Three Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Dental Treatments
Does whitening damage the teeth?
Not when the directions are followed. The active whitening agent in bleaching kits, carbamide peroxide, when combined with water, creates hydrogen peroxide and whitens teeth. Bleaching does not weaken teeth when used for only a short time. In-office whitening is always followed by an additional treatment that protects the surface of the enamel.
Do over-the-counter whitening kits really work?
TV commercials may promise that drugstore whitening treatments work in just a few days. While this can be true to some extent, the results obtained with non-prescription tooth whitening kits are minimal and varied at best. These kits can also be expensive and, to get the results you seek, you may end up buying two or three treatments for only limited results.
If I want whiter teeth, what should I do?
Professional teeth whitening, supervised by our Placerville dentists, is the safest and most economical way to get the brighter smile you want.
