If you have ever thought about getting a brighter and whiter smile through tooth whitening, you might have started to consider your options. Many people have quite a few questions when it comes to this type of treatment, and they may not know if it is right for them. This is natural, and you might find it is the perfect solution for your smile. However, be sure to know the teeth whitening facts before you make a decision on this type of cosmetic dentistry.

Is There Any Pain?

The procedures should not hurt, but you need to keep in mind that the teeth and gums can be sensitive to the hydrogen peroxide that is used. This means that for the first 24 hours after you get the treatment, you might notice that your teeth are more sensitive than normal. However, this feeling should subside. People who have sensitive teeth already may find that the treatments will cause too much sensitivity, though. It is a good idea to get in touch with our cosmetic dentist to see if it is right for you.

Duration of the Treatment

The tooth whitening treatment is not going to last forever. It will eventually go away. However, when you take care of your teeth properly, you will find that you can increase the duration of the treatment’s effects. You will eventually need to have another tooth whitening though, as daily life and age continue to stain your teeth.

The Results

While it is true that you can improve the shade of your teeth, and that the effects tend to be noticeable, it does not mean you will have a pristine white smile after the treatment. The results for patients can vary, but you will find that the results are generally very pleasing.
