What is the teeth whitening process?
If you’re not happy with the color of your teeth, the simplest, most cost-effective way to a better smile is with teeth whitening. When you visit your dentist for teeth whitening in Elma, NY, you will be amazed by how easy the process is.
First, your dentist will evaluate you to determine if you’re a good candidate for teeth whitening. People with healthy teeth and gums and a yellowish tone to their teeth respond best to teeth whitening. Also, children under 16 and pregnant women should avoid teeth whitening, as should those with allergies to whitening gel or those with front restorations that are discolored (teeth with artificial restorations do not whiten with the bleaching gel).
Next, your dentist will take impressions of your mouth to create custom-made bleaching trays for you. A dental lab will create the trays using precision technology. When you return to the dental office pick up your trays, your dentist will give you the professional bleaching gel along with instructions for home teeth whitening.
Take-Home Whitening Trays
You will use these bleaching trays at home each day for about 60 to 90 minutes. It typically takes about two weeks until you notice a brighter, whiter smile. If it sounds easy, that’s because it is! Call our office if you have any further questions or would like to schedule your appointment.
