"We've been coming to Chestnut Hill Dental for many years. The reason we've been loyal is because of the amazing service we've gotten and most importantly, the staff has been phenomenal. Lauren, Julia and Dr. Calcano are among the best. They always make us feel at home. On a side note, I wish I can say the same with the new receptionist. The younger one is cold and lacks friendly customer service. I was met with a cold response when I asked her a question. She is not very welcoming. We miss Erin."- A. / Demandforce / Sep 24, 2020

who is a good candidate for at home tooth whitening?
Should you wish to brighten your smile in the comfort of your home, we might recommend a customized kit for at-home tooth whitening. Your dental enamel may appear dull or have yellow and dark stains that have accumulated over the years. You may have tried whitening products from the store, but found them ineffective, uncomfortable, or damaging to your teeth. At Chestnut Hill Dental, the amount of the whitening solution is customized to your requirements and goals, so it is a great choice if you have sensitive teeth. Your kit for teeth whitening at home could be used alone or after an in-office whitening treatment to maintain your results.
what should I expect during teeth bleaching treatment?
Your at-home whitening kit will be put together with teeth bleaching gel and mouth trays. Prior to making your home whitening kit, we will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and oral health in order to select the very best whitening strength and formula. For mouth trays, you can choose to have impressions taken of your teeth so custom trays could be produced, but it will take longer to get them. Meanwhile, we provide professional dental trays that can be used immediately. Once your kit is ready, we will talk you through the specific instructions needed for each treatment, for example, how long and how often to use your kit.
what should I expect after teeth whitening at home?
Final results will be based on the strength of the whitening solution, your initial enamel color, and how many times you use your whitening treatment. When you reach your desired shade, you can stop using your at-home kit. To maintain your results, you should keep a good oral hygiene routine and make lifestyle changes, including staying away from staining foods, beverages, and tobacco products. Furthermore, you should schedule bi-annual cleanings at Chestnut Hill Dental where stains can be polished away, as well as annual dental exams so our team can check on your overall oral health. You need to keep your whitening trays clean and in a safe place, so if you wish to restart your treatment, you would only need to purchase more whitening gel.
will insurance cover teeth bleaching?
Home teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure, which means it is usually not covered by dental insurance. In your initial consultation, a member of our financial team can talk about your cost estimates based on your options, go over payment methods we accept and provide information on low-interest medical financing.
