Who is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Woman smiling at dentist during dental examDr. Chenet and our staff are well-versed in the latest teeth whitening methods and can remove stains caused by a variety of factors, including coffee, tobacco, medications, and aging. With that said, we do need to conduct a thorough exam during your consultation to determine if you’re a good candidate for professional teeth whitening. The good news is that even if you aren’t at first, your smile goals won’t be out of reach. For example, if you need a cavity or two treated first, we can incorporate the necessary care into your treatment plan. If the stains are permanent, then we can explore the other cosmetic dental services available, like veneers.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Some patients prefer the convenience of Zoom!, while others prefer a more gradual approach and the financial savings of take-home trays. We offer several brands and methods of teeth whitening, and we will recommend the system that best suits your lifestyle, budget, and the types of stains you have.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Take-home whitening involves custom-made trays that you wear in the comfort of your own home. Unlike over-the-counter trays and strips, these trays will be form-fitted to ensure consistent and safe results. The bleaching solution we provide contains a lower concentration of peroxide (bleaching agent) than the Zoom! formula but a higher concentration than drugstore whiteners. In just a couple of weeks, take-home whitening can lighten your teeth up to eight shades.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

Zoom! Whitening is a simple, one-visit procedure that lightens teeth up to eight shades. With Zoom!, we apply a bleaching gel to your teeth and activate it with a no-heat lamp. Relax and listen to music or watch TV, and in about an hour, you can enjoy a bright, stain-free smile.

Tips for Maintaining Your Brighter Smile
