Teeth Whitening: Is it Safe?

Teeth Whitening - Is it Safe

Many people dream of a glamorous “movie star” white smile, but shy away from teeth whitening treatments due to the common misconception that teeth whitening is damaging or dangerous. Here at Robstown Smiles, we want to help you achieve and enjoy your most beautiful and healthy smile possible. Continue reading for more information about teeth whitening.

Consult Your Dentist

When not properly administered or when using whitening products with questionable ingredients that may pose a risk to your health, whitening may become harmful to your health, but when properly administered by a dental professional, teeth whitening is completely safe. Always consult your trusted dental professional if you are considering whitening your teeth, and if possible, avoid the over-the-counter at-home whitening systems.

Your dentist will be able to create whitening trays that will perfectly fit your teeth in order to provide the best results. They will also be able to ensure that the teeth are not subject to a longer processing time than necessary; this puts the teeth at risk of becoming overly sensitive to hot and cold.

Your dentist will also be able to determine if you are a good candidate for teeth whitening; those who have dental prosthetic’s or restorations such as a crown or bridge may not want to consider teeth whitening, as only natural teeth can be whitened successfully.
