Many people are satisfied with the sparkle they get from brushing twice daily with fluoride toothpaste, flossing once a day, and getting regular cleanings at the dentist’s office. However, if you decide you would like to go beyond regular care to make your smile look brighter, we offer several options to help make sure your smile is as bright as possible.
Professional in-office teeth whitening as well as follow-up home whitening can be an obvious and cost-effective way to transform your smile to its brightest. Glance Dental offers several options for teeth whitening.
Teeth Whitening is typically not covered by dental insurance. The cost of whitening may vary based on the whitening system used, as well as any specials or promotions for the service. Professional whitening services are offered at Glance Dental and our staff is happy to answer any questions you may have about professional teeth whitening.
The 48 hours following professional teeth whitening are critical in making sure your smile stays as bright as possible. During this period, your teeth will be more porous and susceptible to staining, acids, and sugars. Your dentist will provide you with post-procedure instructions at your visits. They may include instructions to avoid the following for at least 48 hours:
If your teeth feel more sensitive following the whitening procedure, contact your dentist. This sensitivity is normal and typically goes away shortly after the procedure.
Keeping a great at-home oral hygiene routine that includes brushing for 2 minutes twice a day, flossing each day, and visiting your dentist for regular checkups and cleaning visits is the best possible way to keep your smile as white and bright as possible.
