You might be thinking about whitening and brightening your smile. At Create a Smile, PC cosmetic dentistry in Bloomington, we can help you get the smile you deserve.
Teeth whitening is one of the easiest ways to improve your smile. It is quick, affordable, and non-invasive. Though some cosmetic dentistry patients experience short-term sensitivity, most experience no tooth whitening pain at all.
If you have looked into teeth whitening systems, you probably already know the essentials. The one thing they have in common is that they use a solution containing peroxide to remove the stains that have settled in the natural microscopic cracks in your tooth enamel.
There are many DIY teeth bleaching treatments available and it seems like new types appear every time you visit the toothpaste aisle at your grocery store.
These tooth whitening strips and tooth whitening pens can sometimes lighten your teeth a few shades, but the peroxide concentration is much lower than the whitening solutions used in cosmetic dental offices. It may not be effective enough for your tooth stains.
We recommend that you use extreme caution when considering a take-home tooth whitener. If you have cavities, gum recession, crowns, or veneers, you definitely need professional guidance.
Even though teeth whitening seems simple, your teeth deserve a professional opinion from a cosmetic dentist. After all, we are talking about your teeth here. You can’t fix an uneven teeth whitening result like you can a bad hair-coloring job.
