Teeth Whitening Facts You Need

dca-blog_teeth-whitening-two-women-pointing

If your teeth are looking yellow, and it’s diminishing your self-confidence, there’s no reason to suffer any longer. Teeth whitening systems can solve the problem of stained or yellow teeth caused by lifestyle habits or age. Unfortunately, competing manufacturers and confusing claims can make choosing a teeth whitening product difficult. While there is a wide array of at-home treatments available that promise to lighten stains over time, you can achieve fast and dramatic results by consulting your dentist in Fayetteville and scheduling a professional in-office whitening treatment.

If you’re not familiar with the teeth bleaching whitening process, here are four common questions and answers to help sort out the confusion.

1.     Does teeth whitening have side effects? 



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.

2.     Will I get better results with in-office teeth whitening?

In-office, professional teeth whitening systems contain bleaching agents that are much stronger than those in over-the-counter products, 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 Fayetteville will work closely with you to achieve the results you desire.

3.     What treatment 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.

4.     How long will my teeth stay white? 



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.
