Outpatient teeth whitening is a procedure in which teeth whitening is performed at the patient’s home, using a teeth whitening kit provided by the dentist. This type of treatment involves the use of customized splints or trays containing a low-concentration whitening gel, such as hydrogen peroxide. The patient follows the dentist’s instructions for applying the gel to the splints and wearing them for a set period of time, usually a few hours a day or overnight.
In a teeth whitening treatment at Dental Center Mojacar, the following steps are followed:
- Initial evaluation: A dentist specializing in teeth whitening will perform a complete evaluation of the patient’s oral health, including the condition of the teeth, gums and oral tissues.
- In some cases, photographs and x-rays will also be taken if necessary.
- Dental history: The dentist will gather information about the patient’s dental history, including previous treatments, tooth sensitivity or any other relevant considerations.
- The dentist will indicate the customized outpatient teeth whitening plan that fits the patient’s needs and goals.
- This treatment is performed at home.
- Preparation: Before whitening begins, a professional teeth cleaning should be performed to remove any plaque, stains or tartar build-up on the teeth. This will help maximize the whitening results.
- The outpatient whitening agent: Depending on the method and treatment decided upon, a peroxide-based whitening agent will be applied to the teeth through splints created exclusively for the patient.
- Duration of treatment: The treatment lasts 10 to 15 days depending on the patient’s sensitivity.
- Aftercare: The dentist will provide recommendations on care during treatment. This may include dietary guidelines, oral hygiene habits and possible touch-ups or long-term maintenance.
It is important to note that each patient is unique, and specific treatment steps may vary according to individual needs. It is essential to follow the dentist’s instructions and attend regular check-ups to maintain a healthy, white smile.
