When choosing Fort Worth teeth whitening, be sure to discuss your specific needs and concerns with Dr. Parham first. Not everyone’s teeth respond to bleaching products the same way. For instance, if you have bonding or tooth-colored fillings added, those won’t respond to bleaching at all. Here are some basic tooth-whitening procedures to consider:
Teeth Whitening Fort Worth in the Office
This route usually requires only one office visit. Dr. Parham will apply a protective gel to your gums or a rubber shield to protect the oral soft tissues. He then applies a bleaching agent to your teeth and may use a special light. Lasers can be used during tooth-whitening procedures to boost the whitening agent.
Doing it yourself at home.
Be sure to discuss this option with Dr. Parham before you do it. This is because there can be side effects, such as increased sensitivity or gum irritation. The products you can purchase to whiten your own teeth have whiteners with peroxide that actually bleach your tooth’s enamel. They usually are a gel that is placed in a mouth guard and applied to your teeth. All of them are different, so after Dr. Parham and you choose one, be sure to read the instructions and follow them.
Using whitening toothpastes.
Just about all toothpastes work to remove surface stains using mild abrasives. The toothpastes you see that are labeled as “whitening” toothpastes have chemicals or polishing agents that provide additional stain removal. Unlike bleaches, whitening toothpastes won’t change the color of your teeth; they can remove stains on the surface only. Teeth whitening Fort Worth can actually lift the stains that lie beneath the surface.
One last tip, when choosing a tooth-whitening product, be sure to look for the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance. That way you know the product has met ADA’s standards of safety and effectiveness.
