Some people may find that brushing and flossing alone are not enough to keep their teeth white. Teeth can change color over time due to staining which results from drinking certain beverages, using tobacco, medication, aging and trauma. When this happens it will be necessary to visit a dentist for professional treatment.
Benefits of Teeth Whitening
One of the greatest benefits of teeth whitening is its versatility and the numerous options which are available. Because teeth can change color for many reasons, multiple procedures have been developed by dentists to whiten them. For instance, bleaching is excellent for teeth which have become yellow, but won’t work as well on teeth which are brown. Compared to many dental procedures, the cost for teeth whitening is also low.
Teeth Whitening | FAQ
Does teeth whitening have any side effects?
Teeth whitening is a safe procedure, but some patients who undergo it may have tooth sensitivity. This results from the peroxide within the whitener entering the enamel and reaching the softer layer which is called dentin. Once this happens the nerves of the tooth will become irritated. However, this effect is only temporary, and should subside relatively quickly. The teeth should also not be whitened too much, or the gums and enamel may be damaged. During and after this procedure it is important to follow the instructions of your dentist.
What is the difference between professional teeth whitening and home treatments?
Treatments used to whiten teeth at home will consist of things such as toothpaste and whiteners that contain peroxide. The toothpaste will consist of mild abrasives while the whitener typically comes in the form of a gel that can be placed over the teeth via a tray. For some patients home treatment is enough to whiten their teeth, but for those who are not getting the results they want chairside bleaching is more effective because it involves a higher concentration of bleach, but must be performed by a dentist as it requires considerable skill and specialized equipment.
Can teeth whitening be used for all types of teeth?
No, and it is important to make an appointment with your dentist to determine if you’re a good candidate for this treatment. Tooth discoloration can occur for many reasons, and the treatment which works for one patient may not be effective for another.
About the Procedure
