Best Candidates for Professional Teeth Whitening
Professional teeth whitening may be a good cosmetic option for adult and teen patients who wish to gain a whiter, more confident smile. GLO in-office or at-home teeth whitening can be effective at enhancing the appearance of teeth that are:
- Yellow or dull from age
- Darkened by tobacco use
- Discolored from illness or medications
- Stained from tea, coffee, red wine, spices, berries, or other foods
While our whitening solutions can be highly effective at brightening the shade of natural tooth enamel, they will not change the color of any dental fillings, crowns, or other restorations you may have. Talk with our team to explore whether simple teeth whitening or other cosmetic dentistry solutions are best for reaching your desired smile results. We can help you determine if your teeth and gums are healthy enough for teeth whitening and customize a treatment strategy to meet your needs.
What to Expect with Professional Teeth Whitening
GLO professional teeth whitening works through a patented technology to gently eliminate deep stains within tooth enamel and deliver optimal outcomes for each patient. At PDADental, we offer in-office and home whitening solutions to fit your unique lifestyle. In some cases, a combination of whitening treatments may be recommended to fully optimize aesthetic results.
In-office teeth whitening is performed in one of our comfortable treatment rooms. To begin, our team will polish the teeth to remove plaque or other debris and cover the gums with a protective barrier. A thin layer of GLO whitening gel will be applied to the teeth within the smile zone. The gel is then activated by a special mouthpiece that emits a safe LED light and warming heat to quickly dissolves tooth stains and discoloration. We will complete between 2 – 4 eight-minute applications, depending upon your starting shade and desired results. In-office treatments can conveniently lighten the enamel by up to 12 shades to reveal a brighter, whiter smile in about an hour.
Home teeth whitening is accomplished through the use of a hands-free whitening device and prescription-strength gel. After brushing your teeth and applying a thin layer of whitening gel to your enamel, you will position the tray-like appliance between the upper and lower teeth. The device will emit a warm heat and blue LED light to activate the gel. While also highly effective, professional home whitening allows you to quickly whiten your teeth and boost your smile when it is most convenient for you. The GLO system offers a simple, easy whitening solution that eliminates the need for messy impressions and mouth trays.
Professional Teeth Whitening Recovery
Our team chooses the GLO Science system for its ability to accelerate the teeth whitening process while minimizing side effects, like tooth and gum discomfort. After your in-office or home teeth whitening treatment is complete, you can go about your normal daily routine. It is best to avoid using tobacco products and consuming foods or beverages that are dark in color for at least two days following your treatment. We also recommend brushing and flossing immediately following the use of these products to help maintain your whitening results. When you visit PDADental for your routine dental cleanings, our hygienists will polish any surface stains that may accumulate between visits to help maintain your smile. Our office keeps additional whitening gel on hand in case you wish to touch up your results over time.
Professional Teeth Whitening Insurance Coverage
As cosmetic dentistry treatments, teeth whitening is not a covered service under most dental insurance plans. Before your visit, our treatment coordinator will talk with you about your treatment costs and review our flexible payment options. PDADental also partners with CareCredit® to bring low-cost financial solutions to New York City patients.
