Who Is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Before you proceed with any cosmetic procedure, you’ll have a consultation to determine whether you’re a good candidate. Although many people want lighter grins, teeth whitening isn’t always an appropriate solution. For example, if you have cavities or gum disease those will need to be cleared up, first. Applying whitening agents over tooth decay can cause a great deal of discomfort so this is an important step.

Also, certain types of discoloration originate inside your tooth and cannot be bleached away. Intrinsic blemishes can be caused by genetics, prescription medications, or other factors, and applying a surface treatment won’t affect them. However, if you have extrinsic stains from eating and drinking dark foods and beverages then you could likely benefit from teeth whitening.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Although there are plenty of over-the-counter toothpastes and kits that claim they can brighten your grin, these tend to have abrasive ingredients that can wear down your enamel and cause tooth sensitivity. Dr. Ali, meanwhile, has access to professional-grade ingredients to safely lighten your teeth without causing the same discomfort. With both in-office and take-home treatments available, you can choose how to get your ideal results. Continue reading below to learn more about each option.

If you’re investing in teeth whitening, you’ll want to do everything you can to keep your brighter smile. Although results typically last anywhere from 6 months to 3 years, you can maintain them by caring for your teeth properly. Some helpful tips are:

  • Brush and floss twice daily.
  • Avoid overly sugary foods that attract cavity-inducing bacteria.
  • Choose water over dark beverages that stain like soda, coffee, tea, or wine.
  • Schedule touch-up services as needed.
  • Keep up with routine dental checkups and cleanings every 6 months.
