What is Proprietary Teeth Whitening?
Many people find themselves unhappy with the color and appearance of their teeth. Stains from orthodontic work, food, drink, and lifestyle choices can get in the way of a bright smile.
Teeth whitening can put the finishing touch on your smile. Embrace Orthodontics offers a unique teeth whitening process that gives excellent results.
Teeth whitening is also called teeth bleaching. Dentists use whitening solutions containing peroxide to remove stains and make smiles brighter and more youthful. Our proprietary process gives you excellent results with less teeth sensitivity than other alternatives such as Zoom! whitening.
Benefits of Proprietary Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening does more than brighten your smile. Here are the benefits of teeth whitening:
People with braces sometimes have stains on their teeth where they can't remove plaque and tartar. Even adults with braces have trouble cleaning under the wires and close to brackets.
Food, beverages, and lifestyle choices like smoking and alcohol cause staining. Intensely pigmented or highly acidic drinks cause the most stains.
Teeth Whitening Promotes a Youthful Appearance
Whitening teeth brings back the youth in your smile. As people age, their teeth naturally become yellow. Just one whitening treatment typically takes years off your appearance.
Improve Your Self-Confidence
Having brighter teeth will make you happier to show off your smile. Your positive attitude will affect others and improve your self-esteem.

Frequently Asked Questions about Proprietary Teeth Whitening
Here are our patients' most common questions about teeth whitening:
Why does orthodontic treatment sometimes cause stained teeth?
Plaque sometimes collects under braces wires and around the brackets attached to the teeth. Despite every effort to keep teeth clean during treatment, sometimes stains form. Getting your teeth whitened is an excellent way to finish your orthodontic treatment journey.
How long does teeth whitening last?
Results should last anywhere from six months up to 3 years. The longevity of the results strongly depends on your home care techniques. Proper brushing, flossing, and avoiding staining foods and drinks, as well as tobacco, are essential.
What should I avoid eating or drinking after having my teeth whitened?
Most people know you should avoid coffee, tea, cola, and red wine after whitening your teeth. All of these beverages have high acid and pigment levels.
For the first 24 hours after whitening, eat light-colored food that is not too sugary. You can return to a regular diet after 24 hours, but continue to avoid highly pigmented and staining foods and beverages to preserve your newly bright smile.
Can I have my teeth whitened if I have crowns and veneers?
If you're planning a smile reconstruction, it's best to have your teeth whitened before getting crowns and veneers. Tooth whitening solutions do not affect the porcelain in crowns and veneers. Generally, it would help if you waited two weeks after whitening to install crowns or veneers. Talk to your dentist and orthodontist about when you should have each procedure done.
