Teeth Whitening: Pros and Cons
People nowadays want to have a perfect smile like the one we see on television, advertisements and magazines. But how do they maintain their perfect white teeth?
The most common dental cosmetic procedure is teeth whitening. Our mind-set is that if we have a brighter smile, it is more appealing to everyone.
The pros of teeth whitening are: it removes unnecessary stains caused by smoking and some medications, boosts your self-confidence and restores overall health of your teeth and gums. Teeth whitening is also a fast procedure that will only take 45 minutes to an hour to achieve a brighter smile.
However, despite all the advantages of teeth whitening, there are always disadvantages. The cons of teeth whitening are: it is not suitable for everybody.
Some people who have severe gum problem are not advised to have the treatment because of the solution that is used which can cause more irritation to your gums. Teeth whitening don’t work with veneer, crown and implant. It can also cause extreme sensitivity after the treatment.
Aside from in-chair or professional teeth whitening, there are a lot of over the counter teeth whitening products that are out in the market. Before using the over the counter teeth whitening products, you need to be sure that it is TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) approved because there are certain products that can cause damage to your teeth like enamel erosion.
As much as possible we do not want to experience loss of teeth because of the harsh content of the products. It is always better that we consult our dentist to avoid problems like that.
