Who Is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

The vast majority of people who wish for a brighter smile are candidates for teeth whitening. Whether your dental stains are intrinsic (inside your teeth) or extrinsic (on the surface of the enamel), we may be able to help. Our services can get rid of stains caused by food, drink, tobacco use, and other sources of discoloration.

Of course, teeth whitening is not ideal for everyone. If you have untreated cavities or gum disease, you may need to wait until your smile is healthy before you pursue cosmetic treatment.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Teeth whitening kit for at-home use

Teeth whitening uses a powerful bleaching formula that penetrates the tooth enamel, where it breaks up unwanted pigment molecules in order to reveal a brighter smile. In our practice, we are proud to offer multiple whitening treatments: at-home whitening and Zoom! in-office whitening. When you visit us for your cosmetic consultation, we will recommend the one that we believe is best for you.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

A take-home teeth whitening kit is ideal for patients with sensitive teeth as well as those who prefer to spend as little time as possible in our office. You simply use the provided kit according to our instructions. You might notice results within just a few days, but optimum results typically take around two weeks.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

If you have a special event coming up, such as a wedding or job interview, you might not have time for a two-week teeth whitening course. In such cases, we recommend in-office Zoom! whitening. We apply a concentrated bleaching gel, use a special light to activate it, and help you achieve a significantly brighter smile in just one hour or so! This safe and effective method combines convenience with speed in the best way possible.

Tips for Maintaining Your Brighter Smile

After a whitening treatment, your teeth will still be vulnerable to new stains. To keep your smile as bright as possible, apply these tips:

  • Stick to a thorough daily oral hygiene routine.
  • Minimize your consumption of highly pigmented foods and beverages, such as coffee, tea, and berries.
  • Visit us twice a year for a professional cleaning and checkup.
  • Do not use tobacco products.
  • Eat white dairy products to promote strong and bright teeth.
  • Periodically visit us for touch-up whitening treatments.
