Teeth whitening is becoming increasingly popular these days as a way to make your teeth sparkling white,and can make your teeth literally shades whiter than they were before.
It is important to remember that teeth whitening should always be performed by a dental professional, you wouldn’t risk any other area of your health by using unregulated products or services and your oral health should be the same.
A lot of salons that offer teeth whitening can have competitive pricing and make bold claims about how they can improve your smile, but if the procedure is carried out by a member of the salon staff rather than a qualified dentist it is not only dangerous but also illegal. For example, the mould that you put on which contains the bleach may not fit your teeth properly, in this case your gums could also get bleached and become painful and potentially blistered. With Home Kits purchased online or elsewhere, they may not have enough teeth whitening agent in them to really make any effective impact on your teeth, so it is always best to go to a professional where you can have peace of mind knowing that you are in safe hands.
In most cases the dentist will make a mould of your teeth to create a mouthguard. Within this mouthguard will be placed the bleaching agent. Then you will apply the bleaching gel and mouthguard at home often for a period of around 2 weeks and then come in for a final session with the dentist to debrief and make sure the treatment has been a success & you have brighter, shinier teeth.
