What are the best teeth whitening options?

Discolored teeth can make anyone feel self-conscious as they can give the impression that your teeth are not clean. Clients’ who have received whitening treatments have said that they feel more confident and have received many compliments on their smile.

It is important to remember that everyone’s teeth are different, and a single method of tooth whitening treatment will not work for every client. The level of discoloration, the persons’ lifestyle, and the health of the clients’ teeth and gums will play a role when choosing the right teeth whitening procedure.

For those with damaged teeth, teeth whitening procedures may cause more harm. Therefore, it is best to visit a professional dentist who can advise you on the best whitening treatment for your teeth.

If you are considering whitening your teeth, here is what professional dentists recommend.

Teeth whitening will not work on some cosmetic dentistry procedures – Teeth whitening treatments will not work for those who have crowns, fillings, bonding, or veneers, as these parts will not whiten. This means that these areas will have to be worked on separately.

For those with mild staining opt for removing surface stains– Lifting of surface stains can be performed by a dental hygienist. However, this process will only whiten your teeth by 1-2 shades. It is also a good idea to see a dental hygienist before any whitening procedure as they will remove some staining and plaque, preparing your teeth for your whitening procedure.

For a whiter smile opt for professional teeth whitening – Professional teeth whitening procedures will remove stains and offer a brighter smile, without damaging your enamel or your gums. These procedures will involve custom dental trays that will need to be applied with bleaching agents. Depending on the level of staining, you will be given an allocated time to wear your trays. Most clients will achieve their desired result in 10-14 days.

To improve the shape and color of your smile opt for Veneers – Veneers are an excellent option for those who are looking at whitening and changing the shape of their teeth without wearing braces. Dentists will place veneers over your natural teeth, whitening, and reshaping your smile.
