Is Whitening Right For You?

Whitening your teeth has many benefits including a more confident, bright smile.  It can boost your confidence as well as make a positive impression.  It is important to first clean your teeth so you are not whitening teeth that may be covered in tartar. There are a few options when it comes to teeth whitening. Bleach is a common way to whiten your teeth. Bleach responds best to yellow colored teeth, and does not work as well with brownish colored teeth.

One of the risks of teeth whitening include tooth sensitivity. Your dentist can suggest ways to alleviate sensitivity by certain procedures and toothpastes aimed to treat sensitive teeth. If you want quicker and more reliable results, you should ask your dentist about in-office whitening or laser whitening. In-office whitening may require more than one visit to the dentist’s office. Results from a dentist-supervised whitening procedure can last anywhere from one to five years (depending on your eating, drinking or smoking habits).
