Who Is a Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

  • Realistic expectations about the outcome

It’s essential to consult with Dr. Morgan to determine the best approach for your specific case.

How Does the Procedure Work?

At-Home Whitening

  1. Consultation: Start by consulting with our Vero Beach dentist, who may provide a custom-made tray to fit your teeth.
  2. Application: Apply the whitening gel to the tray and wear it for a specified period, often a few hours a day or overnight.
  3. Results: Over a period of several days to weeks, you’ll notice your teeth becoming progressively whiter.

In-Office Whitening

  2. Application: A high-concentration whitening gel is applied to your teeth.
  3. Quick Results: In about one to two hours, you’ll leave Vero Beach Dental Care with noticeably whiter teeth.

Maintaining Professional Teeth Whitening Results

Once you’ve illuminated your stunning smile, you’ll want to maintain your results. Follow Dr. Morgan’s tips to keep your teeth brighter after your professional whitening:

  • Practice Good Oral Hygiene: Brush your teeth at least twice a day using a fluoride toothpaste and a soft-bristle toothbrush. Ensure that you clean all surfaces of your teeth, including those hard-to-reach areas.
  • Floss Daily: Flossing removes plaque and food particles from between your teeth and along the gumline. This helps prevent stains and maintains the brightness of your smile.
  • Limit Staining Foods and Beverages: Be cautious with highly pigmented foods and drinks like coffee, tea, red wine, and dark-colored berries. If you do consume them, rinse your mouth with water afterward.
  • Avoid Tobacco Products: Smoking and using tobacco products can lead to tooth discoloration. Quitting not only benefits your overall health but also helps maintain your white smile.
  • Regular Dental Check-ups and Cleanings: Visit Dr. Morgan at Vero Beach Dental Care for routine check-ups and cleanings. Professional cleanings help remove surface stains and keep your teeth and gums healthy.
  • Consider Touch-Up Treatments: Depending on the type of whitening treatment you received, your dentist may recommend occasional touch-up treatments to maintain your desired level of whiteness.
  • Stay Hydrated: Drinking plenty of water helps keep your mouth hydrated and supports overall oral health.
  • Address Any Dental Issues Promptly: If you experience sensitivity, pain, or notice any changes in the appearance of your teeth, consult Dr. Morgan as soon as possible.
