At-Home Teeth Whitening – DuPont, WA

Achieving a Brighter Smile On Your Own Time

At-home teeth whitening in DuPont is not a new concept. With so many products lining drug store shelves that promote “fast results” and “brighter smiles,” you may wonder why you would ever go to a professional when you can easily purchase a kit for less. Choosing any one of these store-bought products has resulted in many individuals starting with high expectations only to be left with fewer dollars in their wallet and disappointed with the results. Fortunately, at Dupont Family Dentistry, we can provide professional at-home whitening kits that are guaranteed to produce high-quality results that last longer and are worth the investment. If you are ready to find out how you can take advantage of this popular cosmetic treatment, contact us today!

How At-Home Teeth Whitening Works

When visiting Dupont Family Dentistry for professional teeth whitening, we will spend some time learning more about what you desire when it comes to results. Depending on the severity of the stains and discoloration on your teeth, we will personalize your treatment to better match what you hope to achieve.

Our at-home whitening kits include customized trays that are created based on impressions we take of your smile. This ensures a comfortable fit and less chance for improper use while whitening. You will also receive a high-grade bleaching gel that will blast through your tooth’s enamel and eliminate stubborn, deep-down stains.

As long as you follow the detailed instructions your cosmetic dentist in Dupont provides, you should begin to see a noticeable difference in your smile within two weeks.

How Long Do Results Last?

How long your whitening results last is dependent upon how well you maintain your new smile. This means avoiding:

  • Dark-colored beverages and foods that can easily stain your teeth (i.e. coffee, soda, tea, red wine, berries)
  • Hard, crunchy foods that can chip away at the enamel, causing it to become thin and worn
  • Using your teeth as tools to open containers and packages, as this can damage your teeth and cause the enamel to wear away, inevitably showing the underneath layer that can sometimes be more discolored
  • Smoking or other tobacco products

Maintaining a good oral hygiene routine and revisiting our office for touch-ups will ensure your results last as long as possible.

Maintenance Tips

If you want to keep your smile looking and feeling its best, it is helpful to:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day for two full minutes
  • Floss at least once daily
  • Rinse with an ADA-approved mouthwash
  • Eat a well-balanced, nutrient-rich diet that encourages strengthening tooth enamel and reducing bad bacteria that can cause gum disease and tooth decay
  • Using a straw to drink any beverage that can potentially cause staining, as this minimizes contact between your teeth and the liquid
  • Inquiring about ways to touch-up your smile when you notice the brightness is beginning to fade

Cost of Teeth Whitening

Naturally, one of the most common questions about at-home teeth whitening is “How much will it cost?” When considering the mere $30 or $40 you would spend on a store-bought kit, it might seem hard to justify the finalized cost of professional treatment. However, when you consider the results you will receive by using our customized trays and high-grade whitening gel, it is much more cost-effective than buying multiples of the same whitening kit at your local drug store.

The reason is that our gel is professional-grade, which means it produces results. Unlike many of the over-the-counter kits, you will notice that your whiter, brighter smile lasts much longer and does not require that you spend additional money to simply achieve the initial results you desire.

While dental insurance will most likely not cover teeth whitening treatment, our team will be happy to help you find a way to pay for treatment that better aligns with your budget.
