Why Choose Mick Family Dental Care for Teeth Whitening?

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

When you visit our Reynoldsburg dental office for teeth whitening, we have two routes you can take to achieve the smile of your dreams: in-office treatment or a take-home kit. The following explains how each process works:

In-Office Teeth Whitening

If you choose the in-office route, we’ll first protect your soft tissue to prevent any irritation. Then, we’ll carefully apply the whitening agents and activate their properties using a special light. We’ll do this up to three times for 15-20 minutes each round. Thus, in roughly an hour of your time, you can have an amazing new look!

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

If you prefer to undergo treatment in the comfort and privacy of your own home, then we also offer custom take-home whitening kits. There are two primary differences between professional teeth whitening and the store-bought options: customization and the quality of the ingredients used.

One of the drawbacks of store-bought whiteners is that they rely on generic application trays. Thus, there is a greater chance of the whitening agents causing gum irritation. To prevent this from happening, Dr. Mick will custom design a set of trays to perfectly accommodate the size, shape, and alignment of your teeth. Not only is this safer, but it also allows for better results.

Who is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

To be eligible for either form of teeth whitening, you should first have sufficient oral health. After all, you don’t want to focus on the appearance of your smile with disregard to the wellness and strength of your teeth.

From an aesthetic perspective, professional teeth whitening is an excellent solution whether your teeth are stained due to a medical condition or from consuming highly pigmented foods and beverages. No matter what the source of the stubborn blemishes is, the fast-acting whiteners will penetrate deep into the enamel to leave your teeth noticeably brighter.

The Benefits of Teeth Whitening

If you’re ready to take control of your life and experience the joys of having a smile you can be proud of, then contact us today to schedule your first visit with Dr. Mick!

Teeth Whitening FAQs

As you can imagine, teeth whitening is one of our most popular services, so we get a lot of questions about it. If you want to know more about something that we haven’t covered on this page, you are always welcome to give our team a call and pick our brains! Before that, however, you can see our responses to some common questions we receive below.

How long will I need to use professional take-home teeth whitening?

On average, a patient will need to use the custom whitening kit we provide as directed for about 10-14 days to see optimal results. Fortunately, thanks to the flexibility of the treatment, a patient can choose to whiten for a shorter or longer amount of time depending on the brightness they want to achieve. However, we don’t recommend using it for much more than two weeks, as this could potentially cause sensitivity and gum irritation.

How long will my whitening results last?

After receiving a professional whitening treatment, a patient can reasonably expect their teeth to stay bright for several months to over a year before a touch-up is needed. A couple of things that can help someone maintain their new shade include minimizing their consumption of highly-pigmented foods and drinks (coffee, wine, etc.), consistently brushing and flossing, and regularly visiting Dr. Mick for checkups and cleanings. This will largely prevent the stains that caused you to want whitening in the first place!


Will I experience sensitivity after teeth whitening?

It’s common for some patients to have some mild dental sensitivity following teeth whitening, but this should only last for a day or two. Thanks to our team’s skill and the quality of products we use, it is usually so minor that most patients don’t even need to take an OTC reliever. We simply recommend avoiding extremely hot or cold foods for a couple of days, and after that, your mouth should feel completely normal.


Can I use my dental insurance to pay for teeth whitening?

Because teeth whitening is a purely cosmetic treatment, it is rarely covered by dental insurance. Thankfully, the service itself is quite affordable, and for patients who need help paying for it, they can actually spread out the cost using low-to-no interest financing provided by CareCredit or LendingClub . We can help you put together a financial plan that works for you when you come to see us.
