Dental Whitening


If you're looking for a more permanent solution when it comes to whitening your smile, a professional dental whitening service may be the way to go. Learn about the different types of services available and what is recommended for long-lasting results.

Understand How Teeth Whitening Works.

Professional whitening is more effective because it uses stronger bleaching agents than products available over the counter. This helps to penetrate deeper into the enamel and dentin layers of your teeth in order to remove stains as well as tooth discoloration caused by aging, smoking, or certain medications. Whitening services also typically involve a custom-made tray and treatment plan formulated by a dental professional for best results.

Learn About Different Whitening Treatments.

Professional whitening treatments come in a variety of forms. Your options include dentist-administered in-office treatments, take-home trays, as well as over-the-counter whitening products. It’s important to research each option and discuss it with your dentist before making a decision. In addition to the type of treatment, you should consider the cost, convenience, and desired results when selecting a whitening option.

Ask About Cost and Results.

Professional whitening treatments aren’t always cheap. Many services will require multiple visits and the cost can add up quickly. However, it is important that you communicate your desired results to your dentist so that they can develop the most fitting plan for your budget and needs. Let them know how you want your teeth to look after the treatment and if you’re looking for a long-term solution or a more short-term fix. Your dentist may also be able to provide advice on ways to maintain whiter teeth in between treatments as well as discuss any potential side-effects of treatment.

Check the Credentials of Your Dentist or Hygienist.

Booking a treatment with a qualified and experienced practitioner is important to ensuring that you receive the best service possible. Ask your preferred provider what qualifications they are held and if they have had any specialist training in teeth whitening techniques. Many states also require practitioners to be licensed, so make sure you ask them for their license details if needed. Finally, get some reviews from previous customers of your provider - testimonials speak volumes about the skill and experience of a practitioner!

Consider Maintenance and Care After Whitening Treatment.

After your professional whitening treatment, you’ll need to invest in proper care and maintenance to protect ongoing whitening results. Your practitioner can provide advice on the best oral hygiene practices to follow, as well as products to use after a whitening treatment. Good oral hygiene should help keep teeth white for longer, so be sure to brush twice daily, floss regularly and use mouthwash after every meal.
