Teeth whitening has been available for several years, but recently it has topped the list of cosmetic procedures. More and more patients are asking their dentists about teeth whitening and many are wondering if it has side effects or can damage teeth.
On the other hand, research shows that the demand for modern bleaching techniques is increasing by more than 300%, so some people can go straight for it without asking any questions. Well, here are the answers to some of the questions raised and some key facts that anyone considering cosmetic teeth whitening should know.
Dentists will not recommend treatment if they are not sure that it is safe and effective. Professional teeth whitening by dentists fall into this category and there is no doubt that it works. Besides, the result can be an absolute transformation, which is evidenced by the popularity of treatment. When your dentist does a teeth whitening, you can have a smile to be proud of in just a few hours. Or, you can take it yourself. Ask your dentist to make a tray for you and do this procedure yourself at home for a few weeks. You will need to be patient and make sure you complete a complete treatment plan, but in the end, you will be very happy with the results.
People choose to whiten their teeth for a more confident and attractive smile. White teeth look better, but unfortunately, all teeth are stained with food and drink. Over time, tea and coffee, as well as red wine, soft drinks, and food coloring, all contribute to discoloration. Some drugs can also cause discoloration, and smoker's teeth can remain stained permanently if left untreated. Brushing alone cannot heal a tooth that has been stained for several years. And often people whose teeth have had a bad discoloration can brush their teeth to remove stains that damage tooth enamel.
Teeth whitening whitens the color of your teeth to improve your appearance by reducing tooth discoloration through a brighter smile. The term "whitening" is misleading because the teeth are different colors and in fact, no one has white teeth. Teeth are different in color, and some people's teeth are naturally darker than others. The actual "discharge" that is achieved varies from patient to patient, but the result is always a tremendous improvement.
