use, teeth may lighten anywhere from 4 to 12 shades on the whitening shade guide.  The results depend greatly on how discolored the teeth were originally.  Yellow or brown teeth, surface stains, and uniformly darkened teeth are easiest to whiten.  Additional whitening treatments may be needed in order to achieve the desired shade, especially with heavily stained teeth.

How long do the teeth whitening effects last?

Teeth whitening is not permanent. People who expose their teeth to foods and beverages that cause staining may see the whiteness start to fade in as little as one month. Those who avoid foods and beverages that stain may be able to wait one year or longer before another whitening treatment or touch-up is needed.

How long does the treatment take?

The process takes only 30-minutes, (2 – 15-minute applications) to achieve a whiter and brighter smile. It is broken down into two 15-minute applications to allow for maximum gel concentration and light exposure, without being under the light for too long of a period to cause gum irritation. Individuals with sensitive teeth may reduce the intensity of the bleaching unit by choosing a lower power setting and those with very heavy stains may need additional treatments.

What happens during teeth whitening?

When you visit your CTWC  for professional tooth whitening, your specialist will have you apply treatment that will cover your teeth with a specially formulated whitening gel. Also, your specialist will use a type of light to enhance the whitening effects of the gel.

Does the treatment hurt?

Teeth whitening may cause sensitivity during or after treatment and slight discomfort in the gums. Both of these side effects are usually temporary and will disappear a few days after treatment. It is important to tell your CTWS Specialist if you experience any of these symptoms as your specialist will be able to diffuse the irritation and will be able to advise on moving forward.

How can I make my results last longer?

Luckily, there are a number of steps that you can take to help retain your tooth whitening results. Your CTWS Specialist will conduct a post consultation and After Care sheet to follow.


Why is professional whitening better than other options?

The greatest benefit that you’ll gain by seeing a CTWS Specialist for tooth whitening is speed. Unlike over-the-counter kits, CTWS uses a stronger formula that can provide you with a noticeably whiter smile in a single treatment. At-home kits that you can pick up at the drugstore often take a week or longer to provide the slightest of noticeable results.
