What are my whitening options?
When it comes to getting a brighter smile, you definitely have options. Some patients that are only dealing with minor dullness may be able to find ideal results through simple commercial whitening kits. Of course, if your stains are a little stubborn or darker then it may take professional treatment to truly give you the results you want.
In this case, you can talk to your Fairfield, CT, cosmetic dentist about getting in-office or at-home whitening. During your consultation, Dr. Worthington will help you determine the option that’s right for you. Those who want to get fast results for an important occasion may be better suited to in-office whitening while those who aren’t in a rush and would prefer the convenience of whitening at home should opt for our take-home kit.
What goes into getting professional in-office whitening?
When you sit down in our dental chair, the first thing we will do is clean your teeth to remove plaque and tartar buildup. From there, we will place a dental dam into the mouth to protect the gum tissue and lips from coming into contact with the bleaching gel. Then the whitening gel is painted onto the front of your teeth, where it will sit for about 10-15 minutes. Sometimes a light is directed over the teeth to activate the gel and speed up the whitening process. In as little as one hour, in-office whitening can get teeth several shades whiter.
Who is a good candidate for professional teeth whitening?
Most healthy individuals who are looking to get a more radiant smile can benefit from professional teeth whitening. If you really want whiter results for a special occasion like a wedding or job interview, in-office whitening will give you the quick, visible results you need. Of course, we will first need to examine your teeth to make sure they are healthy enough for treatment.
The stains that respond best to teeth whitening are external stains, which are caused by aging, foods and drinks. Stains caused by smoking may also respond to whitening but it may take more than one session to get optimal results. Some internal stains may respond to whitening treatment but you may want to consider other cosmetic dentistry options to completely cover and hide these deep-set stains.
