Teeth whitening is one of the easiest ways to improve your smile in Wetaskiwin. It is quick, reasonably-priced, and non-invasive. Though some Wetaskiwin cosmetic dentistry patients experience short-term sensitivity, most experience no tooth whitening pain at all.
If you have looked into teeth whitening options, you probably already know the basics. The one thing they have in common is that they use a solution containing peroxide to remove the stains that have settled in the natural microscopic cracks in your tooth enamel.
There are many DIY teeth bleaching products available in Camrose and it seems like new ones appear every time you visit the toothpaste aisle at your Wetaskiwin grocery or Ponoka drug store.
These tooth whitening strips and tooth whitening pens can sometimes whiten your teeth a few shades, but the peroxide concentration is much lower than the whitening solutions used in Wetaskiwin cosmetic dental offices. It may not be dynamic enough for your tooth stains.
Teeth whitening offered at mall kiosks is risky, also. Most of these teeth whitening businesses have no professional oversight and the employees have little dental training. We recommend steering clear of these businesses.
Tim Mahoney recommends that you use extreme caution when considering a take-home Wetaskiwin tooth whitener. If you have tooth decay, gum recession, crowns, or veneers, you definitely need professional guidance.
The portion of your teeth below the gumline, if exposed, may respond differently to tooth whitener. Furthermore, the peroxide solution does not noticeably whiten crowns and veneers. If you use a DIY tooth whitener on teeth with extensive porcelain restorations, you should probably hope it doesn’t whiten too much – you may end up with a two- or three-tone smile!
Even though teeth whitening seems uncomplicated, your teeth deserve a professional opinion. After all, we are talking about teeth here. You can’t fix an uneven teeth whitening result like you can a bad hair-coloring job.
