Tooth whitening has become one of the most popular dental procedures in Knoxville. It seems that everyone in the Knoxville area is whitening their teeth to help their smiles look younger and brighter. Many consumers 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 professional tooth whitening from Marty W. Lindahl, DDS:
First, we encourage you to visit our general dentistry office in Knoxville before starting a tooth whitening system. It is a good idea to have your teeth checked and analyzed before starting a whitening program. Tooth whitening is not for everyone and depends on your dental history.
Dr. Lindahl at Marty W. Lindahl, DDS 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. Marty W. Lindahl, DDS is a good place to start for this important decision.
There are many pitfalls to be aware of when whitening your teeth. Over-the-counter teeth whitening products available 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 Knoxville cosmetic dentist when things go wrong with your over-the-counter tooth whitening solution. We recommend you begin with the comfortable professionals at Marty W. Lindahl, DDS to get started with a tooth whitening solution that will give you the best results.
