One of the easiest ways to brighten your smile is to have your teeth whitened. There are several options when it comes to tooth whitening systems. You can choose from a selection of over-the-counter tooth whitening products at your local Salem drug store, or you can rely on your Salem dentist.
It is a good idea to consult with your dentist before using OTC tooth whitening products. Your dentist knows your teeth and dental history and can recommend a tooth bleaching product best suited for you.
There are many variables when it comes to tooth whitening. The color of your teeth at the beginning of your treatment will influence the end result. Other factors include existing cosmetic dentistry such as crowns and dental bonding, gum health, and tooth sensitivity. Your dentist has experience treating tooth discoloration and understands the benefits and drawbacks of the available methods.
Your dentist may offer a tooth whitening solution that you can take home with you. In some cases, your dentist may recommend a professional treatment that is done at the dentist’s office. Professional tooth whitening can produce dramatic results in a single treatment, but is often done over a few treatments.
Tooth whitening area is less expensive than it was in the earlier days of tooth whitening technology. Today, tooth whitening treatments are very affordable.
