Tooth whitening is a procedure which can lighten your tooth colour by several shades. This will lead to whiter teeth in comparison to your original teeth.
The Teeth whitening is beneficial for many people and it seems the individuals who benefit most are those with mild to moderate discolouration. It is important to note that certain types of discolouration do not benefit from whitening, as well as certain dental work, and medical conditions, thus reducing the effectiveness of this procedure. These include:
- Porcelain or composite resin veneers, dental crowns, fillings and dental bondings on the front teeth. Synthetic materials do not respond to bleaching products
- Teeth with gray tones, white spots or discoloration from a tooth injury
- Tooth whitening is not effective for discoloration resulting from medications
If you have any of the above issues, we suggest consulting with one of our dentists before scheduling for whitening.
A major benefit of whitening your teeth under dental professional care is that you significantly reduce the risk of damage to the tooth enamel, gums and teeth structure that other non-dental professional whitening treatments may result in. Receiving teeth whitening from a professional ensures you are getting legitimate products from reputable suppliers and that is it completed by highly qualified and skilled staff. This will reduce the likelihood of complication.
