What’s the Value in Professional Teeth-Whitening?

The good thing about modern dental care is that most common issues, including cavities and gum disease, can be largely prevented. However, there are still some things that will always occur even when you take excellent care of your smile, such as stains appearing on the surfaces of your teeth. Typically, such stains result from the accumulation tartar and exposure to foods and beverages. Over time, such things can affect the appearance of your tooth enamel. Fortunately, you can erase common stains and restore your smile’s brilliance conveniently and effectively with customized professional teeth-whitening.

How do I know it will brighten my smile?

The greatest assurance that teeth-whitening works is the fact that it remains the most frequently performed dental treatment next to routine checkups and cleanings. Still, before recommending it for you, your dentist will carefully examine your teeth to determine the nature and severity of their stains. In some cases, stains may develop underneath tooth enamel, and teeth-whitening might not be the best solution.

Will the results last forever?

While teeth-whitening is extremely effective at erasing even stubborn teeth stains, your teeth may begin to show signs of staining again years after your treatment. You can slow their development by brushing and flossing your teeth at least twice every day. When they do appear, you can once again touchup their appearance with convenient, custom-designed teeth-whitening, or other cosmetic treatment, if necessary.
