Teeth Whitening Q & A
What are the benefits of teeth whitening?
Professional teeth whitening treatments offered by a dental practice are stronger than anything you can purchase over-the-counter. Clinical-grade in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatments can:
- Provide even whitening results
- Prevent severe tooth sensitivity
- Remove tooth stains from deeper layers
- Minimize irritation to gums, lips, and inner cheeks
And of course, by whitening your teeth, you’re going to feel more confident every time you smile.
How long does a teeth whitening treatment take?
Madison Lakes Dental proudly offers both in-office and professional home whitening services. During an office whitening treatment, you lie back in the chair as your dental provider places a cheek retractor into your mouth and takes any other special measures to protect your delicate tissues.
After carefully applying the bleaching solution to your teeth one-by-one, your dentist may expose your teeth to an LED light to help the whitening gel activate and penetrate deeper. Depending on the severity of your tooth discoloration and how white you’d like your teeth, this entire service can take anywhere from 60-90 minutes.
For take-home professional whitening kits from Madison Lakes Dental, the team fits you for custom trays. You’re given clinical-strength whitening gel that you put into the trays each time you want to whiten.
Though the team personalizes your home whitening service, it’s common to need to wear your trays for about 30 minutes every day for a week or two, or until you reach your optimal shade of white.
How long will my teeth whitening treatment last?
Because professional whitening treatments from Madison Lakes Dental brighten your teeth from the deepest layer, you can experience optimal results that are entirely long-lasting. In many cases, whitening services last for at least a year or two before it’s time for a retreatment.
However, because your teeth are going to continue to age, which leads to natural discoloration, and foods and beverages can stain your teeth, the team at Madison Lakes Dental counsels you about how to help your teeth stay their whitest.
Using certain whitening treatments at home, having professional cleanings every six months, and making some changes in your diet (like minimizing coffee or red wine) can all help your teeth stay their whitest for as long as possible.
