How professional teeth whitening with a dentist can help address staining of the teeth
- Posted on: Oct 15 2019
The color of your smile can greatly impact its overall appearance. Dr. James A. Oshetski of Brunswick, ME is committed to providing patients with solutions that improve the aesthetics of the smile, including professional teeth whitening that lifts and cleans deep stains and surface stains.
Is teeth whitening safe?
Teeth whitening, when performed by a professional or administered by the patient per the instructions, is completely safe. It is a great way to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted, free from staining and discoloration. Using the products available at Implant and Restorative Dentistry, patients can brighten their smile up to eight shades whiter without any side effects.
What types of teeth whitening are available?
While there are a wide variety of whitening products available on the market today, patients often find that professional-grade products are more effective and a smarter investment than those available over-the-counter. Many of these over-the-counter products are made to be far less concentrated and strong, as they are being used without the monitoring of a dental professional. These drugstore alternatives are far less effective at improving the smile’s appearance. Instead, our team offers both in-office power bleaching and take-home whitening kits to maximize the appearance of the natural dental enamel.
Who is a candidate for professional teeth whitening?
Dr. James A. Oshetski evaluates each patient to determine if they are appropriate candidates for brightening the smile with professional-grade products. The best candidates are those with surface stains, a healthy smile, and a smile free from restorations. Restorations including dental bridges, dental crowns, and porcelain veneers will not be impacted by the whitening products, so it is best for patients with restorations to consider having them replaced completely if they are serious about brightening their smile for the long haul! A simple evaluation with our team helps patients decide if they are a good fit for one of our two whitening methods available.
