Tooth whitening: talk to your dental care professional now for your options.
You have more than one option for tooth whitening at DentalWorks. No matter which you choose, here are the benefits of having a dental care professional whiten your teeth.
We blogged about Zoom teeth whitening and how this process can significantly whiten your teeth . As a follow up to that post, here is more info on the importance of partnering with a dental health care professional when whitening your teeth, whether you choose Zoom teeth whitening or another whitening process.
The American Dental Association ( ADA) recommends that patients consult with their dentist when choosing a tooth whitening treatment – and then throughout any professional whitening process.
More specifically, the ADA recommends that your dentist “supervises the use of bleaching agents within the context of a comprehensive, appropriately sequenced treatment plan ” This is especially important, according to the ADA, if you have “many fillings, crowns, and extremely dark stains.”
Benefits of having teeth whitened by a dental care professional include:
- you will receive a thorough cleaning before having your teeth whitened
- your dentist will check to see if there are any potential problems, such as open cavities, or issues with gum tissue, before proceeding
- you will have your teeth whitened with professional strength products
