Is Teeth Whitening Right for Me?

In-office teeth whitening may be a great treatment option for patients who wish to quickly attain a brighter, whiter smile. Before you have professional teeth whitening, an experienced member of our team will make sure your teeth are healthy enough for this cosmetic procedure. We'll then listen to your concerns and goals before discussing your treatment options. Professional teeth whitening can produce fast, impressive results by reducing tooth discoloration deep within your natural tooth structure. Unlike store-bought whitening products, your professional teeth whitening treatment at our New Orleans, LA office will be customized based on your needs and goals.

How Does In-Office Whitening Work?

In-office whitening is a noninvasive procedure that doesn't typically require dental anesthesia. If you have dental anxiety or a powerful gag reflex, however, sedation options may be available. Your teeth will be cleaned and dried prior to the procedure so the whitening product can be evenly applied. Afterward, a protective barrier will be applied over your soft tissues, and your eyes will be shielded using special eyewear. A member of our New Orleans, LA dental team will paint a professional-strength gel onto your enamel and then position our advanced whitening light in front of your mouth. The combination of this gel and the light helps to break down stains within the tooth structure. Depending upon your current enamel shade and desired result, we may reapply the gel an additional 2 – 3 more times throughout the appointment. As soon as your treatment is finished, the remaining gel and protective gum barrier will be removed before your mouth is rinsed.

Maintain Your Teeth Whitening Results

Following your teeth whitening treatment, you'll be free to go about your regular daily activities unless sedation was used. However, you should avoid products that may stain your teeth (like lipstick, coffee, and tobacco products) for at least two days following your treatment. You may encounter sensitivity to cold and hot, but this should only last for about 3 – 5 days. To maintain your results, you should brush your teeth whenever possible after consuming dark-colored foods and drinks or using tobacco products. At home, you should follow a daily oral hygiene routine, including brushing and flossing, to help prevent new stains. Dental cleanings twice per year at our New Orleans, LA dental practice will also help to reduce new stains and keep your teeth bright. If you want to refresh your results over time, you may schedule a second professional whitening treatment or ask a MINT dentistry team member about home teeth whitening options.

Our entire MINT dentistry team is committed to helping you get the beautiful smile you desire. Ask us about our current specials, low-interest financing, or our MINT Discount Plan, which can make your oral health and cosmetic dentistry treatments easier to afford.
