The Take-Home Teeth Whitening Process

Consultation and fitting

To begin the process, you’ll need to come and see Dr. Eastwood for a consultation. If he approves you for teeth whitening, he will take impressions of your teeth. These molds will be sent to a dental lab, which will make a set of custom whitening trays to fit your teeth perfectly.

Picking up your trays

To start the procedure, Dr. Eastwood will numb the site, including the nerves of the treatment area, using a numbing needle. You may also opt to receive sedation to ensure you feel comfortable throughout the process.

Whitening your teeth

Most people whiten their teeth at home for about an hour a day, but the specifics of your treatment may vary. It usually takes about 2-3 weeks to see your maximum results.

Post-whitening care

You should maintain good oral hygiene and a healthy diet, and make sure to see Dr. Eastwood every six months for a teeth cleaning and oral exam. Dr. Eastwood can provide you with more instructions on how to keep your smile bright after teeth whitening.

More About Teeth Whitening

  • How Long Does Teeth Whitening Last?

    The results of your whitening treatment will usually last 1-2 years. Proper oral hygiene is essential for maximizing the lifespan of teeth whitening, as mentioned. Preventing the buildup of plaque, tartar, and stains will ensure your smile looks its best.

    You can also take some other steps to keep your teeth bright, like reducing your intake of wine, coffee, or tea, or using a straw when drinking these beverages. Using whitening toothpaste and/or mouthwash can also help control stain buildup over time.

    You also need to quit smoking and using any other form of tobacco. Tobacco use will stain your teeth within months, ruining your newly-whitened smile.

  • Does Teeth Whitening Cause Sensitivity?

    Yes. It’s quite common for teeth whitening to cause sensitivity during the take-home treatment process, and this may persist for a few days after your treatment ends. If you have naturally-sensitive teeth, discuss this with Dr. Eastwood before your treatment begins. He may adjust the frequency and intensity of your treatments.

    In addition, you can take steps like using Sensodyne or a similar anti sensitivity toothpaste during your treatment. Avoiding really hot and cold foods and drinks may also be helpful. You can also take medication like ibuprofen or even use a numbing product like Orajel if you are experiencing serious sensitivity.
