Is Teeth Whitening Right for You?
You may be a good candidate for home teeth whitening if you have teeth that are yellow, stained, or discolored from foods or beverages (like berries, coffee, or tea), tobacco use, age, certain medications, or illnesses. With this treatment option, you have the freedom and convenience to whiten your teeth at home at a time most convenient for you. Home teeth whitening from our Hewitt, TX team may be utilized as a single service or to further boost results after in-office whitening. It is important to know that teeth whitening can lighten natural enamel, but it will not change the appearance of crowns, fillings, or other restorations. Please speak with our dentists to explore other cosmetic options if you have this concern.
The Home Teeth Whitening Process
To help you decide if teeth whitening is ideal for your smile, we will assess your overall dental health. Impressions of your teeth may then be taken, from which a set of custom teeth whitening trays will be made. These mouth trays are fabricated from a clear, smooth material and will be crafted to fit comfortably over your top and bottom teeth to help hold the whitening gel in place. Since these trays are customized, treatment results are generally more effective than over-the-counter options. Once they are ready, we will have you try in your trays. Instructions for use will be provided according to the type of gel dispensed and may involve using your kit during the day or at night for 2 – 14 days.
Maintaining Your Results
The results of teeth whitening will vary according to your initial enamel shade, gel strength, and whitening frequency. To help preserve your treatment results, we recommend that you maintain good oral hygiene each day and avoid products that may stain your teeth. Visiting ACE Dental of Hewitt for routine dental cleanings gives our team a chance to polish away surface stains, which can also help keep your teeth looking bright. It is also a good idea to store your whitening trays and gel in a cool, dry place in the event you choose to boost your teeth whitening results in the future.
Does Insurance Cover Teeth Whitening?
Since teeth whitening is an aesthetic and elective treatment, it is typically not covered under dental insurance benefits. Even still, we want you to achieve your very best smile and may run special teeth whitening offers at certain times. Talk with our team at ACE Dental of Hewitt to explore affordable payment options or to receive assistance applying for special dental financing.
Home Teeth Whitening FAQ
??How long do home teeth whitening results last?
Professional at-home teeth whitening treatments are a great option because the results will last for several months. If you use the at-home teeth whitening kits offered by ACE Dental in combination with our in-office whitening options, you can maintain your results for longer. A few things we suggest you do in order to help your results last as long as possible include:
Avoid drinks like coffee, tea, and red wine that stain the teeth
Maintain regular dental visits
Have a good at-home cleaning routine
Are home teeth whitening trays hard to use?
The custom whitening trays our Hewitt, TX patients use are pretty simple and will provide noticeable results after a week or two.
Do home teeth whitening kits work on veneers or dentures?
Both professional whitening and store-bought teeth whitening kits are designed to treat enamel. Even though dentures are created to look like natural enamel, they are not, and therefore they don't often respond to teeth whitening. We suggest you whiten your teeth prior to receiving dentures or veneers.
