What to Expect
Before any at-home whitening treatment regimen is designed, your dentist will conduct a thorough examination to assess your oral health, especially the strength of the dental enamel, to ensure teeth whitening is safe for you. If your dentist determines you are a good candidate, they will go over the different whitening options available. If home whitening is chosen, the dentist will create custom whitening trays using molds of your teeth. In the kit, the dentist will include teeth bleaching gel and the trays and thoroughly go over instructions to ensure your safety and satisfaction. The length of treatment time will vary depending on the condition of your teeth.
Once the patient reaches their teeth whitening goal, he or she should stop using the home whitening kit to avoid damage to the teeth and gums. With a good at-home oral care routine, along with regular dental cleanings, the results from home whitening kits should last for several years. During dental visits, patients should talk to their dentist about the best home products to use to extend their whitening through toothpaste, floss, mouthwash, and other treatments. To avoid the appearance of new stains, patients should limit certain foods and drinks, such as red wines, berries, teas, coffees, sodas, and any others that commonly stain the teeth.
Since home teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure, it is usually not covered by dental insurance. However, you can call and check with your carrier ahead of time to confirm whether or not the treatment would be covered. Our office offers payment and financing options for patients who are paying out-of-pocket for home teeth whitening treatments.
