A smile makes you feel self assured and confident. However, tooth whitening isn’t for everyone. If you have porcelain veneers, dental crowns, dental implants, or other dental restorations, teeth whitening isn’t an option. Because your restorations are old and stained, you will need to contact Dr. Julie Storm who can recommend an alternative.
Tooth whitening polishes, strips, gels, pastes, one-size fits not all trays and tooth whitening rinses will not work as well as professional teeth whitening products. As a result, some people will use more product if the desired results aren’t achieved. Unfortunately, using any type of teeth whitening product too much or too long could permanently damage the enamel on your teeth.
The active ingredient in products used to whiten teeth is usually hydrogen peroxide. Over the counter products will not contain as much active ingredient as a prescription product will. You will have better results with professional tooth whitening. Talk to your Midwest City Cosmetic Dentist for professional results with the Kor Teeth Whitening System.
There are two types of professional tooth whitening treatments available. Custom made take home trays that you use with a prescription whitening gel and in-office whitening that takes place chairside in a single dental appointment. Depending on the severity of your stains, your dentist in Midwest City may recommend both treatments for optimum results. Whatever product you choose it is important to follow instructions.
Be aware that teeth whitening will not last forever. If you love red wine, tea or coffee, or can’t live without your red sauces and curry’s, you may need professional touch ups every six month to 10 months.
