Posted by LEMON TREE DENTISTRY, LLC on Feb 25 2020, 11:04 PM

A beautiful smile is considered as a prominent asset in society and profession. Many people are just not happy with their smile, and the most common reason might be discolored teeth. Before going for any over-the-counter teeth whitener, you should talk to your dentist first.

Find out if whitening will work for you

Most of the teeth whitening kits contain chemicals that help in breaking down stains in your tooth enamel, i.e., to remove surface stains. This kind of tooth whitening cannot remove the tooth discoloration caused by chemical stains from tetracycline antibiotics, trauma, or enamel defects.

Avoid damaging of tooth 

Most of the teeth whitening products, if used according to directions, are safe for your teeth. But not all of them because some of them work using abrasive particles that scrape away stains and also the outer layers of your teeth. This will end up damaging your teeth and even making your teeth more discolored. So, get advice from your dentist who will offer you safe products.

Control sensitivity

Teeth whitening products has this side effect of teeth sensitivity. As along with the stain removal, they also open up little tubes in the teeth making the interior of the tooth exposed, which hurt them. When the dentist performs teeth whitening, the whitener can be redeveloped to block tubules and reduce sensitivity as well.

Get better results

Dentists have better and more powerful teeth whiteners than over-the-counter kits. The problem with teeth whitening kits is that you have to get it right without the dentist’s help. If not used properly, whiteners can give uneven results leaving discolored sections on your teeth.

Get faster results

In professional teeth whitening, the dentist uses the stronger teeth whitening compounds that make your teeth whiter, also giving faster results. Sometimes you might get great results with just a single visit to the dentist.
