Does teeth whitening hurt?
Teeth whitening is an absolutely painless and effective procedure! Before you decide to whiten your teeth, here are some things about teeth whitening you need to know:
What is teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening can be a very effective way of lightening the natural color of your teeth without removing or damaging your tooth surface.
Why would I need my teeth whitened?
There are a number of reasons why you might want to get your teeth whitened. Everyone is different; and just as our hair and skin color vary, so do our teeth. Very few people have perfect white teeth, and our teeth can also become more discolored as we get older.
Your teeth can also be stained on the surface by food and drinks such as tea, coffee, red wine, etc. and smoking/chewing tobacco.
Some people may have intrinsic stains, which can be caused by certain antibiotics or by tiny cracks in the teeth which take up stains.
What does tooth whitening involve?
Professional bleaching is the most common method of tooth whitening. Your dentist will be able to tell you if you are a suitable candidate for the treatment. An FDA approved whitening product is applied onto your teeth, and activated using a special UV light to initiate the whitening process.
The ‘active ingredient’ in the product is usually hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide which releases oxygen that penetrates into the enamel of your teeth bleaching the colored substances while leaving the structure of the teeth intact.
Thus, tooth whitening is a safe & painless procedure provided the product used is branded and approved . Get your teeth whitened from an ISO certified clinic today!
