How Does Take-Home Whitening Work?
The process of remaking your appearance starts with visiting our office for a consultation. While you’re here, we’ll assess the current status of your teeth and take dental impressions. They’ll be used to craft custom-fitted trays that you’ll use to apply the whitening gel. This will ensure a safer application and effective results.
We’ll provide you with instructions on how to apply the high-powered bleaching agent, but you’ll be able to create your own daily schedule for when to wear the trays. This will eliminate the stress of having to adhere to a specific schedule. Typically, our patients see results after around 10 days of application.
The Types of Stains That Teeth Whitening Can Address
Over time, your teeth can develop yellow, brown or orange discoloration from aging, drinking coffee or tea, or tobacco usage. As you’re probably already aware of, these stains can’t be tackled by simply brushing and flossing. With our professional take-home whitening kit, though, your teeth can be brightened by as much as eight shades.
However, there are some limitations to teeth whitening’s effectiveness. If your stains are the result of fluorosis, which is a condition that usually starts in childhood, then teeth whitening may not work for you. A better option may be to have porcelain veneers placed. After we assess your smile at your initial visit, we’ll let you know whether this is a route you should consider.
Caring for Your New Smile
Once you achieve the results you’ve always wanted with teeth whitening, the last thing you want is to lose them. Thus, it’s important to practice consistent oral hygiene, which should include brushing and flossing your teeth at least two times a day to keep any new stains at bay. It’s also a good idea to limit your consumption of tea, coffee, wine, dark sodas and berries, and to avoid smoking or chewing tobacco.
A final way to protect your gorgeous new smile is to maintain regular visits to our office for cleanings and checkups. By committing to following these simple steps, you’ll be able to enjoy a happier and more confident future!
