What exactly is teeth whitening, and how does it work?

Teeth whitening is one of the many popular cosmetic dental procedures today. It involves using high-quality bleaching agents to remove unwanted stains and discoloration from the natural teeth, resulting in a much brighter and whiter smile. The process works by breaking down the molecular bonds that cause staining, allowing oxygen to enter the enamel and bleach out any discoloration.

What are “the good and bad” about teeth whitening services?

There are pros and cons of whitening the smile that must be considered when choosing a cosmetic treatment for a patient. Some of the “good and bad” include:

  • The good: Teeth whitening can effectively remove stains and discoloration from the teeth, improving the smile’s overall appearance. It is a relatively fast and non-invasive procedure that can produce immediate results
  • The bad: Overuse of bleaching agents or using them without professional supervision can lead to tooth sensitivity and gum irritation. Additionally, some stains may not respond well to teeth whitening treatments, requiring alternative cosmetic procedures
