Having a beautiful white smile is something that everyone wants. A clean, white smile helps enhance self-confidence and is something in which to be proud. No matter how hard you try to maintain good oral hygiene or no matter what toothpaste you invest in, you simply will not see the brightest smile possible. If you want those pristine white teeth, then scheduling a tooth whitening session with Oak Dental Care. You can visit our office and meet our doctor. We’ll explain how tooth whitening isn't just about appearance but is also about how beneficial it is for your overall oral health.
A tooth whitening session begins with teeth cleaning session. This means your teeth and gums are checked for any cracks, chips, cavities, and signs of gingivitis. The cleaning process also helps to remove tartar and plaque buildup around your teeth, thereby preventing any tooth decay and killing bacteria along the way.
Getting rid of bacteria from your mouth is quite difficult and it doesn’t take much to cause a major dental issue down. When you get your teeth whitened, all the bacteria present in your mouth are killed in the process, helping to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
The tooth whitening follows general cleaning. Tooth-whitening works best on yellowed teeth and is less effective on brown teeth. Dental professionals have several different methods for whitening teeth. In general, all treatments work quickly, and the whitening effect might last longer. Sometimes, light is used during the whitening session to hasten the process.
Teeth whitening is safe, but some people experience minor side effects, like gum irritation or teeth sensitivity. Both should lessen in a short period of time. If not, the dental professional can recommend an effective treatment for both.
Remember, too, that teeth whitening is not permanent. You will need to return from time to time to have the process repeated. You can, however, help the effects last longer by avoiding coffee, tea, red wine, curry and other spices with strong coloring, and dark-colored foods. Rinsing or brushing soon after meals can keep discoloration from affecting the tooth surface.
Most people avoid in-office teeth whitening procedures because they believe it is expensive. The truth is, maintaining a beautiful smile is not only about the money. While you do have to pay for the dental whitening session, it is something that will save you a lot of money by catching problems early, preventing invasive dental procedures that would cost considerably more. This is because your teeth are examined and cleaned prior to the whitening. Any dental issues discovered during the exam are treated prior to whitening. Our priority is keeping your teeth and gums healthy.
There is no reason why you should not have a perfectly brilliant smile. Tooth whitening is safe and effective if you follow the instructions given by the dental professional after the process is complete. So, what are you waiting for?
