What is Home Teeth Whitening?
Home teeth whitening is a great way to give your smile a boost when it is most convenient for you. Professional-grade whitening kits from Made Ya Smile Dental are easy to use and can help you eliminate a yellow or stained appearance on your teeth to give your grin a brighter and more youthful look. Over-the-counter whitening pastes, gels, and strips may not always generate desired results and may end up only wasting time and money. With a prescription-strength whitening gel and custom-made trays, however, adults and teens can safely and gradually take their smile to the next level. Take-home whitening may be used as a single procedure to brighten your smile from the comforts of home or incorporated into an overall smile makeover treatment plan. Either way, our dentists can customize a whitening solution to help you achieve a smile you can be proud to show off. Trade a dull or lifeless smile for a fantastic, brilliant result with take-home whitening kits from our experienced Sugar Land, TX team.

Am I a Candidate for Home Teeth Whitening?
At-home teeth whitening gives patients the chance to achieve a brighter, whiter smile at home when they find it to be most convenient. You may be a great candidate for professional teeth whitening if you have stained or yellowed teeth that you would like to brighten or you have used drugstore whitening products but have found them to be ineffective. Take-home whitening is often ideal for teeth that are dulled or stained from tea, coffee, red wine, tobacco, or other products that may darken the teeth over time. Our team customizes home whitening solutions to meet individual needs and plan the best path to helping you achieve the results you want for your smile. With this personalized approach, professional teeth whitening allows you to whiten by several shades until you reach the desired level of brightness for your smile.
How Does Home Teeth Whitening Work?
Take-home whitening kits include custom mouth trays and prescription whitening gel. Before creating your custom whitening kit, one of our dentists will examine your teeth and gums to ensure that your mouth is healthy enough to undergo the whitening process. You can often achieve the best results when your teeth are cleaned just prior to beginning the whitening process as this removes plaque and tartar that may prevent the whitening solution from lightening the tooth enamel. Our dentists will determine the strength of whitening gel that is best for your teeth, depending upon your starting enamel shade and desired outcome. We will make your custom whitening trays from impressions taken of your upper and lower teeth. Take-home whitening trays are fabricated right here at Made Ya Smile Dental from smooth plastic material that is comfortable to wear. When your trays are ready, we will have you try them in your mouth and show you how to apply the whitening solutions. Our team will also review how much gel to use, the best time of the day to wear your trays, and how to properly clean them following each use.
What to Expect After Home Teeth Whitening
Patients love the fact that they can control the level of whitening that occurs when using take-home professional kits. Individual results will vary among patients based on the strength of the prescription whitening gel, beginning enamel shade, and how frequently the gel is applied. To generate the best possible results for your smile, our dentists recommend avoiding the consumption of dark-colored foods or beverages and smoking while you are in the process of whitening your teeth, as doing so may diminish your final outcome. Good daily home care with brushing and flossing along with regular dental cleanings with our team can help keep your smile bright and white for as long as possible. A great benefit of home teeth whitening is that you can touch up your smile whenever you feel you need to. Your whitening trays will always fit your mouth unless you have restorations placed, orthodontics, or other changes to your smile. Made Ya Smile Dental always keeps extra whitening solution on hand in case you need additional gel in the future.
Will Insurance Pay for Home Teeth Whitening?
Given that teeth whitening is a cosmetic type of procedure, dental insurance plans typically will not provide any coverage. Made Ya Smile Dental in Sugar Land, TX offers a range of convenient payment options to help you achieve your best smile, including low- or no-interest financing through CareCredit®. Our team will review treatment costs with you and help you find a payment option that matches your budget and puts your teeth whitening procedure within your reach.
