Teeth Whitening Benefits

Posted 28 November 2013 in News

There are many teeth whitening products available in the market. Many of those products claim to provide a bright-white smile, but very little emphasis is put on their side effects. That is why it is advisable for one to visit the dentist before using any of those products. The dentist is able to give an expert opinion on the dos and don’ts when it comes to using the products for teeth whitening available across the West Midlands and beyond.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Typically, teeth whitening makes a person’s smile brighter. This is a noticeable cosmetic improvement that most people crave. With age and lifestyle choices such as smoking, drinking and taking certain foods, the teeth tend to lose the glow they once had. They stain and become discoloured. Teeth whitening helps remove these stains and discoloration, leaving the teeth brilliant white.

Disadvantages of Teeth Whitening

On the downside, teeth-whitening is not a permanent procedure. It involves temporal brightening of the teeth’s enamel. This brightness is eroded with time as you eat foods and take drinks. Therefore, in order to maintain the teeth’s brightness, you are required to go for repeat treatments.

Effects of Teeth Whitening

Most teeth-whitening products and procedures have some side effects, since most of them involve the use of chemicals and bleaching agents. Most of the side effects are temporary. They include increased tooth sensitivity, over bleaching and chemical burns. All these problems are manageable, although sometimes they can be very irritating.

Teeth Whitening Considerations

In order to find the right teeth-whitening products, you should visit the dentist. The dentist is able to assess the patient’s teeth and know the best teeth-whitening process to use. The dentist also advises the patient on how to handle the side effects of the procedure or product. Therefore, you should not just assume and use any product for teeth whitening that the West Midlands pharmacies sell.

Wisdom tooth removal.

I had my lower wisdom tooth removed. To say that I was a nervous patient was an understatement. The dentist was very understanding and explained the process in stages where I could ask questions. Even though I was really panicking inside the staff had a true sense of calm and the tooth removal was quick and uneventful. I originally wanted sedation but felt confident to go without. The aftercare information was very useful. I experienced a first class service here!
