What Can You Expect From a Teeth Whitening Treatment?, Glastonbury, Connecticut

Teeth whitening isn’t just reserved for the stars. You don’t have to live with yellow or stained teeth, either, because anyone can have a brighter smile after only a couple of trips to the dentist. Nayaug Family Dental in South Glastonbury, CT, is ready to help you achieve yours, and their staff explains what you can expect from the procedure.

What to Anticipate From Teeth Whitening

teeth whiteningTeeth whitening can involve several different methods, including a gel application and take-home trays that you wear daily, which is the most popular option. The process requires two visits to your dental office. During your first appointment, your dentist will use a mold of your teeth to create custom whitening trays. At the following appointment, the trays will be adjusted for a proper fit. You’ll probably wear the trays at home for 30 minutes twice a day, but your dentist will give you specific instructions at the office.

What Affects the Results?

Everyone reacts to teeth whitening differently. What your teeth look like afterward depends on what they looked like before the treatment. Yellow teeth usually react well to the procedure, but results vary with brown or grayish teeth. Additionally, whitening will not work on crowns, veneers, or dental fillings.

Speak with your dentist about the benefits of teeth whitening beforehand. You should also address any other concerns, such as dark stains or cavities, before you schedule the appointment to lighten your teeth. Schedule a teeth cleaning prior to the procedure to get your teeth ready.

Would you like your teeth to be lighter? Give the staff at Nayaug Family Dental a call at (860) 633-6167 to schedule an appointment. They’ll evaluate your teeth and work with you to brighten your smile. Visit their website to find out what differentiates this dental office from the rest.
