1.Does insurance cover the cost of teeth whitening procedures?
No. Dental insurance does not typically cover the cost of the teeth whitening procedures.
2. How long do the teeth whitening effects last?
Teeth whitening is not permanent. People who expose their teeth to foods and beverages that cause staining may see the whiteness start to fade in as little as one month. Those who avoid foods and beverages that stain may be able to wait one year or longer before another whitening treatment or touch-up is needed.
3. Do teeth whiteners damage tooth enamel?
Studies of teeth whitening products using 10% carbamide peroxide showed no effect on the hardness or mineral content of a tooth's enamel surface.
4. How often can I get my teeth whitened?
It is safe to do once every 4 months
5. Am I a good candidate for teeth whitening?
The ideal candidate for teeth whitening is someone who is in good dental health, has general tooth discoloration and stains, understands the pros and cons of treatment and has realistic expectations of results. Teeth whitening helps remove stains on the surface of your teeth caused by drinking beverages such as tea, coffee, and red wine and eating food such as blueberries and beets. Using tobacco products and the aging process can also discolor teeth, but thankfully, teeth whitening can help restore the bright health of your smile.
