What Is Teeth WHitening?

The look of your smile can be a major cosmetic concern. You want your smile to radiate and impress those around you. At Wollaston Dental Group in Quincy, MA, we aim to do just that with our professional-grade teeth whitening treatment that really works to target all areas of concern. While there are hundreds of store-bought whitening alternatives, we provide a product that has shown to be superior to any over-the-counter remedies currently offered. Our whitening treatments are able to lighten your teeth by several shades, leaving you with lasting results. With our dental service, you are getting a treatment that works to treat deep stains that have been set from those multiple cups of coffee and tea you’ve had over the years.

Am I a Candidate for Professional Teeth Whitening?

To determine whether or not scheduling an appointment to have your teeth whitened is right for you, it is important to consider what you are trying to achieve. Our in-office teeth whitening treatment at Wollaston Dental Group will help you rid yourself of darker stains on your teeth that have come about thanks to tea, wine, or tobacco use. If you are someone who suffers from stains that you’ve been unable to rid yourself from, Dr. McDonough can also provide take-home custom trays that can be used in conjunction with our whitening gels if you would like to continue the whitening process from the comfort of your home and maintain a bright smile over the years.

How Does Teeth WHitening Work?

With in-office methods, your whitening will be completed in about an hour with prescription-strength whitening gel that is activated by our high-quality dental light. The gel combined with the light will lighten your teeth by several shades during your visit. Since our practice provides many teeth whitening options to choose from, your specific goals will be explored during your appointment with Dr. McDonough. We still take into account your specific cosmetic goals and your lifestyle when choosing exactly what is right for you. Additionally, we have an at-home teeth whitening system that will offer results over a period of weeks instead of instantly.

What Can I Expect After Teeth Whitening Treatment?

After a whitening treatment, you might experience some sensitivity to cold or hot foods and beverages, but this should subside within a couple of days. Detailed instructions will be provided to you detailing what foods and drinks should be avoided in the immediate future, such as coffee and red wine. Combined with touch-ups and your bi-annual dental cleanings with Dr. McDonough, great oral health will be easily maintained. It is also important to remember that having the smile you’ve always wanted comes with a daily oral routine of flossing and brushing, in addition to receiving regular dental exams.

Does Insurance Cover Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is commonly deemed as optional and cosmetic therefore it is not covered by insurance. However, our experienced billing team will access your dental benefits and determine if any part of your treatment will be covered. If you don’t carry insurance, our team at Wollaston Dental Group will work with you to develop a payment plan and how you might be eligible for low-interest dental financing.
