Is Teeth Whitening Safe?

Are you tired of dull, yellow teeth? You do not have to hide your smile anymore. Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that can restore your beautiful teeth and dazzling smile. Isn’t it time you showed off those pearly whites?

 

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Cosmetic dentistry offers teeth whitening, which is a simple procedure. Bleaches, mainly hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, are used to break stains into smaller pieces, making the color less concentrated and your teeth brighter.

 

Is Teeth Whitening Safe?

Recent research has shown that teeth whitening is a safe and effective procedure. There are products available today that have shown no harmful effects on teeth and gums in clinical and laboratory testing. Your dentist will provide you with treatments using clinically proven products that will give you your sparkling teeth without harming them.

It is safest to whiten your teeth at a dental office rather than spas, salons, or at home. Your dentist will conduct an exam before the treatment to make sure there are no broken or decayed teeth. If your teeth are naturally sensitive, your dentist may recommend a fluoride treatment a few days before the procedure.

 

Is it Right for Me?

Teeth whitening does not work for all types of discoloration. Yellow teeth respond well, but brown teeth may not be as responsive to whitening treatments. Grey tones will not bleach at all. Teeth whitening does not work on caps, veneers, crowns, or fillings. It will not have a bleaching effect on tooth coloration caused by medication or a tooth injury.
