Teeth Whitening Honeoye Falls, NY
It's the foods and drinks we enjoy most that are mainly responsible for staining our teeth. It is, however, these stains that teeth whitening can most easily remedy.
Over-the-counter treatments can make a lot of promises regarding results, but none of them can be as rapidly effective, or as safe, as in-office professional teeth whitening.
The bleaching agents employed by both can damage the gums, so it's a procedure best overseen by a professional. In the office, your gums will be protected throughout, which means that a stronger solution can be used.
Is the Procedure Right for You?
While teeth whitening can radically transform the color of your teeth, the treatment will not be effective on crowns or veneers. But if a veneer is stained enough your dentist may suggest replacing it. Though often a professional dental cleaning may be enough to make these look like new.
The same advice applies to the rest of your teeth if you have not been in for a dental cleaning, or a checkup, in a long time. A beautiful smile begins with a healthy smile.
Teeth that are discolored because of damage, or as a result of taking certain types of medication, may also not respond to teeth whitening. But your dentist can advise you on alternative treatments.
