What Should I Expect from a Teeth Whitening Treatment?
A Teeth Whitening treatment typically requires only a single office visit, and you can expect to return home the same day. Your gums will be covered to ensure that the whitening solution only works on the areas it’s supposed to. Your teeth may become sensitive for a couple of days following the cleaning, but it should go away with time. Properly rinsing out your mouth after the treatment is also encouraged to get rid of any excess solution that could irritate the gums. Acidic food and drink like sour candy and coffee should be avoided for a few days after the procedure has been completed.
The effects of the treatment will fade with time, but how long it takes largely depends on how much a patient avoids indulging in teeth staining habits. Making sure that you brush and floss regularly will also extend the results.
Why an In-Office Teeth Whitening Treatment?
When you self-administer a treatment to an area as small as your teeth, it can be hard to get a look at every part that needs cleaning. Our professionals are equipped with mouth mirrors and other visibility enhancing tools that help to reveal all of the stained areas, making sure that no tooth gets looked over.
Am I a Candidate For Teeth Whitening?
Teeth Whitening is a non-surgical and simple process that most healthy patients will be qualified for. However, a definite answer to this question will be given during the consultation before the treatment. During this consultation, a member of our practice will have a conversation with you regarding your cosmetic goals and medical history. The practitioner will discuss alternatives if it turns out that our Teeth Whitening treatment isn’t right for you.
