Is In-Office Teeth Whitening Right for You?
Professional teeth whitening may be an excellent option for anyone who wants to instantly improve the color of their teeth. It is especially great for enhancing your aesthetic just before a big event, like a job interview, graduation, retirement party, wedding, or photoshoot. Prior to your in-office therapy, our team will perform a full dental screening to make sure your teeth are healthy enough for the treatment, and at this time, we can discuss your cosmetic concerns and goals. It's also important to know that while in-house teeth whitening will brighter your natural teeth, they will not change the color of dental fillings, crowns, or other restorations. In-house teeth whitening is best for improving yellow, discolored, or stained teeth that developed from:
- Poor oral hygiene
- Natural aging or genetics
- Drinking beverages, like red wine or coffee
- Eating foods that are prone to staining teeth
- Taking certain prescription drugs for medical conditions
- Habitually use of tobacco products
What Is the Treatment Process?
To start your in-office teeth whitening session, your teeth will be gently polished and dried before applying the Spa Dent Naturals solution. A protective covering will then be placed over your gums and specialized glasses will be used to shield your eyes during your treatment. A thin layer of professional-strength peroxide gel with be evenly distributed on the surface of your teeth, and an advanced LED light will be used to activate the solution. This process will also help break down stains and discoloration on the enamel. Depending on your current shade, these steps may be repeated 2 – 3 more times to achieve your preferred result. Once this is complete, we will remove the protective coverings and gel, then rinse your mouth thoroughly to eliminate any residual residue.
Following Your Teeth Whitening Visit
After your in-office teeth whitening session, you'll be free to get back to your day without skipping a beat. In fact, many of our patients schedule their therapy over their lunch hour because it is that easy. You may experience mild sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, but this will go away within a few days. To maintain your results, we do recommend that you avoid foods and drinks that are more likely to stain your teeth, such as dark fruit juices, wine, coffee, salsa, and tomato sauces. Keeping up with good oral hygiene habits, like daily brushing and flossing, is also encouraged to void off stains and discoloration. Biannual dental cleanings at ACE Dental of Bellmead will also assist in removing stubborn stains, and we can even incorporate an at-home whitening kit into your treatment to touch up your smile.
Is Teeth Whitening Covered by Insurance?
Cosmetic dental treatments aren't usually covered by most providers since they are considered an elective therapy. However, our finance team can sit down with you to discuss all your payment options and can provide you with information on medical financing. Our goal is to do what we can to help make your treatment more budget-friendly.
In-Office Teeth Whitening FAQ
Can I brush my teeth after in-office whitening?
After your in-office teeth whitening at our Bellmead, TX office, it is not recommended to brush your teeth right away. Your teeth will likely be more sensitive than normal for a few hours, so you'll likely want to wait until later in the day.
How long does it take to whiten teeth?
Teeth whitening can typically be completed in an hour or less. However, this will depend on a number of factors, including the current shade of your teeth. We will give you a better idea of how long it will take during your one-on-one consultation.
Will whitening my teeth damage my enamel?
In-office teeth whitening treatments are created using the highest quality products available. Our dental team strives to provide safe, effective treatments for all of our patients. We always do our best to ensure that your teeth will not become damaged when receiving any treatment, including teeth whitening.
