Tooth Whitening: What The ADA Has To Say

Categories: Cosmetic Dentist

Holly Springs cosmetic smile makeover

When a cosmetic dentistry procedure becomes popular in the Cary and Raleigh areas, it’s natural to want to experience the dramatic results for yourself. However, responsible dental patients should know what the American Dental Association has to say regarding common cosmetic dentistry procedures such as teeth whitening.

The ADA advises patients to speak with with their Cary area dentist before starting any bleaching regimen. An oral examination that is in-depth will help your dentist to know if tooth whitening is for you. This is especially essential when you have dark stains on your teeth or multiple crowns and/or fillings.

Once you have agreed on a tooth whitening technique, your dentist can supervise your use of whichever bleaching agent you have chosen. This will help you to be sure that the frequency of use of your teeth whitener is never too high.

Or, you and your dentist may choose to have your teeth whitened in their Raleigh area office. In-office teeth whitening procedures take much less time than at-home whitening, but it’s important to find out which procedure is right for you.

Also, if you are shopping for whitening tooth products at your favorite Apex, NC, Morrisville, or Holly Springs drugstore, be sure to look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance.

Along with tooth whitening, there are many other cutting-edge cosmetic dentistry procedures your dentist can recommend. Ask us about our other treatments, such as teeth whitening, invisible braces, veneers, or dental implants.
