Looking for a Post Falls dentist to help you with stained teeth? External staining from substances like coffee, tea, wine, blueberries, and tobacco smoking can be remedied with teeth bleaching or whitening from Post Falls dentist Dr. Whitney Frank. At-home custom-tray teeth bleaching is easy to do and very effective in most cases.
At your comprehensive exam visit, Dr. Frank will evaluate the health of your teeth and gums and determine an appropriate protocol for your teeth whitening.
Some things to consider:
~If you need fillings, especially in front teeth, it’s best to bleach your teeth prior to fillings so that the new filling material can be chosen to match the new shade of your teeth. Filling material won’t bleach like natural tooth structure will.
~If your teeth are sensitive to cold, bleaching can make it worse. Our team can help you learn how to bleach appropriately to minimize cold sensitivity and prescribe desensitizing pastes that can be used in conjunction with bleaching.
~If your teeth are going to undergo major changes in shape with crowns or large fillings, bleach trays will need to be remade to fit the new teeth shape.
~It only takes two 10-minute visits at our conveniently located post falls dentist office to have your custom made bleach trays made. If your teeth are healthy, they can be made right after your first visit with us when you complete your comprehensive exam, recommended cleaning and any necessary x-rays.
~Depending on how white you’d like your teeth to be, you may reach your desired shade within 1-4 weeks. Then you may only need to bleach 1-2 times each month to maintain the shade.
~After bleaching and reaching your desired shade, avoid foods and activities that stain your teeth again.
