Understanding the Difference Between Bleaching and Teeth Whitening
As you age, your teeth can become darker due to changes in the structure of teeth as the enamel becomes less porous. This means bacteria, foodstuff and tobacco, even some antibiotic medications, can stain your teeth more easily.
For the past decade, an increasing number of products aimed at teeth whitening have become available. With such a wide selection of products and use of terms like teeth bleaching or teeting whitening, choosing what’s right for you can be confusing. Let’s start with understanding the difference between bleaching and whitening.
Bleaching is a process that actually bleaches the tooth, meaning it changes the tooth’s natural color. Bleaching agents contain peroxides that help to remove deep and surface stains.
Whitening is any process that aids in making teeth whiter. Thus, bleaching can be considered a form of teeth whitening. But, there are numerous non-bleaching teeth whitening agents that work by physical or chemical action to remove surface stains. Note that these products act on surface stains, not deep stains.
Which Teeth Whitening Process Is Right For You?
Over-the-counter products contain peroxide bleaching agents, typically 10 percent carbamide peroxide. The amount of active ingredient is low enough to be safe and effective for most people. Over-the-counter products are intended for use over 2 to 4 weeks, though results after using them may vary from positive to poor. Tooth sensitivity and occasional irritation of the gums are common side effects, particularly in the early stages.
Some toothpaste products claim they can whiten teeth. These products usually contain polishing or chemical agents that improves teeth appearance by removing surface stains through polishing or other non-bleaching action. These products vary in their effectiveness depending on how often you brush and your brushing technique. Thus, they can take a long time for results to become noticeable.
Professional teeth whitening is safe, effective and fast with results seen typically in less than one hour. Look to Dr. Stacy Johnson for immediate, brighter smile with advanced whitening technology.

Kimberly the office manager is excellent at her position. She is caring, helpful and does her job in a timely manner. Stacy the dental assistant has a personality well fitted to her position and is proficient at her job. Dr. Stacy Johnson was a delightful man. His chair-side manner puts you at ease. He personally went out to introduce himself to my husband and give an overview of the visit. The entire staff were friendly and professional. professional. We feel fortunate to have found this dental practice because of the close proximity to our home. Dr.Stacy Johnson and his partner have a very nice mailer introducing themselves that we received the day before I needed and emergency visit. Same day appointment commenced approximately 20 minutes later.
Anyone seeking a dental practice should not hesitate or look any further. I recommend them very highly. I must admit a dentist visit is something that causes me anxiety. I had a panic attack in the first 15 minutes through no fault of the dental staff. Stacy my dental assistant was so caring and comforting I was able to complete a root canal and 2 crowns. The staff was so very helpful with contacting my family for my transportation home. I was finished in the time frame I was told and able to go to work. The procedure went smoothly and painlessly. Later that evening I was still without any discomfort. Dr Johnson personally gave my a call inquiring about how I was doing. The following day I was able to complete an 8 hr. workday. Thank you for such great care.
