Best Candidates for Teeth Whitening
If you want to brighten your teeth in the comfort and convenience of your own home, Dr. Porter may suggest a personalized teeth whitening kit. Your teeth may look dull or have dark and yellow stains that have built up over time. You might have attempted over-the-counter whitening products, but found them uncomfortable, ineffective, or harmful to your teeth. At Robert L. Porter Dentistry, the strength of the whitening treatment is customized to suit your own needs and goals, therefore it's an excellent option if you have sensitive teeth.
What to Expect from Home Teeth Whitening
The home teeth whitening kit will be created by Dr. Porter with a whitening product and custom fitted trays. Before making your whitening kit, Dr. Porter will perform a comprehensive evaluation of your enamel and dental health in order to choose the best whitening potency and formulation. For your home whitening kit, Dr. Porter will take impressions of your teeth so custom trays can be made. During your delivery appointment Dr. Porter will go over the instructions required for every treatment, including how long and how frequently to use the whitening gel.
Follow-Up for Home Teeth Whitening
Your results will depend on the strength of the bleaching gel, your starting tooth color, and how often you apply your whitening gel. Once you achieve your desired shade, you can quit using your home treatments. To maintain your results, you need to keep an excellent oral hygiene regimen and implement lifestyle changes, such as avoiding staining foods, drinks, and tobacco products. Also, you should schedule twice yearly professional cleanings and exams at Robert L. Porter Dentistry so stains can be polished and Dr. Porter can review your general dental health. You should keep your whitening trays clean and in a secure place, so in the event that you want to resume your whitening treatment, you just have to buy more bleaching gel.
Insurance Coverage for Teeth Whitening
At-home teeth whitening is an aesthetic treatment, so it's typically not covered by dental insurance. During your consultation, we will discuss the fees based on your treatment choices, go over payment methods we take, and provide information on available dental financing.
