Whitening Treatment Options

You have more than one option for teeth whitening at Machen Family Dentistry. Listed below are a few different whitening options you may select. When considering cosmetic dentistry in Idaho Falls, make a list of questions and concerns to discuss with the dentist at Machen Family Dentistry. Common questions asked about our Idaho Falls teeth whitening procedures have included the length of time before results are noticeable, costs of the teeth whitening treatments, any side effects of teeth whitening, and what to expect during each visit to Machen Family Dentistry offices. Our Idaho Falls dentist would be happy to answer each of these questions for you and any others which may come to mind. See our teeth whitening options below.

Option 1: Tray-based tooth whitening uses a bleaching agent placed into a tray which is then fitted over the teeth and worn overnight.

Option 2:  Laser teeth whitening and light-activated systems whiten the teeth without the discomfort of some tray whitening systems and are only available in a dentist’s office.

Whitening treatments performed at a dental office such as Machen Family Dentistry, allow for professional application of the whitening substance. Better-looking results are more likely to be achieved through this professional application than through over-the-counter teeth whitening treatments sold at pharmacies and grocery stores. Machen Family Dentistry would love to brighten your smile and help you select the teeth whitening option best suited to your needs. Feel free to contact our Idaho Falls dentistry anytime to discuss your teeth whitening options.

After Whitening

You will want to preserve your brand new pearly whites after teeth whitening and other cosmetic dentistry services for obvious reasons. Good oral hygiene practices can help to preserve the whiteness of the teeth and allow you to enjoy your new smile even longer. By simply limiting or avoiding substances such as coffee, tea, red wine, cola and tobacco, you can help prevent discoloration or new stains from forming on the surface of your teeth. Regularly brushing and flossing of your teeth will also help to reduce and prevent plaque buildup, which can discolor the teeth. With these oral hygiene practices in mind, don’t forget to schedule an appointment every six months for an oral examination and teeth cleaning. Machen Family Dentistry can ensure your smile is at its best through our general dentistry and aesthetic dentistry services.
