Do you want your teeth to be whiter? Whitening of teeth is universally desirable and accepted well around the world. It is the most conservative and economical option of improving your smile and self esteem.
There are almost no side effects to this process if the whitening is carried out properly. There can however be too much whitening. A good rule to gauge an adequate white is to match to the shade of white in the eyes.
Some patients also experience sensitivity following whitening but this usually goes away within a few days.
Some tooth shades respond better to whitening than others do.
Discoloration due to a pulp breakdown does respond initially to whitening but the discoloration tends to return over time.
Internal tooth discolorations during tooth development in childhood can often be lightened with some degree of success.
Florosis (excessive floride) can be resistant to significant shade changes but can be aided by whitening
Staining of teeth from a diet comprised of dark color foods such as coffee, tea or chocolate is very easily removed.
Discolorations as a result of aging also noticeably respond to whitening.
Options for teeth whitening:
Cost is moderate for both the options.
A wide range of whitening products are available over the counter (OTC) that produce varying degrees of results. Some work better than others and depend on the degree and the nature of discoloration. In general, OTC products are less effective than the dentist supervised products. Do seek dental professional guidance in selecting the best OTC whitening products to help maintain a shade that blends with your natural teeth and dental restorations. OTC products however, do not have the predictability of professional whitening.
Some degree of whitening is reversed within days of the whitening procedure and stabilizes within a couple of weeks and only slowly progresses towards a darker color overtime. The whitening process may need to be repeated within a year and sometimes months.
