Teeth whitening is the most common cosmetic treatment in the US, and just about anyone can get teeth whitening as long as their teeth and gums are healthy. Get in touch now to see if you’re a good candidate!
To begin the process, you’ll need to get a quick consultation with Dr. Kevin Degroot to make sure you’re a good candidate for teeth whitening. If you are, he will take molds and images of your teeth, and send these to a dental lab where a set of custom-built whitening trays will be made for your teeth.
When your custom whitening trays arrive at Lakeview Modern Dentistry, you’ll come in for another quick appointment with Dr. DeGroot. He’ll give you your trays, a set of whitening products, and tips and instructions on how to use them. Then, you’ll be sent home to whiten your teeth.
The exact treatment process can differ depending on your situation. But for the most part, you’ll whiten your teeth for about an hour a day whenever it’s convenient for you to do so, and the entire process will take several weeks.
Once your treatment is complete, you’ll enjoy a picture-perfect smile that will last for years to come. Best of all, your whitening trays are reusable if you need to get a touch-up in the future.
There are a lot of different steps you can take to maintain your new, bright smile after teeth whitening treatment at Lakeview Modern Dentistry. Most importantly, you need to continue to brush and floss regularly, and see Dr. DeGroot for checkups every six months. This helps keep your mouth healthy and also prevents the buildup of plaque and tartar, which can contribute to staining.
You can also incorporate whitening toothpaste and mouthwash with peroxide into your dental routine. This can help control and reduce the buildup of stains between whitening treatments, keeping your smile bright longer.
In addition, you may want to cut back on your consumption of beverages like wine, tea, coffee, cola, and other drinks that can stain your teeth. When you do drink them, consider using a straw. This helps minimize contact with your teeth and can reduce the likelihood of developing further stains.
If you smoke or use tobacco, you should quit right away. Tobacco use is detrimental to your oral health and overall health, and will also stain your teeth again very quickly.
