The Truth about Teeth Whitening
You may have heard rumors about the safety of teeth whitening or the side effects it can cause. Some people experience sensitivity and tenderness when they whiten their teeth, especially using over-the-counter products.
The truth is that when you whiten your teeth under the supervision of a dentist, you achieve more comfortable, predictable, and exceptional results. For most people, teeth whitening is completely safe and has very few side effects.
Before we begin, we will ask you questions about your medical history to help you determine the type of teeth whitening system that will work best for you. We can talk about any existing conditions such as sensitivity or periodontal disease and address those, as well.
Safe Teeth Whitening Treatments
You can feel completely confident that we would never recommend treatment that would put your health in jeopardy.
Did you know that you will have better results when you whiten completely clean teeth? Because the whitening gel will come into direct contact with your teeth, instead of with the plaque and tartar that has accumulated, you will have better results, and will not waste your valuable whitening gel.
If we think you could benefit from a dental cleaning before you begin whitening, we will let you know. We want to make sure you have outstanding results and achieve a whiter smile in a shorter period of time.
At our Hazelwood, MO dental office, we offer three types of professional whitening. We offer in-office whitening for those patients who want the best results fast. We offer custom take-home whitening for those patients who have a little more time and want to whiten in the comfort of their homes. We also offer prefilled disposable whitening systems that allow you to whiten without having dental impressions or having to clean your trays afterward. You simply toss them in the trash when you are done.
