When you are looking to get a brighter, whiter smile, you will find a lot of options for teeth-whitening products at your local grocery store or pharmacy. When you have access to so many whitening products, you may wonder if you should even ask your dentist about whitening your teeth. First, it is important to know that your dentist is your best source for getting answers to any of your smile questions. Your dentist is trained with education and experience to help you keep your smile healthy and beautiful. Your dentist can help you determine the best whitening treatment for your smile, can provide professional-grade whitening treatments, help pinpoint any potential issues, and help you if your smile’s appearance is beyond the reach of teeth-whitening treatments.
Your Dentist Can Help You Find More Options
If you decide that you want to go the over-the-counter route with your teeth-whitening, you can talk to your dentist about what exactly your smile needs. If you want to go straight to your dentist for your path of whitening, your dentist can offer a couple of different professional-grade options. A customized kit can be provided for you to whiten your teeth in your home with a mouth-tray molded from your smile along with professional grade whitening gel. Your dentist can also offer an in-office treatment to help you get amazing results in a much shorter amount of time.
Your Dentist Can Identify Any Potential Issues
Maybe you read about a do-it-yourself organic option using backing soda and decided to do that instead of buying a whitening kit at the grocery store. No matter your method, talking to your dentist about your whitening treatment helps make sure that any issues, such as tooth sensitivity, do not become bigger problems.
Your Dentist Can Address Deeper Stains
Any whitening treatment, even the professional grade stuff, will only be able to remove stains and discoloration that effect the outside of the teeth. When discoloration comes from the tooth’s tissue beneath the enamel, whitening will not make a difference for the stains. Your dentist can identify these types of discoloration and provide other cosmetic treatments as options.
