Am I a good candidate for teeth whitening treatment?
Professional teeth whitening is an easy and effective way to improve the appearance of your smile. Teeth that have been stained by smoking, certain food and drink, and natural yellowing due to aging can usually be dramatically improved with teeth whitening. However, teeth whitening cannot remove every type of stain or discoloration.
If you have very sensitive teeth and gums, we may need to use products designed to reduce sensitivity and keep you comfortable during teeth whitening treatment. Based on the level of your sensitivity, we can also make specific recommendation as far as frequency and length of treatment.
If you decide that you’d like to change the appearance of your smile with teeth whitening, we will be happy to take time to discuss your expectations and the causes of staining to help you decide if teeth whitening is the most appropriate solution for you. At this time we will also discuss other cosmetic dental treatment options so that you can make an informed decision.
Teeth whitening is very effective for many people, but it is not the best choice for everyone. Please contact our office to make an appointment for a dental cleaning, and we will be happy to assess your situation and make appropriate recommendations.
