Ensuring the Safety of Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening has a longstanding history, with millions of individuals, including many dentists, using whitening products. According to dental professionals, there hasn't been an increase in issues like increased cavity risk or tooth fractures following teeth whitening procedures. Flossy Smiles Dental Implants & Esthetics is committed to providing safe teeth whitening services for our valued patients.
Potential Side Effects of Teeth Whitening
- Teeth Sensitivity: It's possible for your teeth to become more sensitive after whitening treatments. Sensitivity may occur after the first or second session but tends to diminish over time. Feel free to inquire with one of our doctors if they can recommend products to address sensitivity at your next appointment.
- Irritated Gums: Some individuals may experience gingival irritation, which occurs when the gums become irritated. This irritation can arise if the whitening products come into contact with the gums. Rest assured, at Flossy Smiles Dental Implants & Esthetics, we take precautions to minimize this risk.
Advantages of Teeth Whitening
- Safety: The American Dental Association (ADA) has affirmed the safety and effectiveness of hydrogen peroxide whiteners. At Flossy Smiles Dental Implants & Esthetics, we treat our patients as if they were family. It's important to note that the side effects of teeth whitening, as mentioned above, are typically associated with at-home teeth whitening products. In our office, we take steps to minimize potential side effects.
- Swift Process: Our whitening procedure is fast and efficient. You can leave with whiter teeth after just one session, eliminating the need to wait months for at-home products to yield results.
- Avoid Recurring Appointments: Frequent teeth whitening sessions can potentially harm your teeth. With just a few professional whitening sessions, you can achieve the bright, white smile you desire without the need for ongoing appointments.
If you have concerns about your upcoming teeth whitening procedure or the safety of an at-home product you're using, don't hesitate to seek guidance from one of our doctors.
