Your teeth may be stained because of:
Whatever the reason, tooth whitening or bleaching is among the most typical treatments to recover or attain that dream smile you’ve always desired.
Tooth whitening is usually done using readily available whitening products such as whitening toothpastes and results in making teeth a couple of shades lighter. On the other hand, tooth bleaching utilizes either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide (which is 1/3 as strong as hydrogen peroxide) and can make teeth three to eight shades lighter. For either of these approaches, we have the following options:
Tooth whitening should not be undertaken by children age 16 or below, pregnant or lactating females, and people with sensitive teeth or allergies. Tooth whitening is also not recommended for people with gum disease, worn enamel, exposed roots, and previous tooth repairs (such as fillings, crowns, and so on).
If you experience tooth sensitivity after a home or in-office whitening procedure, give your teeth a break by using toothpaste for sensitive teeth, or get in with the staff at Arbor View for a personal recommendation.
Last but not least, always remember to inspect to see if your chosen bleaching kit has been approved by the American Dental Association to guarantee that it is safe to use.
