Will You Benefit From Professional Teeth Whitening?
Regular brushing and flossing helps maintain a healthy smile, but even if you practice good dental hygiene you may notice your teeth don’t look as white as they used to. In-office teeth whitening can enhance your smile greatly. As you age your teeth naturally begin to yellow, especially if you regularly drink coffee, tea, wine, or any beverage known to stain tooth enamel. If you smoke or use tobacco products your teeth are also at risk for yellowing faster, in which case professional bleaching can be very valuable.
Professional teeth bleaching can give you back the smile you once loved; in fact our in-house whitening procedure can whiten your teeth up to an incredible 7 shades.
The Teeth Whitening Process
You might be wondering how the teeth whitening process works. First, your teeth will be cleaned of all debris, including between each tooth, on the surface, and hard to reach places. To further prep your teeth for the whitening process, a pre exam may be necessary to make sure that your teeth are healthy enough to undergo dental bleaching. Photos may also be taken to track the changes before and after your whitening treatment. Tooth bleaching is a pain-free cosmetic dental procedure that has highly evolved to be easier on your teeth, gums, and mouth than ever before.
Professional Teeth Whitening Vs. At Home Teeth Whitening Kits
You want a brighter, whiter smile but you are concerned about the cost of in-office professional teeth whitening. Before you go out and purchase an at-home whitening kit, beware that this might not save you any money at all. While some whitening kits are sold for affordable prices, they come with their fair share of drawbacks, which might end up costing you more in the long run.
For one, these kits can cause serious tooth sensitivity because they actually strip away your tooth’s enamel, the top layer of protection your teeth need to keep cavity-free and strong. Also, at-home kits cannot produce the same results as having your teeth whitened by a dentist. For darker stains, or stains that have been stuck on for years, an at-home kit is not going to provide the results you desire. It can be more cost effective to have your teeth whitened by a dentist, simply because the results are much better and the associated risks lower.
Professional teeth whitening can transform even the yellowest of smiles, but there are certain stains that teeth bleaching cannot always remove.
Instances when teeth bleaching may not work include:
- If your tooth has been through extensive trauma so that the dentin has darkened
- If your teeth have inorganic stains.
- If your teeth have been overexposed to fluoride
- If you took Tetracycline antibiotics during the formation of your teeth
Before you let disappointment sink in, there is always a dental solution to enhance the appearance, and health, of your teeth. Dr. Trachtenberg will work with you one-on-one to uncover the best route of action for you and your oral health.
