Teeth Cleaning & Whitening Q & A

What is teeth cleaning and whitening?

Teeth cleaning and whitening are dental treatments your provider uses to remove cavity-causing plaque and tartar and whiten your teeth. Undergoing teeth whitening can significantly brighten stained teeth, make your smile more beautiful, and help you regain your confidence.

What should I expect during teeth cleaning?

During teeth cleanings at Masterpiece Smile, your specialist examines your teeth and gums. They remove plaque and tartar from hard-to-reach areas before flossing and polishing your teeth. Your provider also takes dental X-rays when needed.

What kinds of teeth whitening are available?

If you desire a whiter, brighter smile, the team at Masterpiece Smiles can help. They offer a couple of teeth whitening solutions based on your personalized needs and preferences.

In-office whitening

In-office whitening is fast and highly effective. Masterpiece Smiles uses the Philips Zoom! in-office whitening system to make your teeth many shades whiter in just one hour. During treatment, Dr. Schmidt coats your teeth with a whitening gel. Then, he shines a special light on the trays to activate the whitening gel. The treatment quickly removes stains and dullness.

Take-home whitening trays

Custom-fitted, take-home whitening trays allow you to effectively whiten your teeth yourself at home. This type of whitening can make your teeth up to 10 shades whiter. Custom-made trays fit over your teeth to hold the whitening gel in place. You can expect superior results after just two weeks.

Which kind of teeth whitening is right for me?

Dr. Schmidt reviews your oral health history, examines your teeth and gums, and discusses your desired results. He then lets you know which teeth whitening system will work best for you. If you have tooth damage, decay, or gum disease, he’ll treat those conditions before or in addition to whitening your teeth.

When should I schedule teeth cleaning and whitening?

Schedule teeth cleaning appointments with Masterpiece Smiles at least every six months or as directed by Dr. Schmidt. You can whiten your teeth at home as needed, but check in with Dr. Schmidt to determine how often to schedule in-office whitening visits.

To keep your teeth white, limit or avoid drinking coffee, tea, red wine, and cola, and limit foods like popsicles, tomato sauce, and others that can stain your teeth. Attend your routine teeth cleanings and whitening visits to keep your teeth white and your smile beautiful.
