Whiten your teeth with Dousman Dental
A sparkling, white smile is a great way to make a first impression. 48% of people say that a smile is the first thing they notice when meeting someone new. Our teeth rarely stay as white as we'd like them to without a little help. Our team at Dousman Dental will brighten your smile noticeably within an hour with a simple procedure.
How much does it cost to whiten your teeth?
The cost of teeth whitening will vary due to the type of products or treatment used, but the average is $500 per session.
Does dental insurance cover teeth whitening?
Since teeth whitening is considered to be a cosmetic procedure, it is not covered by dental insurance. You can check with your insurance provider to be sure. However, Dousman has payment plans and will work with you to determine the best way to cover your treatment expenses.
How does professional teeth whitening work?
Before you go in to get your teeth whitened, we recommend that patients schedule an exam to make sure that your teeth and gums are healthy enough for whitening. Cavities and infections will be treated before the procedure. This way, we can make sure that tooth discoloration is not the result of a dental condition in need of treatment.
To protect your teeth and gums, a rubber shield or gel will be applied. Then, the dentist will apply a bleach solution that will stain your teeth whiter over the course of an hour. You can kick back and relax while your teeth turn noticeably whiter.
Keep your teeth whiter longer
Teeth whitening is an investment, and you want your results to last for as long as possible. Maintain a healthy routine of brushing and flossing every day, and keep up with your regular schedule of professional cleanings at the dental office. You should also avoid foods and beverages that stain, including red wine, tea, and coffee. The time your whitening lasts will vary, but it is usually 6 months to over 2 years.
Alternatives to teeth whitening
If your stains are too severe to be helped with teeth whitening, you can also take a look at getting veneers. Veneers placed on the surface of the teeth can cover dark stains that aren't corrected through teeth whitening. Consult with a dentist today to learn which option is right for you.
