Am I a Good Candidate For Professional Teeth Whitening?
Your teeth and gums must be in good health before receiving teeth whitening treatment. Patients who suffer from gum disease or tooth decay need to have these conditions treated before teeth whitening.
It is typically not recommended for anyone under the age of 16 to receive teeth whitening.
Those who have extremely sensitive teeth may not be recommended for teeth whitening as the whitening gel can sometimes worsen tooth sensitivity.
If you have dental restorations such as crowns, veneers, or dental bridges, you may not be a good candidate for teeth whitening. Though treatment would whiten your natural teeth, your restorations would not be affected, causing your smile to become unbalanced.
Professional teeth whitening is effective at removing surface stains. Deeper stains may not be lifted through whitening alone. Our dentist will review your teeth and aesthetic goals during your consultation to determine if teeth whitening will be enough, or if another cosmetic dental treatment like veneers would better suit your needs.
We Offer Two Types of Professional Whitening In-Office and Take-Home Options Available
This treatment is done at our Kailua-Kona office and supervised by Garrett Oka, DDS. This option typically requires only one appointment and is a great choice for patients who want whiter teeth as quickly as possible. During your appointment, our dentist will apply a whitening gel to the surface of your teeth. This gel is then activated with UV light. The bleaching gel breaks down the surface stains, revealing a naturally whiter smile.
Though take-home kits are another effective way to whiten your teeth, you will play a big role in ensuring the best possible results. First, a mold of your teeth will be taken at our Kailua-Kona dental practice so we can create custom mouth trays for you. At home, you will fill the trays with whitening gel and position the trays over your teeth. The trays should be worn for about an hour at a time. Several weeks may be needed to achieve your desired results.
Are There Any Side Effects To Teeth Whitening?
When performed by a trained dentist, there are virtually no risks or side effects to teeth whitening. Some patients may experience mild tooth sensitivity following the procedure; however, this should only be temporary, and any sensitivity can be managed with a toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth.
Address All of Your Cosmetic Dental Concerns in a Customized Smile Makeover Plan
Veneers are thin porcelain shells that fit over your tooth to conceal chips, gaps, stains, and minor misalignment. Many patients like to whiten their natural teeth before placement so they can receive a whiter color of veneer. The result is a brighter, more beautiful smile.
ClearCorrect® are clear aligners used to gently move your teeth into alignment. These clear aligners are a great way to enhance your smile by correcting gapped, overcrowded, and crooked teeth. If you struggle with misalignment, ClearCorrect could be the first step toward enhancing your smile. After treatment, whitening can illuminate your symmetrical and attractive new smile.
Dental bonding is another way to correct minor dental flaws like chipped teeth. It is a more cost-effective alternative to porcelain veneers that has a similar effect. A tooth-colored resin is applied to the affected tooth to hide imperfections and give your smile a healthy and complete look. Whiten first for a smile that looks better than ever!
