Understanding Candidacy for Professional Teeth Whitening

A bright smile can exude not only beauty, but confidence. Patients in the area of Gilbert, AZ who are struggling with the appearance of dull or discolored teeth may turn to their local drug store’s oral care aisle to browse the options available there. However, these treatment solutions are not nearly as powerful as the in-office whitening that is available at the practice of Dr. John A. Garza.

What is in-office power whitening?

Our practice focuses on providing faster results with less sensitivity. In fact, our in-office whitening treatment ensures same day results. In approximately one hour, patients can brighten their smile up to eight shades whiter using our chairside services.

Determining candidacy

Not everyone is considered a good candidate for professional whitening services, which is why we encourage patients to book a consultation visit with Dr. John A. Garza. During this visit, the dentist will evaluate the patient’s smile. If a patient has restorations in place, including dental veneers, bridges, or crowns, they may not be suited for this treatment. Professional whitening does not change the color of existing restorations made of porcelain. Therefore, if the whitening process is performed on the rest of the smile, the restorations will stand out as a discolored restoration.

Fortunately, patients who are serious about whitening their smile and keeping the results are still able to obtain whitening. However, it may require additional costs to replace the restorations that are there. By replacing these restorations, the dentist can ensure the new ones match the whitened smile and the look is consistent throughout the dental arch. Patients can then come into the office on a regular basis to have their natural teeth whitened to retain the new color of the teeth for many years to come!
