Who Is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is a great treatment for anyone who is unhappy with the color of their smile for one reason or another. There are plenty of ways that you could start to see your teeth yellow, either due to stains on their surface or changes to the structure of the tooth. In any case, professional teeth whitening can give you a smile up to eight shades brighter than it was before.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Teeth whitening is done by applying a specialized gel onto the teeth, one typically consisting of a hydrogen peroxide solution. This substance lifts stains from the surface of the enamel.

There are two varieties of teeth whitening: in-office and take-home. Both are capable of producing incredible results, and which one you choose ultimately comes down to your personal preference.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Take-home teeth whitening involves the use of customized trays that allow the even application of the whitening solution. Whitening gel is put into these trays and applied to the teeth, allowing for an even distribution across your smile. After about 2 weeks of consistent use, you’ll have a smile that you can take true pride in.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

In-office teeth whitening will be administered by us, allowing us to use a stronger whitening solution than in the case of take-home whitening. We will be able to carefully apply the whitening solution directly onto the teeth, allowing us to complete the treatment in just a single appointment.

Tips for Maintaining Your Brighter Smile

Once you’ve invested in teeth whitening, you’ll probably want to do what you can to make your brand-new smile stick around. First, you may want to avoid any foods and beverages that could potentially discolor the teeth, like coffee and red wine.

If you're embarrassed by stained teeth, a bright smile doesn't have to cost you an arm or a leg. Many factors affect the cost of teeth whitening, but your cosmetic dentist at Carlson Dental Group will create the personalized plan you need to refresh your smile without spending your life's savings. You can't put a price on the benefits you'll gain by investing in a white smile.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Teeth Whitening

No two mouths or situations are identical, so there's no flat fee for teeth whitening. Your cosmetic dentist will examine your mouth to create an effective strategy to resolve stains and discoloration. Although every case differs, you can expect your treatment to include:

  • Consultation: You'll require an initial consultation with a cosmetic dentist to ensure you're a candidate for teeth whitening. They'll make sure your teeth and gums are healthy while determining which treatments can benefit you.
  • Prep Work: It's not unusual to require a bit of prep work before undergoing teeth whitening, like a dental cleaning or gum disease therapy.
  • Type of Treatment: You have more than one option to reverse stains and discoloration.

Types of Teeth Whitening: What Do They Cost?

Your cosmetic dentist will review which solutions are right for you, like:

  • In-Office Whitening: Your teeth can get up to 8 shades right whiter in about 1 hour using an in-office whitening treatment. A special dental light is used for 15-minute intervals to activate the whitening ingredients to dissolve stains.
  • At-Home Teeth Whitening: Enjoy the convenience of an over-the-counter product and a professional in-office treatment with a take-home kit. Your dentist will give you everything you need to use for 2 weeks to get your smile noticeably brighter.

Inexpensive Teeth Whitening vs. Professional Teeth Whitening

Stop wasting money on inexpensive whitening products and toothpaste. Over-the-counter products do not contain professional-grade whitening ingredients, so any improvement is minimal and not long-lasting. Not to mention, not everyone is a candidate for teeth whitening, which can harm your dental health. Instead, invest in the experience and proven results of a cosmetic dentist. They'll get your smile its brightest using a safe, effective solution.
