Teeth whitening is one of the most affordable—and effective—cosmetic dentistry procedures around. In just one visit to your dentist’s office, your teeth can be several shades whiter and brighter. Nothing else improves your smile so much for so little!
Before you head to your Allentown, PA dentist for your teeth whitening procedure, let’s take a look at the steps involved in the process.
Step #1—Have Your Teeth Cleaned
To get the most out of your whitening treatment, you should schedule a professional dental cleaning. This will ensure that we will remove any surface stains and tartar that has accumulated.
Step #2—Preparation of Your Teeth
Discuss with your dentist exactly which teeth are to be whitened. Usually, the six or eight front-most teeth are whitened.
Next, your dentist will protect your gums and lips, so they are not impacted by the whitening procedure. You should have very little, if any, sensitivity after the procedure.
Step #3—The Whitening Gel Is Applied
The gel is generously painted onto the surface of the teeth to be whitened. It is usually left on the teeth for about 15 minutes, and the process is repeated a couple more times.
In about 45 minutes to one hour, we can complete the entire whitening process. You will be able to leave the dentist office with teeth that are much whiter than when you went in.
Ask about an at-home whitening kit so you can do touch-up treatments yourself periodically to keep your smile white. You should also avoid any lifestyle habits that may have contributed to staining, such as drinking coffee, tea, and red wine.
