It’s understandable that you may have a few questions about teeth whitening. For example, you may wonder whether or not your teeth are suitable for teeth whitening. During your first visit with Dr. Wendy Willoughby, DDS, we will look at your teeth and look at your gums to make sure that both are healthy.
Teeth whitening gels are powerful by nature. So it’s important to make sure that your teeth are strong enough to be able to handle the treatment. If your teeth aren’t strong enough, using a professional-strength teeth whitening gel could damage them.
Another thing to take into consideration when determining whether or not to get your teeth whitened is if you have crowns or veneers. Sometimes people have dental work done that they forget about. That’s one of the reasons why we are going to look at your teeth to see if there was any dental work that has been done. Based on the dental work you had done, we will be able to give you the best options for the whitest teeth possible.
Getting a professional cleaning before getting your teeth whitened is a great idea. When you get your teeth professionally cleaned, a dental hygienist can get rid of any junk that has built up around your teeth and prepare your teeth to get the greatest benefits from a teeth whitening session.
Many ask how white their teeth will get. The truth is that everyone’s teeth are different. You can compare teeth whitening to suntanning. Some people just need to step out in the sun for a few seconds and they are golden brown. Others need to spend a lot of time in the sun to get just a little bit of color. It all depends on the unique case.
