Who is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Dental discoloration can happen for a variety of reasons, some preventable, like drinking stain-causing beverages like red wine and coffee every day, and some inevitable, like due to genetics. Our professional take-home teeth whitening kits have the ability to tackle deep-seated stains and surface stains of all kinds. However, we typically don’t recommend teeth whitening for those who have untreated gum disease, cavities, or highly sensitive teeth due to worn enamel. If you would like to learn whether you’re a good candidate for treatment, give our office a call today.

How Does Take-Home Teeth Whitening Work?

Opalescence Go is a leading brand of teeth whitening kit that’s certified gluten free and utilizes professional-grade hydrogen peroxide, fluoride, and potassium nitrate whitening gel for comfortable, safe, and highly effective results. No impressions are required for the pre-filled whitening trays, reducing any time you need to spend in our office and making utilizing the trays easy and fast.

We have two different types of strengths, including 15% hydrogen peroxide, which are worn for 15 to 20 minutes for between five and ten days, and 10% hydrogen peroxide, which are worn for 30 to 60 minutes for the same time period. All you need to do is unwrap the trays, put them in your mouth, and pop on your favorite show or podcast while your teeth are whitening.

Tips for Maintaining a Brighter Smile

Following your treatment, you’ll want to take some precautions to make sure your beautiful brighter smile remains that way. While we typically recommend getting touch-ups every six months or so, the more conscientious you are of preserving your results, the longer you’ll be able to enjoy them. Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your teeth whitening treatment:

  • Avoid bad oral habits like smoking and chewing tobacco.
  • Steer clear of stain-causing beverages like red wine and coffee.
  • Avoid eating foods that are tomato-based or can stain your teeth, like balsamic vinegar.
  • Maintain a good at-home dental hygiene routine by brushing twice a day for two minutes, flossing daily, and rinsing with antimicrobial mouthwash.
  • Visit your dentist every six months for checkups and cleanings.
