Teeth Whitening in Elk Grove
If you’re self-conscious about your smile in Elk Grove due to stains, Dr. Jeron Winslow is here to help. At our office, we offer both in-office whitening and take-home teeth whitening to restore your smile and your self-confidence in Elk Grove. Learn more below or contact us now for a consultation.
In-office whitening is the best option for fast results. It’s usually possible to whiten your teeth up to 5-10 shades in just a single appointment with Dr. Winslow. If you’re interested in getting whiter teeth for a time-sensitive event like a wedding, photo shoot, or business conference, in-office whitening is the best choice for you.
Take-home whitening uses custom-fitted trays and professional whitening products, allowing you to treat your teeth in the comfort of your own home. It provides more gradual results, but still results in a beautiful, professionally-whitened smile. If you’d prefer to avoid spending time in the dentist’s chair, it’s a great option.
what to expect
the teeth whitening Process
The process will differ depending on the type of teeth whitening you choose. In-office teeth whitening is done by Dr. Jeron Winslow at our office. Dr. Winslow will clean and prepare your teeth, and apply protective products to your gums and oral tissue. Then, he will apply a powerful whitener to your teeth and activate it with UV light. Then, the whitener will be rinsed away, and this process will be repeated until your teeth have reached your desired level of whiteness.
Take-home whitening is a bit different. First, you’ll come into The Grove Family Dental to have impressions of your teeth taken. Then, Dr. Winslow will create a set of custom reusable whitening trays. You’ll come into our office to pick up these trays, and get a set of whitening products and instructions for their use. Then, you’ll just follow Dr. Winslow’s instructions to brighten your teeth in the comfort of your own home.
How long does
teeth whitening last?
In most cases, your teeth will remain bright and white for about 1-3 years. This partially depends on how well you care for your smile. Make sure to brush and floss regularly and see Dr. Winslow for teeth cleanings every six months. Incorporating whitening toothpaste and mouthwash into your oral care routine can also help preserve your newly-whitened teeth.
Other steps you can take include reducing your intake of staining beverages like coffee and tea, or drinking them with a straw to prevent direct contact with your teeth. You should also cease smoking and using tobacco products, which can stain your teeth within months.
Understanding the cost
of teeth whitening
The cost of teeth whitening will depend on your level of staining and your desired results, so it varies between each patient. In most cases, though, in-office whitening is a bit more expensive than take-home whitening, so take-home treatment may be a better option if you’re on a budget. To get an estimate for the cost of treatment, contact The Grove Family Dental for a consultation with Dr. Jeron Winslow.
