We all want a bright smile. Smiling is welcoming to those around us and it is a sign of happiness for each of us as individuals. Hopefully, we all smile a lot, regardless of what our teeth look like. With that being said, there is nothing wrong with wanting to improve your smile. One way to improve a smile is through teeth whitening. This process is exactly what it seems—making your teeth whiter.
Unfortunately, some people have sensitive teeth, thus, they shy away from teeth whitening because they are concerned about how it will affect their teeth. The good news is teeth whitening specialists are very much aware of this concern and have taken action. Various processes and procedures have surfaced to ensure teeth whitening can be executed for those who have sensitive teeth. Please let the following enlighten you on how your sensitive teeth can become pearly white.
You might want to visit a dentist prior to committing to teeth whitening. It is a good idea to get approval from your dentist, as teeth whitening treatment can backfire if the patient has cavities or unhealthy gums. The last thing you want is to go for a teeth whitening appointment expecting whiter teeth, and then come out with teeth that are worse off because you got the treatment without your dentist’s approval. This will only set you back.
Always trust the professionals. While there are in-home teeth whitening options, you’re better off having the treatment done by an expert. The results will show quicker and better, and you will be in better care with a professional’s help.
The treatment process is specific to teeth, meaning a patient’s gums will be covered and unexposed to the applied bleaching gel. It’s a basic process for the patient: bleaching gel will be applied to your teeth and will remain for 15 to 30 minutes before it can be washed off. Just like that, you have whiter teeth! Most professionals use specific gels or desensitizers during the treatment to allow comfort for the patient. You can also purchase desensitizers to use after the treatment.
Of course, once you have whiter teeth, you’ll want to keep them white. A few helpful tips to carry out post-treatment include:
- Using a straw when drinking acidic beverages, such as soda, pineapple juice, or wine.
- Refraining from tobacco products.
- Brushing your teeth or using mouth wash after each meal.
- Using specific whitening toothpaste.
These tips will help prevent teeth sensitivity, as well as maintain the teeth whitening results. We’re not suggesting you abide by the above habitually; however, a good consistency will go a long way in keeping your smile bright.
