Teeth Whitening – Your Best Options

dca-blog_teeth-whitening-two-women-pointing

A bright, beautiful smile conveys youth, good health, happiness, and warmth. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry found that more than 99 percent of adults believe their smiles are important social assets. Most people consider a great smile more appealing to the opposite sex, and as many as 75 percent feel that an unattractive smile can decrease their chances of career success. The most common improvement desired is whiter teeth, and teeth whitening procedures are the most simple and economical way to obtain a more radiant smile.

As you age, your teeth become darker or yellower and may accumulate stains. Your baby teeth were probably whiter than your adult teeth, so this may be why brighter, whiter teeth make people seem younger. The primary causes of external tooth discoloration are genetics, certain foods, tobacco use, and normal aging. Foods associated with tooth yellowing include tea, coffee, carrots, and oranges. Internal tooth discoloration may be caused by exposure to high levels of fluoride, tetracycline use, developmental disorders, root canals, tooth decay, dental restorations, and injuries. The most common teeth whitening techniques are over-the-counter whitening products and professional, in-office teeth bleaching whitening treatments:

Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening Products: Do-it-yourself treatment kits are available without a prescription in retail stores. These include teeth whitening strips, paint-on gel formulas, and whitening oral care products like toothpastes or gums. They’re typically safe, but it’s best to consult your dentist or hygienist before use. Professional teeth whitening procedures are performed in a dental office and involve stronger and more effective whitening agents. They can often transform the look of your smile in one visit. The effects of an in-office treatment may last for a year or longer with maintenance. 



In-Office Professional Teeth Whitening Treatment: When you choose an in-office treatment, you enjoy several advantages. Professional supervision makes the teeth whitening process safer and more effective. Your dentist can ensure that your mouth trays are fitted properly to avoid leaking. If you suffer from tooth sensitivity as a result of whitening agents, your dentist is best equipped to relieve your symptoms, and prevent worsening sensitivity without discontinuing treatment. Talk to your dentist about teeth whitening options today, and give your smile new life.
