What is Teeth Whitening?

Everyone would love to have a smile that lives up to the phrase pearly whites. Unfortunately, over time, many factors contribute to teeth becoming discolored and stained. Choosing to invest in a teeth whitening treatment can leave you with the bright white smile you’ve been dreaming of.

There are different types of treatments. For instance, your dentist may apply gel to the surface of your teeth. Or you may have a tray of gel that you hold in your mouth for a specific amount of time. There are also teeth whitening strips, paint-on whiteners, whitening toothpaste and mouthwash, and more.

It is important to note that not all whitening treatments are the same. There are professional teeth whitening treatments that you can only get at your dentist - and then there are those that you buy over-the-counter in your local drugstore. If you are looking for an effective solution, then you will want the treatment offered by your dentist. It is not only safe, but the results are immediate - and stunning.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Walking around with a beautifully white smile from professional teeth whitening can come with more benefits than you probably realized.

  • Whitening that is even and thorough (as opposed to over-the-counter results)
  • Increased confidence
  • Overall enhanced experience
  • Quick results
  • A boost to your mental health and overall wellbeing
  • Safe, monitored treatment

And, when you feel good about yourself, you normally take chances you wouldn’t otherwise
take. Which means a professional teeth whitening procedure may just change your life!

Do professional teeth whitening treatments hurt?

Many people have professional teeth whitening treatments without any side effects at all. However, it is possible to experience a little sensitivity following the procedure. This may last anywhere from a couple of minutes to a couple of days, but shouldn’t require anything more than over-the-counter pain medication.

Can yellow teeth turn white again with professional treatment?

Believe it or not - yes! Yellow teeth can turn white again with the use of professional teeth whitening treatments. Your dentist can help you determine the best solution for your particular teeth.

Is it safe to whiten your teeth?

Teeth whitening products are safe for your teeth. Professional treatments should be used only under the care and attention of an experienced dentist. The over-the-counter variety has a much lower concentration of effective ingredients making it safe to use on your own, but also not as effective.

Does teeth whitening damage your tooth enamel?

No, teeth whitening does not damage your tooth enamel.
