Issue at Hand: Is Teeth Whitening Healthy and Safe?
Teeth whitening treatment has been around the dental world for quite some time now. It has provided hope to people who have yellowed teeth caused by excessive smoking or love of caffeinated drinks like coffee, tea and soft drinks. Nevertheless one question still remains? Is it really safe for us to have our teeth whitened? How is teeth whitening done?
Teeth whitening are one of the many treatments available in cosmetic dentistry. It makes it possible for grayish teeth due to intake of certain antibiotics and natural pigmentation to lighten to up to two or three shades while allowing up to five shades lighter for teeth that got too much exposed to caffeine or cigarette stains. It is indeed a wonderful discovery in dentistry and something everyone is grateful about.
One of the techniques used in cosmetic dentistry is laser teeth whitening method which is commonly done in dental offices. This is highly recommended by cosmetic dentists if the teeth of the patient are highly sensitive and is done by isolating the gums and lips area of the patients before applying a bleaching gel on the teeth’s surface. A laser is used to further intensify and hasten the rate of the teeth whitening process.
Laser Teeth Whitening is not preferred by most professionals because of their busy lifestyle so some patients prefer using home teeth whitening treatments. For the home teeth whitening treatment to become successful, a cosmetic dentist will take your teeth’s imprint and create custom fit trays that you can use for the home whitening regimen. There are also a number of teeth bleaching packages which can be purchased over the counter but there is no guarantee that these formulations are safe and effective.
Teeth Whitening is proven safe and effective especially if it comes from your cosmetic dentist. Nevertheless, you may be at risk of enamel and other oral problems if you persistently use teeth whitening solutions which are not recommended by your dentist. It is always wise to allow professionals to handle any dental treatment to guarantee the best results.
