Why Choose Sparkling Smiles Fayetteville for Teeth Whitening?

Who is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Most patients who want teeth whitening are able to get this treatment. The only requirement is that you have no cavities, infections, or other oral health issues. As long as your teeth and gums are healthy and only need to improve their whiteness, you should be good to move forward. 

We may also ask you about some areas of your lifestyle and well-being because, in some cases, such as if you are taking certain medications, discoloration may not be caused by surface stains. In this situation, even professional whitening may not give you the results you’re looking for, but we can recommend other effective methods for achieving the brilliant smile you’re after.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Regardless of the type of whitening treatment you choose, the essential elements are similar. Even the solutions you can buy at the store have either carbamide or hydrogen peroxide as their active ingredient. However, the professional-grade treatment you get from us is far more concentrated and powerful than what you’ll find on the shelf at the drugstore or online.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Similar to store-bought solutions, this type of whitening is completed over the course of about two weeks from the comfort and convenience of your own home. However, unlike these cheaper options, our take-home whitening uses custom trays and is more effective at removing up to 8 shades of discoloration.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

If you want to get treatment accomplished in just one hour, our in-office whitening may be the best choice for your smile. This alternative is also great for those who are on a time crunch or need results fast. By the time you leave our office, your smile’s brilliance will have improved significantly!

Tips for Maintaining Your Brighter Smile

Just as your house needs regular maintenance to look its best, so does your smile. Without proper care, stains will set back in more quickly; on the other hand, making certain decisions in your diet and lifestyle can extend the lifespan of your results.

First, you must brush and floss your teeth every single day and continue coming in for regularly dental checkups and cleanings. These tasks alone can go a long way to keeping your teeth white. For further protection against discoloration, consider limiting dark-colored foods and beverages like coffee, dark sodas, red wine, and tomato sauce. If you do have them, follow them up with water to help rinse away the pigment.

Understanding the Cost of Teeth Whitening

These days, before making any purchase, you probably consider the cost, and teeth whitening is no exception. However, compared to more advanced cosmetic treatments like veneers and the like, whitening is one of the least expensive choices, which hopefully goes a long way to put your financial worries to rest. To learn more about how much professional whitening will cost, whether at home or in our office, you’ll need to schedule an appointment.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Teeth Whitening

Unlike buying whitening treatment off the shelf, professional whitening doesn’t necessarily have one set price because there are several factors we consider. For instance, the price may vary depending on which method you choose to brighten your teeth. At-home trays and gel tend to cost less than in-office treatment, but it also requires more time to reach the goal. Also, if your teeth need extra strength whitening power or fluoride treatment after whitening, the cost could increase as well. After we’ve had a chance to examine your teeth, we can take all these factors into account and give you a straightforward price.

Inexpensive Commercial Teeth Whitening vs. Professional Teeth Whitening

We understand the appeal of cheaper alternatives for teeth whitening, but you need to consider what you’re getting for your money. Although commercial strips or trays may be “more affordable,” they promise better results than they are capable of delivering. Professional trays are customized to your unique set of teeth, which not only ensures more even coverage but also guarantees a comfortable fit. Plus, the stronger whitening agent will result in more noticeable changes in color! Considering everything professional teeth whitening has to offer, you’ll find it becomes well worth the extra cost.

Options for Making Teeth Whitening Affordable

Unfortunately, most dental insurance policies do not cover cosmetic procedures, including teeth whitening. Despite being a lower-costing treatment, whitening treatment may still be more than what you want to pay all at once. In this scenario, you can apply for low-interest financing and pay for your whitening over a couple of months. At your appointment, we can break down your financial options and come to a solution that works for you and our office.
