3 Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening

Having clean, glistening white teeth is certainly something to smile about! However, for many adults, years of staining caused by coffee, tea, smoking, and certain medications, can dull even the most perfect teeth. There are a number of products that claim to whiten the teeth in just a few days or even overnight. Although it may be tempting to try one of these methods on your own, the best choice is to seek the advice of your dentist. Here are 3 benefits you'll gain when choosing a dental professional to whiten your teeth:

1. Before beginning any whitening regime, it is advised that a thorough check-up by your dentist or dental hygienist take place. If untreated cavities or undetected cracks are present, efforts to whiten the teeth can exacerbate the problem. When a professional who is familiar with your individual situation takes care of the
whitening process, you'll have piece of mind in knowing that your dental health will not be jeopardized.

2. Sometimes the frequent use of over the counter whitening kits can cause the pores of the tooth enamel to open. This is due to the presence of oxygen radicals that are typically contained in stain removal products.  Avoid potential damage and pain by allowing your dental professional take care of brightening your smile!

3. Would you try to mix up your own paint color for your home or would you visit a paint store for assistance? Matching the subtle color variations in your teeth can be tricky. Due to individual tint differences in each of your teeth, it is quite difficult to get perfect results on your own. When a dental professional is able to employ the use of specialized lighting and magnification tools, you'll know that your whites match!
