Am I a Candidate for Teeth Whitening?
You may be a good candidate for teeth whitening if you have teeth that have become dull, stained, or yellow. Over time, products like tobacco, coffee, tea, heavily pigmented foods and spices, and certain medications can darken tooth enamel. As a convenient cosmetic dentistry solution, home teeth whitening may be ideal for brightening the teeth gradually and when it works best for your busy lifestyle. Home teeth whitening may be used alone or after in-office whitening services to help achieve desired results. While teeth whitening can brighten natural tooth structure, it will not change the color of dental restorations, like crowns or fillings. Please talk with our team to explore other aesthetic options if this is a concern you have regarding your smile.
What Is the Treatment Process?
One of our dentists will examine your mouth to help you determine if home teeth whitening best meets your needs. To start the process, we will take impressions of your teeth, which will be used to make your custom whitening trays. These trays will be fabricated from a clear, smooth material and made to fit over your teeth securely to help keep the whitening gel in place. Once your whitening trays are made, we will try them in your mouth and explain how to fill, wear, and clean your appliances. Your professional home whitening kit may be used between 2 – 14 days and on a daily or nightly basis, depending on the strength of the whitening gel.
Maintaining Your Teeth Whitening Results
The results of your home teeth whitening treatment will vary according to the initial shade of your enamel, the frequency with which you utilize your kit, and the potency of the whitening gel. It is best to store your trays and gel in a safe place in case you wish to boost your whitening results at some point in the future. You can help maintain your whitening outcome by minimizing the consumption of items that may stain your teeth and following a good daily oral hygiene routine. During your dental cleanings at ACE Dental of Harker Heights, our team will also polish your teeth to diminish surface stains and help keep your smile bright.
Is Teeth Whitening an Insurance Benefit?
Since home teeth whitening is regarded as an elective cosmetic dentistry option, it is typically not a covered dental insurance benefit. However, we strive to help all patients get a smile that helps them look and feel their best. ACE Dental of Harker Heights is pleased to accept a selection of affordable payment solutions. Our team will be happy to review these options with you and can even assist you in applying for special patient financing.
