Whitening your smile is an easy, surefire way to improve the appearance of your teeth and boost your confidence in one fell swoop. With technology getting better and better every day, teeth whitening procedures have been around for years, but have never been so effective as they are today. Find out more about teeth whitening and how it can benefit your smile with Dr. Kristie Reine and Dr. Edmund Ring at Lakeshore Family Dentistry in Slidell, LA.
How does teeth whitening work?
Teeth whitening takes advantage of the chemical reactions between your teeth’s stains and the substances which make up the whitening gel your dentist places onto your teeth. The gel’s chemicals break the bonds which hold the stain’s molecules together, allowing them to move farther apart. This provides your tooth with a whiter appearance and gives your smile an overall renewal.
Am I a good candidate for teeth whitening procedures?
A good candidate for teeth whitening is in good dental and general health. They should also have an exceptional at-home oral care routine and a strong commitment to seeing their dentist for routine dental examinations and cleanings at least twice a year. Those patients considering teeth whitening who have teeth sensitivity should consult with their dentist to ensure that teeth whitening is right for them and their smile.
