Why It’s Important To See Your Holistic Dentist For Teeth Whitening

If your teeth become stained or discoloured, there are two main teeth whitening options to consider:

  • over-the-counter teeth whitening products
  • professional teeth whitening

While many patients worry about the higher costs associated with professional teeth whitening, there are many reasons why you should opt for an in-office procedure rather than using over-the-counter teeth whitening products.

1. Your Holistic Dentist Has Access to More Powerful Teeth Whitening Products

As teeth whitening products can damage the tissue they come into contact with, their peroxide content is strictly regulated. That means that OTC teeth whitening kits available to the public will contain a much lower level of peroxide compared to the products available to dentists.

The teeth whitening products provided by your dentist will have the strength to provide dramatic, long-lasting results almost instantly. So while over-the-counter products may come with a lower price, you should consider their potential to achieve good results.

2. If Used Incorrectly, Whitening Products Can Cause Irritation

Most teeth whitening products are based primarily on hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. Although the correct dose can be safely applied to your teeth, these agents can cause discomfort or damage if they come into contact with exposed tissue areas such as your cheeks, lips, or gums. This is especially true if you purchase a whitening kit and haven’t had your gums and teeth checked by a dentist for any signs of gingivitis.

Your holistic dentist will make sure your teeth whitening is administered safely. One of the biggest advantages of having teeth whitening professionally administered is that your dentist knows how to take the necessary precautions to ensure the treatment is not detrimental to your oral health by:

  • custom fitting your tray to make sure that it’s a good fit and the whitening agent doesn’t leak
  • covering your gums and using tools such as cheek retractors, rubber gums, and dams to ensure your cheek doesn’t come into contact with the whitening product

3. One Size Does Not Fit All

While teeth whitening is a viable solution for many patients, it’s not suitable for every individual and it can have an adverse effect on your oral health if you are currently suffering from gum disease, other dental problems, or if you have dental restorations in place.

Among patients who are ideal candidates, there are still many differences in tooth starting shade, tooth sensitivity level, dental arch-shape, and more. Your dental professional can also optimize the bleaching product, delivery system, and treatment duration to your needs.

When you opt for in-clinic whitening, you can be sure you’ll get predictable results that harmonize with your features.

5 Tips For Maintaining Your White Smile
