How to Prepare for a Professional Teeth Whitening SessionJun. 15 2023
If you’re unhappy with the way your teeth look because they are stained or discolored, a professional teeth whitening session might be the answer you’ve been looking for! At Dr. Glaser’s, we offer a teeth whitening service that will give you immediate results and a sparkling, whiter-than-ever smile.
Dental Checkup and Consultation
Before your teeth whitening session, it’s best that you see Dr. Dean Glasser or Dr. Renee Glasser to have your teeth and dental health checked to make sure you don’t need any treatments, such as a filling. It is also a good idea to have your teeth cleaned while you are in for a dental checkup to remove any plaque. During this dental visit, one of the dentists will make sure your teeth can benefit from professional teeth whitening as some stains can’t be removed. If we decide you are an ideal candidate, we will discuss the problem areas that should be targeted.
Use Desensitizing Toothpaste
If you already have sensitive teeth, it’s possible that whitening your teeth professionally will make the sensitivity worse. Using desensitizing toothpaste before your session is a great way to help with your teeth’s sensitivity during and after the procedure and eliminate any pain.
Take Before Pictures
To really see the difference between before and after your teeth whitening session, take a before picture of your teeth! This can help you see how well your teeth reacted to the teeth whitening and give you a sense of what future sessions will look like.
What Types of Teeth Whitening Does Dr. Glasser Offer?
At Dr. Glasser’s, we offer two types of teeth whitening services, in-office whitening and at-home. Both whitening services provide the same exceptional results. However, in-office whitening results are seen immediately after your session, whereas at-home whitening results could take up to two weeks.
