Is Teeth Bleaching Safe and Effective? 

In-office teeth whitening procedures remove tooth stains and restore bright smiles. If you’re ready to say goodbye to yellow teeth, it’s time to make an appointment with your dentist in Englewood so you can learn more about the best teeth whitening procedures available. The following questions and answers can give you an idea what to expect.

Are Teeth Whitening Products Safe? 

Bleaching products sold through dentists’ offices and professional in-office systems have received the ADA Seal of Acceptance, which designates them as both safe and effective. With the exception of several whitening toothpastes, over-the-counter whitening treatments have not received the Seal of Acceptance.

Does Stain Color Affect Whitening Results? 

The color of tooth stains can impact your potential whitening results. If you have yellow stains, bleaching is likely to be very effective. Brown stains are more resistant, and gray or purple stains may not respond. Other factors that affect your results include the type and concentration of bleach used, the duration of your treatment and your dental health.

Are Touch-Ups Required Often? 

Your results may fade quickly if you consume stain-causing foods and beverages. If you avoid them, or maintain your results with at-home products, your results may last up to a year before you need a touch-up.

Do Teeth Bleaching Procedures Damage Existing Restorations? 

Teeth bleaching products have not produced any damage to fillings or other restorations. However, tooth-colored crowns, veneers, and bridges cannot be lightened during a tooth whitening procedure, so they may no longer match natural teeth that have been lightened.

Do Teeth Whitening Products Harm Tooth Enamel? 

According to studies, a 10-percent concentration of peroxide has little or no effect on the mineral content or hardness of tooth enamel.

Can Teeth Bleaching Damage a Tooth’s Nerve? 

Bleaching agents do not have any negative effects on a tooth’s nerve tissues.

Does Teeth Whitening Carry Risks? 

Even the best teeth whitening procedures may cause minor side effects. The most common are tooth sensitivity and irritation of the soft tissues inside your mouth. While they can be annoying, these symptoms are only temporary. If they are severe, your dentist may be able to help relieve your discomfort.
