Nothing brightens up a smile like teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is an excellent option for people whose teeth are mildly discolored, but it’s a useful aesthetic tool for anyone looking to enhance their smile. Even if your teeth aren’t noticeably discolored, a whitening can make your smile stand out and look even better than usual!
Who Is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?
Most adults who are looking for a simple way to give their smile a boost are good candidates for teeth whitening. However, certain types of whitening may not be the best fit for everyone!
If you fall into one of the following categories, it’s a good idea to ask your dentist about possible alternatives to teeth whitening:
- Patients who are younger than 16.
- Patients who have many dental restorations like crowns, implants, or bridges.
- Patients who already have very sensitive teeth.
- Patients with severe tooth decay, cavities, or exposed dental roots.
- Patients who are primarily interested in whitening one or two specific teeth.
What Is the Teeth Whitening Process?
Like any dental procedure, the first step is to speak to your dentist. They will be able to answer any questions you have, and will make sure teeth whitening is the best choice for you.
We offer whitening take-home kits, so you’ll be able to whiten your teeth on your own schedule and in your own home. Your dentist will make sure you thoroughly understand every part of the whitening procedure before you begin.
Your take home kit will include custom dental trays that fit over your teeth, and a whitening solution that goes inside those trays. Once the solution has been put into those trays, you’ll wear the trays over your teeth for the amount of time your dentist recommends.
You can expect to see visibly whiter teeth soon!
