Frequently Asked Questions About Teeth Whitening
What happens during in-office teeth whitening treatment?
If you are receiving our in-office teeth whitening treatment, Dr. Sowell will begin the treatment by applying a protective covering over the lips and gums. It is important to keep the lips and gums protected to avoid complications. Dr. Sowell uses Zoom! in-office teeth whitening treatment to help patients achieve a whiter, brighter smile. Once the lips and gums are properly covered, Dr. Sowell will apply the bleaching agent to the teeth and place a special light on the teeth to activate the bleaching gel. In-office teeth whitening treatment usually takes about one hour to complete. Patients will notice results immediately after treatment.
Do you offer take-home teeth whitening treatments?
We do offer take-home teeth whitening treatment. Dr. Sowell can create custom-made teeth whitening trays that fit securely over your teeth. Patients will need to wear their whitening trays a few hours a day to generate the results they desire. If you want to learn more about our take-home teeth whitening, visit our Plano dental office.
How do I maintain my teeth whitening treatment?
Even if you receive in-office teeth whitening treatment, we can supply take-home teeth whitening trays for routine touchups. However, patients should make sure the brush their teeth twice a day and floss daily to maintain a bright, healthy smile. Patients should also try to avoid foods and beverages that can stain the tooth enamel.
