Do You Fade Into the Background?
Starting with Thanksgiving and into the new year, your social calendar fills up quickly. There are so many people to see and things to do. Along with all the family gatherings and parties comes the photo ops. You’re busy rushing around checking things off your to-do list. But you forgot something.
You forgot how uncomfortable you feel when it’s time to take pictures. Let’s face it. If you don’t like your smile, you’ll find every reason to fade into the background when the cameras are flashing.
Professional teeth whitening can change that feeling for you. Enjoy your enhanced appearance because your smile is brighter. Your confidence is boosted because you feel better about yourself. You find yourself smiling more frequently. As a result, you seem friendlier and more approachable. Also, a brighter smile can make you appear several years younger.
Advantages of Professional Teeth Whitening
Dental professionals know that an oral exam is necessary before any whitening process. It’s essential to know if there are any underlying dental conditions requiring treatment. Pregnant or lactating women and children under 16 are not advised to have teeth whitening. Also, tooth-colored fillings and other dental restorations such as crowns and veneers do not whiten.
As a dental professional, I can advise you if the discoloration of your teeth is from an underlying factor that’s unresponsive to whitening treatment. Some stains that appear on the teeth are caused by the food and beverages we consume. Other stains originate from inside the tooth, which may be hard to remove or not respond to whitening treatment.
Professional Strength Products
Whitening products sold in stores contain a small amount of whitening agent, usually 3 percent hydrogen peroxide. It may provide results for patients with light stains on their teeth but not for those with heavier staining. Dental professionals use professional-strength whitening agents only available to dentists.
With in-office whitening treatments, your soft tissues are properly protected and the whitening gel is uniformly applied for optimal results. For take-home products, custom-fitted whitening trays and professional-grade whitening agents are provided.
