According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, about 74 percent of adults believe that an unappealing smile can lower an individual's chance of career success, and almost 100 percent of adults believe that an appealing smile makes someone more attractive to the opposite sex. Many people feel self-conscious about their smile, especially about yellowness in the teeth. Walmart Supercenter offers teeth whitening services, so you can restore your confidence in your smile.

Traditional teeth whitening needs to be redone every few years, and you sometimes have to worry about stains from tea, coffee, wine, or other drinks. Walmart Supercenter provides teeth whitening treatment, which uses bleaching trays that fit over your bite and whiten your teeth over two weeks. With this treatment, you don't have to worry about getting the procedure redone again and again, and you can eat or drink whatever you want without fear of stains.

How Does The Treatment Work?

If you decide to receive the teeth whitening treatment, we will begin by taking impressions of your teeth. They will be used to create custom bleaching trays that fit perfectly over your teeth. The bleaching product will evenly coat your entire tooth surface.

You can wear the trays while you sleep. During your appointment, we will go over the steps for using the trays in detail, but you should expect to follow these steps before you go to sleep:

  • Brush and floss your teeth.
  • Apply the desensitizing solution
  • Rinse your mouth.
  • Apply the gel to the upper and lower bleaching trays.
  • Place both trays over your teeth.
  • Go to sleep.
  • After waking up, remove the trays.
  • Rinse your mouth, brush your teeth, and apply the desensitizing solution.
  • Clean and store the trays.

The teeth whitening solution will cleanse and rejuvenate your tooth enamel. The desensitizing solution stops the whitening solution from coming into contact with nerves, so it prevents sensitivity issues. With typical teeth whitening, the bleaching agents can penetrate the teeth and come into contact with the nerves, causing pain or discomfort.

How Long Does The Treatment Take?

It only takes 14 nights of wearing the trays while you sleep to complete the process. After two weeks of wearing the trays, you will visit Walmart Supercenter for a 90 minute follow-up procedure. During the visit, we will put the finishing touches on the teeth whitening process. This will ensure that your teeth will remain white and resist stains. You may have to do some simple maintenance treatments at home, but the treatment is permanent.
