What is Professional Teeth Whitening?

Today, there is a lot of focus on the way we look, and we know the color of our teeth can be a major cosmetic concern. Fortunately, Downtown Dental Partners – Boston, MA, is able to help you get visibly white teeth with professional teeth whitening. While there are tons of grocery store whitening choices, we offer a product that has shown to be superior to any over-the-counter remedies currently available. Our whitening treatments, highly recommended by our team of dentists, will whiten your teeth by several shades and help you keep your beautiful results much longer than alternative choices. We utilize professional-strength whitening solutions that truly do the job, reaching below the surface of your teeth to remove deep stains, instead of consumer-level solutions that just scrape the surface (quite literally) and merely produce a brighter shade of yellow at the very best.

Can I Get Teeth Whitening?

If you're thinking about whitening your teeth, you're probably considering the pros and cons of professional-strength vs. store-bought whitening solutions. Really, though, you should be thinking about what you are really trying to accomplish. If you have had a white smile your whole life and just recently started to see yellow teeth, a grocery store purchased whitening kit could produce great results, albeit temporary. If your teeth have darker discoloration, you may be a perfect candidate for professional-strength, in-office teeth whitening at Downtown Dental Partners – Boston, MA. If you need home touch-ups, we can also provide take-home trays designed with you in mind, which can be used in conjunction with our whitening gels for upkeep.

Teeth Whitening Process

Expectations for your whitening treatments will depend on the procedure recommended by our team. Since Downtown Dental Partners – Boston, MA, provides several options for quality, successful teeth whitening, the procedure chosen for you will be determined after we discuss your aesthetic goals. In most cases, your in-office teeth whitening procedure will be completed in less than an hour as we use a professional-strength whitening gel combined with the technology of a light system that cures quickly and whitens teeth several colors. Our at-home systems are also efficient but might offer a more subtle result over a few weeks and months.

After Your Teeth Whitening

Following your teeth whitening sessions, you may experience sensitivity to hot or cold beverages — this should subside within a few short days. Just like all dental procedures, routine dental appointments are important and essential to maintaining your results. Once the whitening treatment is finished and we've reached your desired results, we typically suggest returning for touch-ups a few times a year, in addition to your twice-yearly cleanings that will benefit your dental health. Remember that just because your teeth are white does not necessarily mean that they're healthy. That is why routine examinations are necessary. We will also give you everything you need to know regarding what foods and drinks should and should not be consumed in the future, for example, coffee and red wine, to maintain your results.

Insurance and Teeth Whitening

Since teeth whitening is optional and cosmetic in nature, it isn't commonly covered by dental insurance providers. Nonetheless, we can review your dental benefits to determine whether any portion of your teeth whitening can be covered by your insurance. If your expenses are not covered under insurance or you do not carry dental insurance, then we can help you understand your payment choices in addition to the potential for receiving low-interest medical financing.

A Brighter Smile

Professional teeth whitening can provide quick and dramatic improvements to your smile. If you have been contemplating teeth whitening but aren't sure if professional or an over-the-counter option is the best choice, we invite you to schedule an appointment with our team to talk about the advantages and risks of each method before you make your decision. We look forward to helping you get a brighter smile.
