Teeth-Whitening

How Does Professional Teeth Whitening Work?

In-Office Teeth Whitening Treatments

The overall teeth-whitening procedure typically takes from 60 to 90 minutes to complete, and generally includes the following steps:

● Your dentist or oral care professional will make a note of your teeth’s current color and shade
● The surface of the teeth are cleaned to remove any plaque
● The mouth area will be isolated using gauze and retractors to ensure your lips, tongue, and gum don’t come into contact with the whitening solution
● Your dentist will place a barrier along the gumline to further protect it from the solution
● The front surface of your teeth are covered in the whitening solution, usually peroxide or carbamide
● In some instances, a curing light or laser may be used to activate the whitening solution. The solution will be left on the teeth for 30-60 minutes and may occasionally be reapplied
● When the desired shade is reached, the teeth are rinsed

Professional At-Home Teeth Whitening Kits​

An alternative to in-office teeth whitening is to do it yourself at home. However, do not confuse this with the over-the-counter (OTC) brands you may find at your local drugstore. A professional at-home teeth whitening kit can only be obtained from your dentist. Not only that, but it requires a dental impression of your teeth to make custom-fitted trays that are perfectly contoured to your mouth. These professional at-home kits typically require an hour per day for about two weeks to reach the desired tooth color and shade.

What Are the Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening?

Adds Confidence

A brighter, whiter smile is the perfect way to boost confidence and make a great first impression.

Longer-Lasting Results Than OTC Brands

Teeth whitening kits from the drugstore contain weaker ingredients, and the results fade much more quickly when compared to professional teeth whitening services.

Safety

By relying on a dentist, you’ll ensure that your teeth are whitened safely and non-invasively. In fact, OTC products can not only damage your enamel but also make your teeth more sensitive over time.

Removes Stains More Thoroughly Than OTC Brands

Using OTC kits can lead to uneven whitening and may even make them more prone to staining in the long run.

You Can Select the Shade That’s Perfect for You

OTC kits can only give you a shader or two lighter; your dentist will work with you to help you select the ideal shade for your teeth and the number of sessions to achieve it.

What Are Dental Implants?

Full dental implants are replacements for both the missing tooth and the missing root. Unlike dentures or bridges, dental implants are inserted into the gum, replacing both the root and the tooth.

Dental implants can be categorized as restorative dentistry surgery, as they contribute to your mouth’s health.

The dental implant begins with inserting a titanium screw into the jaw. This stimulates the jaw’s bone growth and reduces the “thinning” that can happen when teeth are missing. Once this has healed, the “cap” tooth is fitted into place, and can often be colored to match the surrounding teeth.

With dental implants, you can bite, speak, and chew regularly. Plus, the implant keeps other teeth from shifting in the mouth and maintains oral health. At Dental Beauty, we offer our patients affordable dental implants so they can get the smile they deserve at a cost that aligns with their budget!

Types of Dental Implants

There are a few types of dental implants, and your Bucks County dentist can help you determine which one is best for your mouth. Also, some patients may need to have bone grafting performed on the jaw to support the implant. This can include bone augmentation or a sinus lift, adding bone below the sinus where it’s deteriorated due to missing back teeth on the upper part of the jaw.

  • Subperiosteal dental implants are placed under the gum, and either on or above the jawbone. This type of implant is best for people who don’t have a healthy enough jawbone and don’t want to or cannot undergo bone augmentation procedures to rebuild it.
  • Endosteal dental implants are placed directly in the jawbone. These use the titanium screw implant and are the most common type of implant.

FAQs About Dental Implants

Here are some common questions we hear about dental implants:

Does dental insurance cover implants?

Many dental insurance companies consider implants to be a cosmetic dentistry procedure, and therefore may not provide coverage. We can work with your insurance to help determine if this is a medically necessary procedure. If you’re considering dental implants, you may wish to look for a new dental policy that does cover the procedure before booking the appointment.

Does PA Medicaid cover dental implants?

Traditional Medicaid, which is Medicaid Part A and Medicaid Part B, does not cover dental implants. However, some supplemental Medicaid insurance plans, called Medicare Advantage Plans, may cover dental implants. Private insurance companies provide these plans, and each plan varies on coverage.

How much do dental implants cost in PA?

Depending on the number of implants you need and whether you need bone grafting procedures, the costs can vary widely. Consult one of our dentists for more information regarding an accurate assessment.
