Know Your Teeth Whitening Options

A bright, healthy smile can do wonders for your self-esteem. If lifestyle habits like smoking or drinking tea or coffee daily have stained your teeth, you may find that brushing and having your teeth cleaned isn’t enough. Both at-home and professional teeth whitening treatments can help diminish stains, and give you back your youthful, bright smile. You have several teeth whitening techniques and systems to consider, but it’s best to talk to your dentist first, and find out which types of treatments are best suited for you.

Is Teeth Bleaching/Whitening Right for Me?

Some types of discoloration don’t respond well to teeth whitening agents. Yellow teeth will likely whiten better than brown-colored or grayish teeth. Bonding or tooth-colored fillings in front teeth can be a problem; the whitening agents won’t affect these materials, so if the natural portion of the tooth becomes whiter, the fillings may no longer match in color. If you have a complex case, you may want to consider other options such as veneers or bonding.

If you and your dentist in Ocoee decide that teeth whitening products will improve your smile, you can choose from these treatment options:

  • Whitening toothpastes diminish stains with mild abrasives and chemical or polishing agents. ADA-approved whitening toothpastes can only remove surface stains; they cannot change the color of teeth.
  • At-home teeth whitening products bleach tooth enamel with peroxide-based agents. They are available in brush-on gels, mouth guard trays, and coated strips. Because they contain bleach, these products may cause tooth sensitivity.
  • In-office professional teeth whitening, also called chairside bleaching requires only one visit. Your dentist will first apply a protective device or paste to prevent irritation from the bleaching agent. After the agent is applied, a laser may be used to enhance the results.

Once you’ve completed your teeth whitening treatments, you’ll want to maintain the results for as long as possible. To keep your teeth whiter, practice good oral hygiene, and avoid foods and beverages that stain teeth such as tea, coffee, and wine.
