Is Teeth Whitening for You?
Many people who consider teeth whitening have realised that they have developed discoloration of their teeth due to a variety of reasons.
Stains develop simply from aging, from the natural build up of organic pigments over time, trauma to the teeth, coffee, tea, smoking, or extended use of medications during the development of the teeth. A variety of tooth whitening procedures available today that allow just about anyone who wishes to brighten their smile, the chance to do just that and to look younger and feel better about themselves.
Is Bleaching a Good Option?
Patients who have sensitive teeth should consider using the milder solutions for tooth whitening, since the higher strength solutions used in cosmetic dentistry can, in some cases cause increased sensitivity. In addition, patients who have very thin teeth may find that the bleaching techniques, while they may lighten the teeth, may show more of a grey translucency after the bleaching. Patients considering tooth whitening who have multiple crowns or white fillings on their front teeth should know that these types of restorations will not bleach with the materials available and as a result, they might need to consider the future costs of replacing crowns, having veneers or replacing the white fillings in their front teeth.
How Long before I Notice the Difference?
The simple answer is, it depends! Everyone responds a little differently and any good cosmetic dentist will treat you as an individual and make sure that the treatment plan is tailored to your unique needs. That say you should see clear improvements in most cases within a few days. Naturally those undertaking tooth whitening when they have more significant staining than normal may need repeated treatments and improvements may take longer as a result.
