Is teeth whitening safe?

Teeth discolor for a variety of reasons, including age, smoking, dietary choices, and even certain medications. Fortunately, your cosmetic dentist in Prairieville offers professional teeth whitening to restore the youthful hue of your teeth!

Before you undergo professional teeth whitening, however, your dentist examines your teeth and gums to make sure there are no issues that may prevent the treatment. Considerations may include restorations or underlying dental conditions. However these issues do not always preclude you from whitening.

Because your dentist gives the green light for our professional teeth whitening services, it is generally considered to be a safe treatment for you.

However, we cannot vouch for store-bought gels and kits. Some of the ingredients in these treatments may be harsh or abrasive. Your results may be uneven or not as dramatic as you had hoped for. Additionally, you may be left with ongoing tooth sensitivity.

Professional teeth whitening in Prairieville or Baton Rouge can be a stand-alone treatment or be part of a smile makeover that includes additional cosmetic dentistry options. Ask your dentist for more information.

If you're considering cosmetic dentistry, or if you have any questions or concerns about teeth whitening, contact our dental office today. We look forward to helping you achieve your best smile.
