Teeth Whitening

According to studies, professional teeth whitening is not only the most effective solution to brightening and whitening teeth, but, it is also the safest.

Teeth Whitening Procedures

Teeth whitening procedures have increased in popularity over the past several years. While home oral health care regimen activities such as brushing, flossing, and using mouth wash may help keep the teeth bright, healthy, and free from discoloration, there are still many that feel as if their smile is lacking the luster that they desire.

Recently, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry conducted a survey and asked what people would do to improve the appearance of their smile, and most responded with whitening their teeth. The agency known as the American Association of Orthodontists have confirmed that approximately 90% of all patients request professional teeth whitening services.

Professional Teeth Whitening

According to studies, professional teeth whitening is not only the most effective solution to brightening and whitening teeth, but, it is also the safest. In most instances, a specialized bleaching solution is used to remove stains and discolored debris from the teeth.

The solution may or may not be used in conjunction with a special light or heating device. If a special device is used, the results are nearly always instant and highly dramatic. At-home teeth whitening products include strips, gels, toothpastes, and trays.

Unfortunately, when not done professionally, these treatments could result in enamel complications and high levels of sensitivity. If you want to keep your teeth white, your smile at its best, and do not want to experience any oral health problems or discomfort, you should only have professional teeth whitening performed under the direction of a dental professional.

Effectiveness

Professional teeth whitening is highly effective. Different-colored stains respond to different types of bleaches, heating products, and lights. This is one of the main reasons why this should only be pursued under the direction of a dentist.

It is also important to understand that certain types of dental products – such as crowns, fillings, caps, and/or veneers – will not be affected by teeth whitening products. In other words, they will remain the same color.

Furthermore, the underlying cause of the stains and/or discoloration of the teeth must be evaluated prior to determining what type of whitening should be performed, or if whitening will assist at all.
