Are Teeth Bleaching Whitening Treatments Right for You?

dca-blog_teeth-whitening-tooth-comparison

At some point in your life, you’ll probably have to face the embarrassment of tooth stains. Because enamel becomes thinner as you age, discoloration occurs naturally as you get older. Stains can also be caused by your consumption of tea, coffee, cola drinks, red wine, and even healthy foods like brightly colored berries. If you smoke or chew tobacco regularly, take tetracycline, or suffer dental injuries, you may find yourself with unsightly, discolored teeth at a younger age. Fortunately, seeing your dentist in Virginia for professional teeth whitening can usually solve the problem and restore your gorgeous smile.

The Ideal Candidates for Teeth Whitening
– The best candidates for professional teeth whitening have healthy teeth without fillings or restorations and healthy gum tissues. Patients whose teeth have yellow tones are more likely to respond to treatment.

Teeth Whitening Treatments Aren’t Right for Everyone
– Not everyone can have a tooth bleaching whitening treatment safely or effectively. Patients with the following conditions or circumstances may not be the best candidates:

  • Patients with periodontal disease, tooth decay, cavities, and exposed roots
  • People who have restorations such as fillings, implants, crowns, and dental bridges
  • People who are allergic to teeth bleaching whitening agents such as peroxide
  • Pregnant and lactating women
  • Children under 16 years of age
  • Individuals with sensitive teeth
  • Those who seek unrealistic or blinding-white results

Special Considerations – If you have fillings or other materials in your mouth, special considerations are necessary. Because crowns, bridges and other inorganic restorations are immune to the effects of tooth whitening, your natural teeth and restored teeth may not match after the procedure. If uneven color is likely to be a problem, your dentist may be able to develop a strategy to get more consistent results. In some cases, new fillings or other restorations may be required. Even if whitening is not a viable option, your dentist offers many other ways to perfect your smile such as veneers or bonding.
