Why You Should Whiten Your Teeth With A Cosmetic Dentist

Teeth_Whitening When it comes to teeth whitening, patients have a huge array of choices. There are dozens of over-the-counter whitening gels, toothpastes, strips, trays and other methods. However, if a patient truly wants the teeth whitening process to enhance his or her health as well as appearance, it makes sense to have a cosmetic dentist supervise the process. Here are a few reasons why.

Advantages of Dentist Supervised, In-Office Teeth Whitening

  1. When you visit a cosmetic dentist for your teeth whitening, you will receive a comprehensive examination first, to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. This can help identify conditions responsible for a darkened tooth that need treatment in addition to, or instead of, teeth whitening.
  2. Teeth sensitivity can be one of the biggest challenges when whitening one’s teeth using over-the-counter products. In-office whitening provides access to professional advice on the best ways to address your unique sensitivity needs, and the whitening process itself is delivered with the utmost consideration of the safety and comfort of your mouth.
  3. In-office whitening provides a more powerful bleaching agent, delivered in fewer applications, so you do not have to wait weeks to see significant results!
  4. Trying to find just the right “level of brightness” when doing teeth whitening on your own can be tricky. Experienced cosmetic dentists can help you achieve just the right shade of brightness – one that will dazzle, yet look completely natural.
  5. Because in-office whitening applications do not last forever, it is likely you’ll need an at-home regimen to maintain your results. A cosmetic dentist can provide quality at-home whitening products for you to purchase, and consult closely with you on their proper use.

“Like all procedures that impact your mouth, patients should ask to have their teeth whitening overseen by an experienced dental professional,” says Dr. Carol Ford, a cosmetic dentist with a practice in central Phoenix. “They can ensure the end result is beautiful, natural-looking and beneficial to your teeth and gums.”
