Choosing Professional Teeth Whitening
When you go to the drugstore, you’re overwhelmed by the number of whitening products they offer on their shelves. But over the counter tooth whitening solutions aren’t the same quality as getting your teeth professionally whitened.
First, many kits are considered one size fits all. Ill-fitting whitening products can cause pain and sensitivity if the bleaching agent comes into contact with your gums or other soft tissue. If they don’t fit properly, you’re also more likely to get spotty results. Some areas may have better contact on your teeth than others.
Over-the-counter whitening solutions can also cause overall sensitivity to your teeth. This is one of the main concerns that patients have. Tooth whitening is commonly known to cause sensitivity. But when you get professional whitening services, this can be avoided. The whitening product we use contains an ingredient that’s used in sensitivity toothpaste to ensure no problems with increased sensitivity occur.
What Causes Tooth Stains
In addition to what you eat and drink, there are some other major sources of tooth stains:
- Chewing tobacco
- Certain medications
- Excessive fluoride in water (fluorosis)
Many of these stains are topical and can be removed through teeth whitening at our Ottawa area office or with one of our professional-strength tooth whitening kits.
However, deeper stains – such as those caused by tetracycline or fluorosis – may require an advanced cosmetic dentistry solution. If your stains are intrinsic (underneath the enamel), our cosmetic dentists will evaluate the extent of discolouration and recommend the best treatment for your specific needs.
