Is Teeth Whitening Harmful To Your Teeth?
Besides someone’s eyes and hair, white teeth are the first thing we notice when we look at a person. A white smile makes a person comfortable and boosts self-esteem. When you get white teeth, you have the drive to smile more often. Luckily, you can whiten your teeth today, near you. In our clinic at Herzliya Dental Clinic, we can make your wishes come true. Whether you want to do home whitening or in-office whitening, we are here to help you.
How does the teeth whitening treatment look like?
There are two ways to do the tooth bleaching:
- In-office teeth whitening: this is the most common teeth whitening treatment. It is done in one or two visits at Herzliya Dental Clinic, and after that, you will go home with your new smile.
- Home whitening: this is the procedure where you will get trays made just for your teeth. For one week you will sleep with those trays on your teeth and the teeth will become whiter gradually
What you need to know about tooth whitening?
When you decide to do teeth whitening treatment, you will first need to have a teeth examination and cleaning. It is important that all your teeth and gums are healthy before you proceed with the whitening process. This is why we do not recommend for you to do over the counter teeth whitening systems. Teeth cleaning will also provide a clean surface so that teeth whitening gel can be evenly distributed on your teeth.
While this process is done, as well as a few days after, we recommend that you do not take any dark beverages, such as black coffee, red wine, etc. These types of liquids will make stains on your teeth while you are still in the process of whitening them.
Who can whiten their teeth?
Everyone that has their natural teeth can whiten them. The only rule is that teeth and gums need to be healthy. Also, all the cracked filling in your mouth have to be changed.
Regarding the old filling, if you have some of them on the visible surface of the teeth, you will have to change them after the teeth whitening process is done. Materials such as composite and ceramics don’t change the color after tooth whitening is done. This is why you will need to match them afterward (if they are visible when you smile). Also, if you are a heavy smoker, your teeth whitening results will last you a shorter period of time.
