Do I Really Need Teeth Whitening?
Food, beverages, and tobacco can often lead to changing the color of your teeth, making them less white than normal. A simple cleaning may not be able to remove the long term effects of stains. In these instances, a teeth whitening program may be the best solution to getting your pearly white smile back.
Can Teeth Whitening Work for Me?
A wide variety of factors will influence the results of any whitening program. Dr. Buran will fully assess your personal situation and explain his proposed approach. Some teeth will not respond to whitening procedures. In these cases, other solutions, like dental veneers, bonding, or other options, may be neccessary to achieve the results you’re looking for.
Should I Try Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening Products?
An ADA-approved teeth whitening toothpaste may work well for mild staining. However, over-the-counter products contain lower-strength bleaching agents than what dentists use.
Does Professional Teeth Whitening Always Work?
Before beginning any treatment, Dr. Buran will fully assess your personal situation. Sometimes, professional teeth whitening can actually draw more attention to “problem” teeth. That’s why it’s important to plan the appropriate whitening treatment. Crowns and fillings, for example, don’t respond to the bleaching process like other teeth do.
