Who is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Of course, the ideal teeth whitening candidate is someone with stubborn tooth stains. This sort of person has a grin that won’t whiten from standard oral care. As such, they’re pretty likely to experience boosts in self-esteem and confidence after treatment. That’s only natural – they’ll feel less anxious about their teeth and form better relationships in personal and professional settings.

All that said, remember that teeth whitening isn’t practical for every tooth stain. It typically works best on extrinsic ones caused by food and smoking. (This reality stems from how treatment bleaches stains found on your enamel.) Meanwhile, the whitening process isn’t great at erasing intrinsic stains beneath your enamel. You may want alternative options for this latter discoloration.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

At Tylan Creek Family Dentistry, we provide two types of teeth whitening: take-home bleaching kits and in-office treatment. While they rely on different methods, they both use the Zoom! Whitening system for excellent results. That means you can trust either option to meet your unique smile needs. As for which better suits you, find out by considering the features below:

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Take-home bleaching kits (per their name) let you conveniently whiten your smile at home. In particular, they work by having you wear gel-infused trays for a few hours daily. This process continues for roughly two weeks, making your enamel six, eight, or even ten shades brighter!

Aside from schedule flexibility, the biggest perk of bleaching kits is their low price. Still, keep in mind that these ones differ from those sold in stores. Only kits approved by dentists are genuinely effective.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

Unlike bleaching kits, in-office teeth whitening requires an actual dental visit. (This appointment lets our dentists apply a special gel to your enamel.) Consequently, it only takes an hour and saves you the hassle of multi-week efforts. The best part is that this quickness doesn’t sacrifice safety or quality. At the end of treatment, you’ll get truly dazzling results.

In exchange for its speed, in-office whitening is pricier than a take-home kit. Still, the former’s fast effects make it ideal when preparing for special events on short notice.
