When it comes to teeth whitening, most people are under-informed for good reason. The average person knows someone who has their teeth whitened yet he or she is a bit hesitant to have their own chompers whitened for various reasons. Some are hesitant to have bleaching agents added to their teeth while others worry their teeth will not match the hue they want.

Many people do not know much about teeth whitening. Our oral health professionals have all the information you could possibly need about this teeth beautification treatment.

Our Dentist’s Teeth Whitening Methods are Safe

The American Dental Association (ADA) approves of certain teeth whitening methods. Teeth whitening is a bleaching process that produces lovely-looking teeth. Though some at-home teeth whitening solutions have the potential to leak out onto the gums if misapplied, the teeth whitening performed at our dentist’s office is perfectly safe.

Each variety of teeth whitening has highly specialized bleaching ingredients that ameliorate the removal of stains stemming from food and beverages. The whitening process does not damage the teeth, gums or any other part of the mouth. The only caveat is pregnant women should refrain from teeth whitening until after they give birth.

Teeth whitening eliminates stains stemming from foods and beverages of all types. Teeth whitening at our office can effectively help to remove the superficial and deep stains.

Teeth Whitening is More Simple and Direct Than Most Patients Assume

Teeth whitening is accomplished by creating an impression of the teeth so whitening trays can suit the unique shape of your teeth. Have teeth whitening performed at your dentist’s office and you can walk on out with beautiful teeth in an hour or two. There might be a bit of sensitivity yet there is no other potential drawback to this approach to teeth beautification.

Teeth Whitening can Lead to Sensitivity

Teeth whitening has the potential to cause sensitivity in teeth as well as the gums. Though this sensitivity will not be egregiously painful, you might experience slight irritation. If your teeth feel sensitive following teeth whitening, try an over-the-counter product to mitigate the sensation.

Teeth Might Whiten to Different Degrees

For the most part, teeth whitening produces uniform results yet we would be remiss not to mention the possibility of slight alterations in hue. In some cases, teeth will not whiten to the same shade. As noted above, crowns and replacement teeth are not affected by teeth whitening agents. Receding gums and sensitivity to cold can also alter the whitening process.

Teeth Whitening Only Works for Real Teeth

Teeth whitening does not work on crowns, dentures, veneers, fillings or other dental restorations. Teeth whitening only works on natural teeth. Fillings and crowns will stay the same color even after the whitening solution is applied.
