Whitening Treatments: The Things to Consider Before Brightening Your Teeth - Ballwin Dental Care

As you may already know, teeth whitening is a beneficial and successful cosmetic dental treatment that can give you the white and brilliant smile you’ve always wanted. However, it’s not for everyone. So, before you take the first step in brightening your chompers, our [practice_name] team encourages you to think about the following things:

What does your dentist say?
Not all tooth stains can be corrected with teeth-whitening treatments, even professional treatments. So, it’s best to get advice from your dentist before you take the first step of treatment. Teeth whitening is also discouraged if you have sensitive teeth, gum disease, or worn tooth enamel.

Is teeth whitening worth the cost?
Some dental insurances don’t cover teeth-whitening treatments, so there are times when the treatment might not be worth the cost. So, if you want to find out how much in-office teeth whitening will cost, call your dental insurance and see if they cover this cosmetic treatment.

Should you use an over-the-counter or professional treatment?
Over-the-counter treatments can be used within the walls of your own home, but they might require a longer treatment time. They might also irritate your gums or cause damage to your previous dental work. In-office treatments are quicker treatments that give you a white smile within one or two appointments. Results from in-office treatments can also last a long period of time.
