4 Questions to Ask Your Dentist About Teeth Whitening, Manhattan, New York

If you’ve always wanted a whiter smile, your dentist can help you with professional teeth whitening right in their office. With professional whitening, you’ll feel more confident with a smile that lights up a room. And you can relax knowing your dentist will help you get the results you want. 

What to Ask Your Dentist About Teeth Whitening

1. Will It Work for Me?

Teeth whitening removes stains and bleaches your teeth to create that bright white smile. Different people can get different results with whitening because not all discoloration can be removed. When you choose professional whitening at the dentist’s office, your dentist will help you determine if you can get the results you’re looking for before you make the decision.  

2. How Long Will It Last?

Coffee and red wine can also dim your bright white smile. Use a whitening toothpaste your dentist recommends and maintain good oral health to maximize your results.

3. Is Teeth Whitening Safe?

Over-the-counter whitening kits use weak ingredients to keep you safe at home. Your dentist uses a stronger solution for the best results, and they have the training and equipment to apply the solution safely and protect your gums throughout the process. If you’re concerned about the safety of professional teeth whitening, ask your dentist to explain the procedure and the ingredients used.

4. What Are the Side Effects?

Teeth are whitened using a peroxide solution, which can cause some sensitivity for a few days after the whitening process. There may also be some soft tissue irritation if the gums come into contact with the whitening solution. Fortunately, this issue is mitigated with a professional application.
