Brightening the color of your teeth can help your enamel appear younger, healthier, and multiple shades brighter. But not all teeth whitening treatments are created equal! If you’re one of our Werribee patients that’s considering bleaching your teeth, here’s what you need to know:
Use a Professional Grade Product
Professional grade whitening products are more concentrated than anything you can purchase over the counter at the supermarket. As such, they’re able to work more efficiently and lift deeper stains inside of your enamel. Buying multiple kits at the store won’t get you the same results, but it will cost you more money! Our in-office and customized take home kits can help you get closer to the level of whiteness that you’re looking for.
A generic tray that’s not fitted to your unique smile can make it impossible for whitening product to evenly coat all of your tooth surfaces. At Wyndham Dental, we make customized trays that keep the gel right up against your teeth. Or, you can opt to have a same day application performed here in our office, where the solution is applied by hand and results are achieved in as little time as possible.
Maintenance is Important
Exposing your teeth to heavily staining products like coffee, tea, tobacco, or red wine can make them accumulate new stain. It’s important to touch up your whitening as directed and schedule a routine clean with us at least every six months.
Treat Underlying Conditions
If you have existing dental infections like gum disease or an abscessed tooth, it’s important to address those first. Applying a whitening gel to an infected area could cause pain or damage.
