Teeth Whitening: Good Or Bad?

If you’re unsure about whether it’s a good idea to choose teeth whitening (or a not so great idea), it can make it very difficult to make any progress in the direction of a brighter grin. We understand that it’s easy to assume this is some very black-and-white territory but that could not be further from the truth! Whether or not whitening is solid plan for you comes with a lot of particulars. So, let’s discuss them and you’ll know how to proceed.

When It’s Bad

Teeth whitening from our practice is never inherently bad. However, it can be a bad idea for you if your smile is not one that we can effectively treat with this cosmetic treatment. This may turn out to be the case if your stains are internal or very difficult to address. (Not to worry, we offer alternative options). Then, there’s the fact that whitening is “bad” if you’re purchasing it from the drugstore or are using DIY remedies. These approaches will only leave your smile in worse condition and without any remarkable improvement.

When It’s Good

Teeth whitening is exceptional when you make a very good candidate. For instance, if you have mild to moderate discoloration, then you’ll probably do well with whitening. This is also true of patients who are not attempting to whiten artificial tissue like crowns (we can’t use whitening on anything but natural tissue). It’s also a wonderful idea if you’re ready for allover whitening and you’ve decided to receive treatment from our practice. Not sure if it’s whitening you need or something else? No problem.
