Candidates for
Glo® Teeth Whitening

Good candidates for Glo teeth whitening are those who are looking to achieve fast, safe, and sensitivity-free treatment to get a brighter smile. The treatment can tackle most major dental staining as well, including deep coffee and red wine stains and stains that have formed as a result of taking certain medications. The only patients who we wouldn’t recommend for this treatment are those who have several visible dental restorations (because they aren’t porous and won’t whiten) and those who have lingering oral health problems or sensitive or receding gums.

Teeth Whitening FAQs

Perhaps you think teeth whitening in South Lake sounds great. After all, the procedure can help anyone’s pearly whites live up to their name! However, you likely have concerns about it you’d prefer to address. Fair enough – getting the relevant facts will help you feel confident in treatment. Luckily, we at Huckabee Dental have you covered: here are some answers to popular teeth whitening questions. By reading them, you’ll learn what whiteners can do. Otherwise, please call our office for details.

Am I a Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

In truth, the requirements for teeth whitening aren’t stringent. You’re likely a good candidate if you can’t smile boldly due to stubborn stains. Once that fact is settled, most can proceed with the procedure.

Still, the best way to confirm candidacy is with a consultation visit. This appointment would let our dentists perform an oral exam and learn your smile goals. If they find your teeth and gums healthy, they’ll begin working on your custom treatment plan. Should you have an untreated dental issue, our office will perform preparatory services first.

Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?

Pain is a big concern for dental patients, whether in preventive care or cosmetic upgrades. That said, professional teeth whitening is typically comfortable. Dentists customize the procedure for your mouth, so it’s unlikely to cause tooth sensitivity.

Of course, do let our team know if your teeth tend to be sensitive. We can adjust the whitening process accordingly. For example, we could do spaced-out treatments to avoid unpleasant sensations. Our dentists can also suggest specialty toothpastes that would numb your teeth beforehand.

Does Teeth Whitening Damage Enamel?

Teeth whitening doesn’t harm healthy enamel. If it did, dentists wouldn’t offer the service in the first place. After all, they’re committed to your oral health!

Things change, however, when the teeth in question suffer decay or gum disease. In that case, whitening chemicals may cause problems. It’s thus essential that you receive a thorough oral exam before treatment. By getting one, a dentist sees if your teeth are well enough for the bleaching process.

Even if a dentist discourages whitening, don’t worry. They can still provide valuable tips on products and oral hygiene habits. That way, you’ll be closer to a safe, white smile.

Is Teeth Whitening Permanent?

Unfortunately, no – teeth whitening’s effects aren’t permanent. The results typically last from a few months to a few years, depending on how you care for your teeth.

Thankfully, though, there are ways to prolong the whitening effect. To that end, consider the following tips:

  • Practice Good Oral Hygiene – If you keep your teeth clean, you’ll prevent future tooth stains. So, remember to brush twice daily, floss once daily, and rinse with mouthwash often.
  • See Your Dentist Often – Six-month checkups and cleanings help whitening last. These visits, you see, allow dentists to treat minor staining before it gets more severe.
  • Avoid Poor Dental Habits – Using cigarettes, cigars, or chewing tobacco will discolor your teeth.
