Our Moreno Valley, CA practice would like to remind you that in just about every case, you will eventually become a candidate to receive care for a whiter smile. However, particularly if you are looking to qualify for teeth whitening, there are instances in which you may feel ready but that it won’t be time just yet. As mentioned, you will certainly be able to get there if you follow our advice! However, for the time being, your Moreno Valley dentist would like to explain some of these possible moments, so you’re prepared for them (just in case), and so you remember that a whiter grin is certainly still on the horizon.

#1: You Haven’t Seen Us Yet

Maybe you really want teeth whitening and you’ve decided that coming in to see your Moreno Valley dentist is how you’d like to receive cosmetic care! However, you may be a brand new patient or we haven’t actually sat down with you to discuss cosmetic treatments just yet. In that case, you’re going to have to first come in for a cosmetic consultation. Then, we can be certain that you are ready for whitening and discuss the best time for you to schedule it!

#2: You Need To Fix A Smile Problem

One very common reason it may not be time for teeth whitening just yet but it will be soon? You have a smile problem that needs fixing. This could be a cavity, a cracked tooth, an infection, or just about anything else requiring any level of restorative care. Get your oral health where it needs to be and then your Moreno Valley dentist will be ready to say yes to cosmetic care!

#3: We’re Suggesting Other Care First

Maybe you know that you want a whiter smile and you are definitely a candidate for teeth whitening, which your Moreno Valley dentist has verified with you. However, maybe you need something else first. Perhaps you’re planning on receiving Invisalign treatment or braces and it might be to your benefit to wait until after your smile is aligned! Perhaps you are planning on other cosmetic care, etc., and waiting just makes sense. It may be just a little frustrating but remember that taking your dental care one step at a time is always to your benefit!
