Who is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Truthfully, almost anyone with a discolored smile is eligible for teeth whitening in Milwaukee! Of course, you’ll need a consultation with Dr. Franzen first to determine whether or not you’re a good candidate. He’ll conduct an oral examination and review your medical history to find out if this option is right for you.

A variety of factors contribute to tooth color. Coffee, foods, tobacco, and routine wear and tear are common causes of extrinsic stains, which are stains that appear on the surface of the teeth. Likewise, medications, trauma, aging, and excessive fluoride can result in intrinsic stains, which are stains that form on the interior of the teeth. Although it was believed that teeth whitening could only remove surface stains, recent studies found that teeth whitening administered by a licensed dental professional is a safe and effective way to remove both types of stains.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

During your consultation, Dr. Franzen will recommend one of the following options based on your unique needs and preferences:

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Dr. Franzen will take impressions of your teeth to create custom mouth trays for you to use at home. Simply fill the trays with the professional teeth whitening solution we provide and wear them for about 20 minutes each day. You will begin to notice a difference immediately! However, you should continue treatment until the solution is gone for optimal results. If desired, you can keep the trays and use them for touch-ups in the future.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

In-office teeth whiteners use a high concentration of peroxide to achieve drastic results quickly. Dr. Franzen will only ever use safe and effective materials to make your smile several shades brighter. The professional-grade bleaching gel penetrates the enamel and eliminates discoloration below the surface. This option is ideal for patients wanting fast results for an upcoming event, such as an interview, wedding, or graduation.  

Tips for Maintaining Your Brighter Smile

Once you have a brighter smile, you’re going to want to keep it that way! Here’s how you can preserve your hard-earned results:

  • Reduce your intake of dark-colored foods and drinks (i.e., soda, red wine, coffee, tea, curry, soy sauce)
  • Practice good oral hygiene (i.e., brush twice a day, floss daily, rinse daily with an ADA-approved mouthwash)
  • Visit Dr. Franzen regularly for checkups and cleanings
  • Kick poor habits to the curb (i.e., smoking, biting fingernails, using teeth as tools)
  • Inquire about at-home touch-ups to maintain your results
