There are quite a lot of questions to ask when you’re thinking that it may be time for teeth whitening. Since the list could become quite a long one, and since you may already have gotten answers to preliminary concerns, we would like to make the focus of today the detail of time! The “when” and “how long” of this cosmetic treatment to brighten up your grin can most certainly play into your final decision. Let’s get started!
Detail #1: Recovery Time Is Brief (Or Non-Existent)
You might have heard that recovering from teeth whitening can take a long time. A friend may have warned you that you won’t be able to eat the foods you like for a long time or that your teeth will hurt. These are simply not the case with professional care. You may very briefly notice strange sensations in your teeth (or you may need to avoid highly pigmented foods for a few days). That’s the full extent of it!
Detail #2: You Should Often Whiten Then Restore
Remember that you should not plan on receiving dental crowns or other restorations or treatments that include color-customization if you plan on brightening your smile later. Speak with us about wanting teeth whitening, so we may see if whitening your smile and then placing restorations to match the shade is a possibility.
Detail #3: Whitening Can Occur Well Before Your Event
You may feel like you have to schedule your teeth whitening right before your interview, wedding, party, or otherwise. The fact is, this is not true. You may whiten within the month or two and can still expect a beautifully vibrant grin when you need it!
