The Truth About Teeth Whitening

An increasing trend in modern culture is ensuring that your teeth are glistening, white and bright. Aesthetically, this is becoming the norm, but it isn't always natural or easy to maintain a permanent white smile. If you are looking for a whiter smile, having your teeth professionally whitened could be the answer.

However, with home treatments on the rise, more people are attempting to do it themselves. There are limitations and risks to some home treatments so it is important to learn everything we can about the options. It is best to have this dental procedure done by a trained professional.

Why Should I Have My Teeth Professionally Whitened?

Teeth turn yellow or darken because of a variety of reasons. In some cases, it is from medication or health issues, but the most common cause is food and drinks that cause staining. Foods such as coffee and wine, as well as smoking, are some of the biggest culprits of tooth discoloration and getting your teeth whitened can help to combat this.

Professional whitening uses different materials and higher concentrations of bleaching solution than those allowed to be sold in over the counter home whitening kits. Because of this, better results are achieved with professional whitening.
