How At-Home Teeth Whitening Works

The first step to receive your at-home teeth whitening kit is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Ryan or Dr. Steven. They will sit down with you to discuss what you hope to achieve by having your teeth whitened. After examining your teeth to determine if you are a good candidate for teeth whitening, we will take impressions of your teeth. This will allow lab technicians to customize your whitening trays so that they fit securely and comfortably.

Once they are ready, we will provide you with your custom trays as well as the Opalescence professional-grade bleaching gel that is much stronger than what you will find in products at your local drug store. Following the instructions provided by your cosmetic dentist in Lincoln, you will take your kit home and use it daily. In two weeks, you’ll not only notice that stains are disappearing, but your smile is 6-8 shades brighter!

Who is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is a great cosmetic solution for most people. The best candidates are those who have good gum health and do not have any restorations already existing in their mouth. The reason is that artificial teeth are undeterred by teeth whitening, so it’s highly possible that after having your teeth whitened, they may not match in color, making your restoration stand out more clearly.

If you can say “yes” to the following, you may be considered a viable candidate for teeth whitening:

  • You are not pregnant
  • You have no restorations (i.e. fillings, crowns, implants)
  • You’re free of gum disease, tooth decay, or cavities
  • You do not have sensitive teeth
  • You expect realistic results

How to Maintain Results

Maintaining your results is key when choosing to whiten your teeth. It’s often far too easy to fall back into old habits and let those stains begin to creep back in. To prevent this, here are a few ways to keep your teeth looking whiter and brighter for longer:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes
  • Make sure to use a soft-bristled brush
  • Floss at least once a day to remove bacteria from in-between your teeth
  • Rinse with an antimicrobial mouthwash
  • Avoid dark-colored, stain-causing foods and beverages (i.e. coffee, tea, soda)
  • Wear a mouthguard if you are prone to grinding your teeth
  • Keep your regular dental appointments every six months
