Tooth whitening has become one of the most popular dental procedures in Texas. It seems that everyone in Plano is whitening their teeth to help their smiles look younger and brighter. Many residents in the Dallas area are turning to over-the-counter solutions to whiten their teeth; however there can be dangers and pitfalls to this approach.
Here is some basic advice on tooth whitening from The Plano Dentist:
First, we encourage you to visit our office in Plano before starting a tooth whitening system. It is a good idea to have your teeth checked and analyzed before starting a tooth whitening program.
Dr. Kelly Kim at The Plano Dentist can help you determine whether your teeth can be whitened safely and effectively. We can also recommend tooth whitening solutions that will work best for you. There are many pitfalls to be aware of when whitening your teeth. Over-the-counter teeth whitening products available in the Plano area will provide varying degrees of effectiveness on your teeth. If used improperly, tooth whitening solutions can cause problems including tooth sensitivity, over whitening, damage to your tooth enamel, and irregular coloration. Whitening too much can even have a reverse effect, making your teeth look gray.
Most tooth whitening product manufacturers recommend that you visit your local dentist when things go wrong with your over-the-counter tooth whitening solution. We recommend you begin with the professionals at our comfortable and comprehensive dental clinic, The Plano Dentist, to get started with a tooth whitening solution that will give you the best tooth whitening results.
Our office is located at 3115 W Parker Rd, Ste C538, Plano, Texas 75023. Please give us a call or stop by to make an appointment to discuss your tooth whitening plans. We are eager to help you make the best decision about your tooth whitening.
