Bleaching your teeth is an easy procedure that you can do at home, but make sure to check with your Lakeview dentist to see it is safe for you. At Family Dental Care, we care about your health; here are a few answers to common questions about teeth whitening.

How is it Done?

At Family Dental Care, the process is easy, we first take an impression to make a specialized mouthguard that will hold the bleach against your teeth. After the mouthguard is created, the rest of the process is done at home. The bleach should be used each night for about three to four hours and used no longer than two weeks.

What are the Key Benefits?

Whitening your teeth is a near-permanent solution for restoring brightness and keeping a smile alive. Using the mouthguard will correct brown, yellow and mottled tooth stains. Beyond improving the look of your smile, professional teeth whitening is low cost and you will immediately see results. Although some younger individuals teeth are somewhat resilient to this procedure, it is safe to use on all ages.

Is Teeth Whitening Safe for You?

Over a decade of research has proven that professional bleaching is both safe and effective. One thing to consider before you use bleaching is if you experience tooth sensitivity. If you do, you should use the tray for a shorter period of time and take longer breaks between whitening your teeth.

Teeth whitening is also discouraged for pregnant or breastfeeding women as well as individuals with gum disease. If you have tooth-colored crowns, caps or other dental work in your front teeth bleaching will not work for you.
