Professional Advantages, Costs, and Options for Teeth Whitening

Before we get started on the advantage of having a professional whiten your teeth, let’s address why you would consider it being done. We all so often take things for granted. We surround ourselves with many creature comforts but many of us take for granted what we see in the mirror every morning. No matter who you are and what you do, you have one attribute that is all yours and you need to take care of it and value it. That would be your SMILE!

You’ve noticed a change in color

Three factors contribute your teeth becoming discolored and changing your smile. Either you’ve enjoyed your coffee, your red wine, a cola or even a glass of tea. There is the nicotine and tar delivered through that cigarette or pinch of chew. These things directly stain the outside layer of the tooth, the enamel. Now, there is the inside layer of the tooth, the dentin, that can change color due to some trauma in your life, or having taken antibiotics as a child. Decay can yellow the dentin, or root damage. Finally, you put both of those factors together, you get age. Yes, aging has its consequences.

Why consider a professional

A dentist can do a much better job than you yourself assessing the condition of your teeth. A dentist will do an assessment and then properly prep your teeth for the whitening process. This might be something as simple as a good cleaning, a gum assessment or determining the amount of staining and where your attainable goals will be. The dentist will use a very safe whitening agent and keep track of any negative effects to your gums as well as any increased sensitivity with your teeth. The risks are very minimal. Due to the fact that you are in a controlled environment versus your home, a stronger bleach will be used and the ensuing results will be noticed and documented quicker. IF you exceed your natural whiteness you have bleached your teeth. Hence a professional is aware of the natural goal in only whitening your teeth.

Moving forward

The minute you have your cup of coffee or partake in one of the other habits mentioned earlier, the staining will start again. The previous stain has been removed or diminished, but the natural process cannot be stopped from reoccurring. It is very likely that when you schedule your next appointment to have your teeth cleaned you may want to whiten again, or maybe every other appointment. You need to continue to brush well consistently and floss. All methods of sound oral hygiene. Your dental professional can give you those tips, those suggestions after having your teeth whitened to extend the life of your work. Whitening is a good value for men and women and fits into everyone’s budgets. The long and short of it is the teeth whitening works and worth every penny when it enhances that beautiful smile of yours! Bring that smile back today, consider having your teeth whitened.
