Who Can Benefit From Teeth Whitening?

Virtually everyone can benefit from teeth whitening, as teeth naturally change color over time due to eating, drinking, and age. Some substances—like coffee, wine, cigarette smoke, and tea—are more likely to affect the color of your teeth than others, but it’s normal to experience some changes even if you avoid these items. In fact, your enamel will get thinner as you age and continue to brush your teeth, which means that more yellowish dentin will show through. A similar effect happens with trauma to the mouth area, as your teeth react to the injury by producing more dentin. Some medications, such as antihistamines and high blood pressure medications, can also darken your teeth.

Only your dentist can tell for certain if teeth whitening is for you. For example, if you’ve had a lot of dental work completed involving implants, veneers, caps, crowns, or fillings, your teeth may not be affected by the bleaching process. If you plan on having more dental work done beyond teeth whitening, it’s best to set up a timeline with your dentist as you’ll want to ensure any permanent dental work you’ll be getting matches the whiteness of your teeth. Lastly, teeth whitening does not affect tooth discoloration caused by medications or tooth injury.

What You Need to Know About Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental service that is safe and easy when done right, which is why it’s recommended to complete either at the dentist’s office or at home with a little guidance. Specific bleaches contained in professional teeth whitening products break stains into smaller pieces. In turn, this actually removes stains rather than simply changing their color. Your dentist will work with you to determine which teeth whitening solution is best for you depending on your lifestyle, schedule, medical issues, and the status of your teeth. They may suggest one or more of the following whitening options:

• Stain-removing toothpaste

• In-office bleaching

• At-home bleaching

• Over-the-counter bleaching

You may experience some sensitivity right after you get your teeth whitened, but this will subside over the next few days. Be sure not to overuse teeth whitening products, as this can damage the tooth enamel and gums, leading to inflammation and possible other problems.

When you turn to Brickyard Dental Group for your teeth whitening, you can expect your treatment to be customized to suit your unique wants and needs. Make sure you follow all directions provided by your dentist for the best results, as they may recommend that you avoid certain foods, drinks, or activities for a few days after whitening to prevent more staining.
