Tooth whitening has become one of the most popular dental procedures in California. It seems that everyone in Carlsbad is whitening their teeth to help their smiles look younger and brighter. Many residents in the Encinitas area are turning to over-the-counter solutions to whiten their teeth; however, there can be dangers and pitfalls to this approach.
Here is some basic advice on tooth whitening from La Costa Dental Excellence:
First, we encourage you to visit our office in Carlsbad before starting a tooth whitening system. It is a good idea to have your teeth checked and analyzed before starting a tooth whitening program.
Drs. Stephen Dankworth & Kimberly Corrigan-Dankworth at La Costa Dental Excellence can help you determine whether your teeth can be whitened safely and effectively. We can also recommend tooth whitening solutions that will work best for you. There are many pitfalls to be aware of when whitening your teeth. Over-the-counter teeth whitening products available in the Carlsbad area will provide varying degrees of effectiveness on your teeth. If used improperly, tooth whitening solutions can cause problems including tooth sensitivity, over whitening, damage to your tooth enamel, and irregular coloration. Whitening too much can even have a reverse effect, making your teeth look gray.
Most tooth whitening product manufacturers recommend that you visit your local dentist when things go wrong with your over-the-counter tooth whitening solution. We recommend you begin with the committed professionals at La Costa Dental Excellence to get started with a tooth whitening solution that will give you the best tooth whitening results.
