White teeth are the cornerstone of a beautiful smile. As a result, teeth whitening is the most popular procedure in cosmetic dentistry. Although stores have shelves full of at-home whitening treatments to try, the safest, quickest and most effective way to whiten your teeth is by working with our dental team.
Here are some things to know regarding teeth whitening:
- Your Dental Associates dentistry team will examine your mouth and consider your complete medical and dental history when helping you decide if whitening is a good treatment for you. Your dentist will consider the types of stains you have on your teeth, as well as the number and location of previous restorations such as crowns and bridges
- Whitening your teeth can cause increased tooth sensitivity, especially if applied excessively or improperly. Your Dental Associates dentist will take any pre-existing sensitivity issues into consideration when prescribing the best treatment for you
- Our team is very experienced in applying teeth whitening products properly, which will reduce the risk of adverse reactions or treatment issues
- After your treatment, you may have a follow-up visit to ensure its success
Teeth whitening is a brilliant improvement to your smile. To ensure long-term success, we recommend that patients who receive whitening treatment avoid beverages such as coffee, tea and dark wine, as they can stain teeth again after treatment.
