Is teeth whitening safe?

It’s often said that the first thing people notice about you is your smile and who doesn’t love having an attractive white pearly smile. Many people wish their teeth were whiter, but as we age teeth naturally darken & their appearance can be affected by the accumulation of surface stains acquired from the use of tobacco products and the consumption of certain foods or drinks. Although teeth are not naturally meant to be completely white, it’s not strange that many of us want a brighter smile. Whiter teeth and a brighter smile can make us feel better & confident about ourselves.

Responding to this desire, a wide range of “whitening” options are available today.

Although teeth whitening techniques have been well evaluated over the years many of us are still about the effects of teeth whitening. One of the most curious questions is:

Is teeth whitening safe? Is teeth whitening bad, does it work?

If you are considering it and want to determine if it’s safe. The first step is to visit your dentist for an oral assessment. Discussing with your dentist allows you to access treatment monitored by a professional. Not only this you can also be rest assured that you will receive the result you have searching for.

Teeth whitening with the hand of a professional can help you achieve the result boost your self-confidence through achieving the bright white smile you want.

In-office whitening can achieve the results you want much faster than at-home systems and are generally regarded as the safest form of bleaching. Your dentist will be able to monitor your teeth and gums to prevent any complications during the process. Additionally, undergoing an in-office teeth-whitening treatment helps to kill bacteria that may cause gum disease or tooth decay. You’ll leave the office with a bright white smile that looks and feels clean.

As with any whitening process, there is always a risk of incurring tooth and gum sensitivity after treatment. However, professional teeth whitening is safer because the entire procedure is supervised by the dentist.

Does teeth whitening work?

This entirely depends on the treatment and your teeth as hygiene, genetics and past dental work can all make a huge difference. One example is; whitening doesn’t work on crowns or veneers. Keep in mind that everyone’s teeth are different, and the effectiveness of teeth whitening will vary from person to person.

How long does teeth whitening last?

We all know that teeth whitening is not permanent. On average teeth whitening can last up to 2-3 years. This being said long term results depends greatly on individual care and habits.

People who expose their teeth to foods and beverages that cause staining may see the whiteness start to fade sooner than that of people who take care and avoid food & beverages that cause stains in the teeth. There are no doubts that the degree of whiteness will vary from individual to individual depending on the condition of the teeth, the level of staining, and the type of bleaching system used.

Regular visits to the dentist and a healthy diet helps to maintain the white bright smile.
