What Is Professional Teeth Whitening?

Professional teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure aimed at lightening the color of teeth and removing stains and discoloration. Unlike over-the-counter teeth whitening products, professional teeth whitening is carried out under the supervision of Dr. Robinette and his dental team. This procedure uses stronger whitening agents and blue light technology to achieve more noticeable, consistent results.

Why Choose Professional Teeth Whitening at Dentistry by Design?

A question patients often ask is, “Why should I opt for professional teeth whitening when countless over-the-counter products are available?” The answer lies in the experience, technology, and precision that Dentistry by Design of Spring Hill offers. Dr. Robinette’s in-depth understanding of dental anatomy ensures the treatment is safe, effective, and tailored to your unique needs.

The Professional Teeth Whitening Process at Dentistry by Design



The journey begins with a consultation with Dr. Robinette. At our Spring Hill dental office, you’ll discuss your goals and expectations. Dr. Robinette will also examine your teeth and gums to determine if you’re a good candidate for professional whitening.



Before the whitening treatment begins, Dr. Robinette will thoroughly clean your teeth to remove debris and plaque. This step helps the whitening solution work effectively. Your Spring Hill dentist may also take a shade assessment of your current tooth color to help us track the progress and compare your results after the treatment.



To safeguard your gums and oral tissues, Dr. Robinette will apply a protective barrier or gel. This prevents the whitening solution from coming into direct contact with sensitive areas.


Application of Whitening Solution

The dentist will apply the whitening solution to your teeth. This solution often contains hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, which breaks down stains and discoloration.



We may use a blue light to activate the whitening solution to enhance its effectiveness and accelerate the whitening process. Throughout the procedure, a member of our Spring Hill dental team will closely monitor your comfort and progress. We’ll also reapply the whitening solution as needed to achieve the desired results.


Rinsing and Evaluation

Once we’ve reached your desired level of whiteness, Dr. Robinette will rinse off the whitening solution and remove the protective barriers. You’ll then be able to see the immediate results.

Depending on the initial shade of your teeth and the level of whiteness you want to achieve, Dr. Robinette may recommend multiple treatment sessions. 


Maintaining Your Whitening Results

Now that we’ve illuminated your smile, you’ll want to protect your results to keep them looking stunning for longer. Here are Dr. Robinette’s tips for maintaining your teeth whitening:

  • Brush and Floss Regularly: Twice daily brushing and once daily flossing can help remove plaque and bacteria that cause stains. 
  • Avoid Staining Foods: Reducing your consumption of staining foods, such as red wine, coffee, tea, and cherries, can help keep your teeth whiter for longer. 
  • Quit Smoking: Smoking creates stains on the teeth and contributes to many oral health problems. Quitting is a great way to reduce stains after teeth whitening. 
  • Stay Hydrated: Drinking lots of water helps flush out food particles and staining agents that discolor your teeth. 
  • Visit Dentistry by Design for Routine Checkups: Regularly visiting our Spring Hill dental office for dental checkups and cleanings can help you maintain your whitening results. 


Frequently Asked Questions


Can I whiten my teeth if I have dental restorations?

Teeth whitening doesn’t work on restorations because they’re made with non-porous materials such as ceramic or porcelain. While these restorative materials are resistant to stains, this also means teeth whitening solutions are ineffective. However, your dentist can help you explore alternative options to enhance your smile. 


Is professional teeth whitening safe?

Absolutely! Dental professionals use safe, clinically proven methods to whiten your teeth without compromising oral health. By releasing stains within your enamel, professional teeth whitening treatments are more effective and safer than at-home options. 


How long do the results last?

The longevity of results varies from person to person. However, with proper oral care and maintenance, the effects can last for a year or more. Discuss with your dentist for specialized advice on how to keep your teeth looking white after the whitening treatment.


Will the treatment make my teeth sensitive?

While some patients may experience temporary sensitivity, it’s generally mild and subsides shortly after the treatment. If you’re feeling intense sensitivity following your treatment, call your dentist for advice or to schedule an appointment.
