Please Tell Me More about Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening removes stains and discoloration. You can whiten your teeth in many ways: over-the-counter products, in-office whitening, and take-home whitening kits. Over-the-counter products are the cheapest and convenient way to lighten your pearly whites. However, it takes a long period before you see the results.

The best way to brighten your smile is through in-office teeth whitening. This procedure is performed by a dentist. Before the procedure, examination and medical history will be taken to check if you’re a good candidate for the treatment.  Please be aware of the safety tips about teeth whitening, and take note that it is not recommended for everyone:

  • Children below 16 years old
  • Pregnant and lactating woman
  • People with sensitive teeth, allergies, and gum disease

Your dentist will evaluate if this treatment is right for you. This is one of the advantages of consulting a dentist before using any whitening products. Additionally, the dentist will apply a gel or use a rubber shield to protect your gums from the effects of the solution. It’s another protective measure, which you can’t get when you purchase an OTC product.

After the preparation, the gel is applied to the teeth. Some clinics use intense light to activate or enhance the whitening process.

Depending on the severity of your condition, the dentist will give you at-home teeth whitening kits. To keep your teeth white, you need to avoid:

  • Tea, coffee and wine
  • Sports drink and carbonated beverages
  • Strongly colored food
  • Smoking
