Why Teeth Whitening?
Coffee, tea, cola, wine – these are just some of the several joys of life that can leave a lasting mark on our smile. We should be able to appreciate these without worrying about yellow teeth. This is probably why every pharmacy and grocery store sells kits that promise to make our smile “two shades brighter.” These products vary in effectiveness, though, and can be dangerous if you have sensitive teeth.
What makes the dentist different?
A dentist can whiten your teeth professionally. It is a simple procedure, with the instruments and materials that they have available.
You should always visit your dentist before you decide to whiten your teeth. They are best able to determine if a traditional teeth whitening procedure will work for you. Everyone has different teeth and whitening results do vary from person to person, but a dentist can give you their professional opinion and give you the best chance for successful treatment.
