Who is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

If you are someone who wants a brighter smile because you’re unhappy with the stains and discoloration on your teeth, there is a good chance you’ll be considered a good candidate for treatment. While tooth stains can form for many reasons (i.e., dark-colored beverages and foods, genetics, certain medications, fluorosis, etc.), professional systems are the only way to eliminate deep, set-in stains that exist beneath the enamel.

But before we give you the green light for treatment, we’ll first need to evaluate your oral health to determine if any decay, cavities, or signs of gum disease currently exist. If so, you can expect that we will formulate a plan to address these issues before administering any kind of teeth whitening treatment.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

At-home teeth whitening system

At My Dentist Midtown, we offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening. Using high-grade whitening gel in both instances, the solution targets stains and discoloration, effectively eliminating them so that teeth appear brighter than before.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

We are pleased to use the Opalescence system for our take-home whitening kits. These consist of custom-made trays that are crafted from your impressions as well as a powerful bleaching gel that penetrates the enamel when applied to teeth. You’ll be required to wear the trays a certain amount of time each day so that your pearly whites become brighter each day until you see noticeably dramatic results in two weeks.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

If you prefer to leave the whitening process to our professionals, you can undergo in-office teeth whitening with ZOOM! Applying the bleaching gel directly to your teeth, we’ll use a specialized light to activate the solution. In no time, it will begin to remove stains and leave your teeth looking brighter and more beautiful in about one hour.

Tips for Maintaining Your Brighter Smile

To ensure that your newer, brighter smile looks its best for as long as possible, you’ll need to make sure that you adopt a good oral hygiene routine of brushing, flossing, and rinsing as well as continue to see our team for six-month dental checkups and cleanings. You’ll also find it helpful to give up unhealthy habits like smoking to keep from staining your teeth and limit your consumption of coffee, tea, and other dark-colored beverages.
