orthodontist kansas city ksIf you’re considering teeth whitening, you may be wondering what you need to know before booking your appointment. Our orthodontist in Kansas City, KS, is here to help! There are different types of whitening treatments and some considerations for those with braces or dental restorations. Keep reading to learn more below. 

Types of Whitening 

There are different approaches for whitening your teeth, including:

Professional whitening that we do in-office. These are much stronger than those purchased at the store. 

Take-home trays. We create custom trays for you in our office and give you a whitening solution so you can whiten your teeth at home.

Store-bought whitening strips or trays. These usually have a small amount of peroxide and are weaker than professional whitening solutions.

Whitening toothpaste. This can help maintain your results and remove surface stains.

When you have whitening performed professionally, not only is it more effective, but your doctor can monitor and preserve your enamel so you don’t suffer from tooth sensitivity. 

Whitening With Braces

If you are currently undergoing treatment with traditional braces, you should wait until your braces are removed before whitening your teeth. Whitening them with braces on will leave stains underneath the brackets – so it’s better to whiten following treatment for an even, bright smile! 

Crowns & Restorations

For those who need to have restorations created, such as crowns, bridges, or implants, we advise that you whiten your teeth to your desired shade before color matching for your piece, as porcelain and other restoration materials don’t respond to whitening. To see if you are a candidate for teeth whitening, contact our office today!
