Teeth Whitening – Separating Fact from Fiction

dca-blog_teeth-whitening-two-women-pointing

The number of devoted coffee drinkers and the universal desire to have a beautiful, bright smile makes teeth whitening one of the most popular dental procedures performed today. An almost overwhelming number of over-the-counter whitening products promise amazing outcomes over time, but powerful professional whitening systems are designed to deliver dramatic results fast. If you’re confused by the vast array of products and conflicting information and reviews, here are a few answers that should help to determine the best teeth whitening procedure for you.

Does Professional Teeth Whitening Produce Better Results?

In-office, professional teeth whitening systems contain bleaching agents that are much stronger than those contained in over-the-counter kits, so dramatic results in a shorter time period are possible. Some systems produce maximum whitening in only one visit. Results vary from patient to patient, and factors such as product brand and type, treatment times, and the level of discoloration present all affect the outcome. Your dentist in Atlanta will work closely with you to achieve the results you desire.

Are There Side Effects with Teeth Whitening? 



The whitening agents in teeth bleaching whitening systems can cause tooth and gums to become temporarily sensitive. Your dentist can help minimize sensitivity by ensuring that the right concentration of whitening formula and any available preventative measures are used. Some teeth whitening systems incorporate desensitizing ingredients such as amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP) and potassium nitrate to minimize treatment-related discomfort. Brushing with toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth several weeks prior to your whitening appointment may also help. Dentist management and prevention of sensitivity is a major benefit of choosing in-office treatment rather than over-the-counter products.

What Produces the Best Teeth Whitening Results? 



The best way to get optimal results from your whitening treatment is to discuss your needs and concerns with your dentist. Together with your dental team, you can get the brilliant smile you want in a way that fits your schedule and your budget.

How Long Do Results Last? 



Your genetics and personal dental care habits affect how long your teeth will stay white after treatment, but in general, you can expect results to last for a year or longer.
