Home Teeth Whitening Overview
There are several over-the-counter options for whitening your teeth at home, but they do not always deliver what they promise and you can end up wasting your time and money. At Dental Health, we provide professional-strength teeth whitening kits that can be done at home. At-home teeth whitening kits from our board-certified Dental Health team are a safe and effective procedure to conveniently brighten your smile and erase stains. Our Dental Health team creates your home whitening kit to fit your needs and goals so you get your best results. Your kit will include mouth trays that make the whitening process more comfortable. If you are interested in enhancing your smile with a professional home teeth whitening kit, contact our office in Brattleboro, VT to schedule a consultation.
Best Candidates for Home Teeth Whitening
If you want to brighten your smile in the comfort and convenience of your own home, our team may recommend a customized teeth whitening kit. Your teeth may look dull or have yellow and dark stains that have accumulated over time. You may have tried over-the-counter whitening products, but found them ineffective, uncomfortable, or damaging to your teeth. At Dental Health, the strength of the whitening solution is customized to your needs and goals, so it is a great option for sensitive teeth. A home teeth whitening kit may be used alone or after an in-office whitening treatment to maintain your results.
What to Expect with Home Teeth Whitening
Your at-home whitening kit will be put together by the Dental Health team with teeth bleaching gel and mouth trays. Prior to making your home whitening kit, we will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and oral health in order to select the best whitening strength and formula. For your teeth whitening trays, you can choose to have impressions taken of your teeth so custom trays can be made, but it will take longer to get them. Meanwhile, we offer professional mouth trays that can be used immediately. Once your kit is ready, the Dental Health team will go over the specific instructions required for each treatment, including how long and how often to use the whitening gel.
Home Teeth Whitening Follow-Up
Your results will depend on the strength of the whitening solution, your initial enamel color, and how often you use your whitening treatment. Once you achieve your desired shade, you can stop using your at-home kit. To maintain your results, you should keep a good oral hygiene routine and make lifestyle changes, including avoiding staining foods, beverages, and tobacco products. Furthermore, you should schedule bi-annual cleanings at Dental Health where stains can be polished away, and annual dental exams so our team can check on your overall oral health. You should keep your mouth trays clean and in a safe place, so if you want to restart your whitening treatment, you would only need to purchase more whitening gel.
Home Teeth Whitening Insurance Coverage
At-home teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure, which means it is typically not covered by dental insurance. During your consultation, we can talk about your cost estimates based on your treatment options, go over payment methods we accept, and provide information on low-interest medical financing.
