Best Candidates for Home Teeth Whitening
Whitening your teeth from the comfort of home allows you to reach your smile goals on your own time and when it is most convenient to your lifestyle. Our professional home teeth whitening kits are customized for each individual and may be ideal for adults and teenagers who have healthy teeth and gums. Teeth whitening from Made Ya Smile Dental West 8 is often more effective than the drugstore variety of home whitening products. If your teeth have become yellow, dull, or stained over time due to the aging process, tobacco use, tea, coffee, red wine, or other causes, a personalized consultation with Dr. Jamali can help you learn if home teeth whitening is a good choice for your cosmetic needs. Home teeth whitening trays and prescription whitening gels are customized to match your personal oral health characteristics and may allow you to lighten your teeth by several shades. One of the greatest benefits of home whitening is that you can whiten when you want and until you reach the shade of brightness you find most appealing for your smile.
What to Expect with Home Teeth Whitening
To learn more about your cosmetic goals and oral health needs, Dr. Jamali will first examine your teeth and gums and talk with you about how you would like your smile to look. We may recommend that you have our hygiene team provide a professional teeth cleaning before you start whitening your teeth to generate the best possible results. Plaque and tartar accumulation on the teeth may prevent an even application and outcome for your home whitening efforts. The strength of whitening solution chosen by Dr. Jamali will be based upon factors, like your starting shade, how often and at what time (day or night) you plan on whitening, and other oral considerations. Impressions of your upper and lower teeth will be taken so that our skilled team can make your custom mouth trays on-site. Your trays will be comfortable to wear and fabricated from a smooth, clear material to fit your teeth securely and provide the most favorable whitening outcome. Once our team has completed your mouth trays, we will have you try them on and give you specific instructions on how to wear them, how much gel to use, and the best method of cleaning and storing your whitening trays.
Home Teeth Whitening Follow-Up
Choosing professional take-home whitening solutions for your cosmetic needs may give you more control over your end results. If you achieve your desired shade after a few days, you can discontinue whitening at that time or whiten a few days longer until you reach the level of brightness you want. Teeth whitening results will differ among individual patients and are affected by how often the whitening gel is used, the initial shade of your enamel, and the strength of the whitening solution. You can help to maintain the results of your home whitening treatment by avoiding foods and drinks that tend to stain along with tobacco products, especially while you are undergoing the whitening process. Thorough home care with brushing and flossing each day combined with routine dental cleanings at Made Ya Smile Dental West 8 can also help to keep your smile looking its brightest. Our team always keeps extra tubes of whitening gel in stock here at our Houston, TX practice. If you feel you need a boost in your shade as time goes on, ask us about obtaining additional whitening gel. One of the best features about professional home whitening is that your trays will likely fit you for many years to come, unless you have changes to your dentition, such as tooth movement through braces or new restorations placed on your teeth.
Home Teeth Whitening Insurance Coverage
While home teeth whitening may be a great choice for enhancing the smile, this service is typically not covered by dental insurance. Our team at Made Ya Smile Dental West 8 accepts several easy payment methods and is happy to work with you to find a payment solution that matches your family's budget. Be sure to ask our friendly team about flexible, low-cost financing solutions to help you get the smile of your dreams.
