Is In-Office Teeth Whitening Right for You?
Patients who are looking for a fast, convenient way to lighten yellow, stained, or discolored teeth may be good candidates for in-office teeth whitening. A number of Hewitt, TX patients even choose to brighten their smiles before major life events, like weddings and reunions. Our dentists will listen to your goals and concerns and examine your teeth to determine if whitening might be ideal for you. It is important to understand that while this service can whiten natural tooth enamel, it will not change the color of fillings, bonding, crowns, or other restorations. In-office teeth whitening may help lighten teeth discolored by:
- Tobacco products
- Red wine, tea, coffee, fruit juices, or colas
- Tomatoes, berries, or other foods
- Spices, like chili powder or curry
- Some health conditions or medications
- The aging process
What Is the Treatment Process?
Before getting started, we will polish and dry your teeth so the whitening gel can be applied evenly to your enamel. We will give you a special pair of glasses to wear and place a protective barrier over your gums. After painting a layer of professional-strength peroxide gel onto your teeth, our team will position a LED whitening lamp in front of your mouth. The light will activate the gel, which will then work to dissolve stains within the tooth structure. Once 15 minutes have passed, the gel will be removed and reapplied. This process might be repeated 2 – 3 more times, depending on your desired results. At the end of your whitening treatment, we will remove the gel and soft tissue barriers and rinse your mouth thoroughly.
Following Your Teeth Whitening Visit
In general, you can get back to your normal daily routine after your in-office teeth whitening visit. We do suggest avoiding coffee, tobacco, and other products that could stain your teeth for at least 48 hours after your treatment. Some patients experience sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, but this generally resolves within a few days. You can help maintain your results by brushing right after eating or drinking items that could leave behind stains and keeping up with good oral hygiene each day. Attending routine dental cleanings at ACE Dental of Hewitt can also help minimize stain accumulation on your teeth. Please talk with our team about a home teeth whitening kit if you wish to touch up your whitening results every now and then.
Is Teeth Whitening Covered by Insurance?
Teeth whitening treatments are regarded as cosmetic dentistry procedures and as such, are typically not covered by dental insurance. At your consultation, we can go over your treatment options and discuss the affordable payment methods accepted at ACE Dental of Hewitt. A member of our team can also assist you in exploring low-interest financing solutions or creating a payment plan around your personal budget.
