Get the Facts About Professional Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in dentistry. A gleaming, white smile is the aesthetic ideal, but lifestyle habits and age can cause teeth to yellow and accumulate stains. Various over-the-counter teeth whitening products are available and easy to use, but professional whitening procedures provide more dramatic results in less time. With so much buzz about teeth bleaching/whitening options, it can be hard to separate truth from fiction. Here are a few answers that can help clear things up.

Does Teeth Whitening Cause Side Effects? 



Teeth bleaching whitening agents can cause tooth and gums to become temporarily sensitive. Your dentist in Temple Terrace can help minimize sensitivity by ensuring that the right concentration of whitening formula and any available preventative measures are used. Some whitening systems incorporate desensitizing ingredients such as amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP) and potassium nitrate to minimize treatment-related discomfort. Brushing with toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth several weeks prior to your whitening appointment may also help. Dentist management and prevention of sensitivity is a major benefit of choosing in-office treatment rather than over-the-counter products.

How Does In-Office Whitening Produce Better Results?

Professional teeth whitening systems contain bleaching agents that are much stronger than those contained in over-the-counter kits, so dramatic results in a shorter time period are possible. Some systems produce maximum whitening in only one visit. Results vary from patient to patient, and factors such as product brand and type, treatment times, and the level of discoloration present all affect the outcome. Your dentist will work closely with you to achieve the results you desire.

How Long Do Results Last? 



Your genetics and personal dental care habits affect how long your teeth will stay white after treatment, but in general, you can expect results to last for a year or longer.

How Can I Get the Best Teeth Whitening Results? 



The best way to get optimal results from your whitening treatment is to discuss your needs and concerns with your dentist. Together with your dental team, you can get the brilliant smile you want in a way that fits your schedule and your budget.
