While some of the over-the-counter products may provide satisfactory results for certain individuals, professional-grade teeth whitening generally creates far superior results for the vast majority of people. There are many reasons behind this, with the primary reason being the fact that Greenwood MS the professional teeth whitening solutions include whitening products that are more powerful than those that are found in many commercial teeth whitening kits available at the local drugstore. Professionally-made whitening ingredients are able to penetrate more deeply into the enamel to address discoloration and stains that have been appearing for a long time.
A significant difference between one of the main differences between professional teeth whitening and over-the-counter options is the length of time it takes to see visible results. One treatment in the office generally results in immediate visible effects however, over-the-counter products typically require many weeks of patient, consistent use before producing even a slight amount of whitening.
With this in mind, one of the most important distinctions between these two options is the fact that professional teeth whitening treatments are developed and monitored by an individual among our cosmetic dentists. This provides patients with management of the treatment provided by an experienced expert, which will dramatically improve the chances that results will be successful and that the process is done safely.
In addition to over-the-counter options, we live in a time when there are claims that claim to be “natural” solutions such as charcoal teeth whitening and coconut oil teeth whitening are prevalent–regimens that, according to the American Dental Association, have no proof to show they are efficient or safe. In fact the majority of these gimmicky whitening options are quite abrasive to the tooth structure. They function more so in that they remove a layer of enamel and exposing the whiter layer beneath. Eventually, you run out of enamel, and this can spell big troubles later. The teeth whitening treatments, supervised by our experienced dental professionals is the most effective method of ensuring optimal results and a brighter and whiter smile.
The sensation of tooth sensitivity that occurs during and after the teeth whitening treatment in Greenwood MS is not unusual. Although this issue should go away fairly quickly, we would like to ensure that patients are as comfortable as possible during the procedure and the hours that follow. Through a couple of simple procedures, tooth sensitiveness and any potential discomfort associated with it can be reduced.
If you have teeth that are already sensitive, you should let our dentists know before your treatment begins. In these cases we might be able to adjust the dosage of whitening solutions to minimize any discomfort. It is also recommended that you utilize a soft-bristled tooth brush and a toothpaste like Sensodyne(r) or another products designed specifically for those who suffer from sensitive teeth. Regular rinses using the fluoride-based mouthwash can be helpful, and the temporary avoidance of consuming foods that are too hot or cold or with high levels of acidity is an excellent idea.
Additionally, it is important to note that the teeth can become more sensitive when they are whitened too frequently, whether that is achieved through in-office or home treatments. In this regard those who frequently undergo whitening treatments and experience extreme level of tooth sensitiveness may be advised to cut back on the frequency of treatments.
The durability of teeth whitening Greenwood MS results is dependent on a myriad of aspects, such as lifestyle habits, genetics, diet, as well as the use of certain medications. In many cases they experience results that last for long time. If you see that the results of the whitening process are beginning to diminish then you can perform a “touch-up” treatment can be done to keep the result for longer. We recommend the use of straws when drinking certain drinks to minimize staining, as well as regular visits to your dentist to reduce the risk of plaque that can contribute to staining.
