The naturally splendorous white teeth are extremely desirable but unfortunately a plethora of factors cause discoloration. A majority of adults as well as kids suffer from teeth discoloration. Teeth whitening happen to be the only known solution to such problems.
While opting for teeth whitening, everyone should bear in mind the following facts.
It can only be performed by a professional dentist. Normal doctors or practitioners do not have the adequate knowledge to cater such treatment. While whitening the teeth is not a surgery or an invasive procedure, there is a need to thoroughly diagnose your dental health to ascertain the exact causes of teeth discoloration. Furthermore, there is a need to carry out the procedure with utmost cautiousness as to not overdo it, consequentially causing harm to the natural enamel of the teeth.
The procedures of whitening the teeth have evolved with time. Today, several state of the art facilities and methods are used to carry out such treatments. Tooth sensitivity and similar side effects have been common after teeth whitening but latest methods and solutions used minimize any after effect of the procedure. While choosing a dentist, one must enquire about these aspects and also see if the facility is state of the art.
The laser option will take less time but will cost you more money and the home kit option is a bit of a diy system taking longer but only costing a few pounds.
Many times if the staining is more towards the surface of the tooth then a home kit will work quite well but the trouble is you do not know how deep the staining is until you try whitening. Many of the home kits will lift the staining but if you are having trouble then it would be worth trying the laser option.
Home kits work but need to be used regularly as they only take a small fraction of the staining out of the teeth every time they are used and for this reason they need to looked at as an ongoing activity.
The laser option being more powerful needs only periodic boosting treatments maybe every 12 or 18 months to really stay on top of the teeth and keep them white. Once the laser system treatment has been completed a good hybrid model is to use a home kit to keep the teeth white throughout the year.
To conclude I hope this has helped you recognise the benefits of teeth whitening and also about maybe about trying a home kit and see if it works if not at least the laser system is there for you!
