While many people are excited by the idea of showing off a brighter smile, they can run into problems when they try to make changes to the color of their teeth. Many individuals who look into addressing teeth stains try to make improvements with over the counter whitening products, but only see limited results. While these products can remove stains from the surface of your teeth, you need something stronger if you hope to remove stains that sit below the surface of your enamel. With a professional whitening treatment, it becomes possible to reach those staining particles that remain after using a store bought product. It should be noted that some forms of discoloration do not stem from stains, but from internal problems. Other cosmetic dental procedures can be more effective against these issues.
Choosing A Professional Whitening Treatment
Professional whitening treatments are remarkably effective thanks to the potent bleaching agents your dentist can provide. The effects of those gels can be seen in relatively little time thanks to special LED light-activated technology, which can speed up your treatment time. An additional benefit of professional teeth whitening treatments is that they oxidize your dentin. This is the surface under your enamel – improving its color will have a dramatic effect on your smile’s brightness.
Performing A Review To Determine The Nature Of Your Dental Discoloration
Your dentist will examine your smile before you undergo a whitening treatment, in an effort to determine the cause of your cosmetic woes. Why is this an important step? When patients come in looking to address a problem with discoloration that stems from internal tooth troubles, they can be disappointed by the effects of whitening agents. This problem, known as intrinsic discoloration, can be more effectively treated with something like the placement of porcelain veneers.
