Teeth Whitening 101

Dark foods and beverages along with any tobacco use could cause your teeth to dull or stain. Did you know that aging can also cause your teeth to dull? Cosmetic dentistry has become extremely popular to boost your smile and has been proven effective. Because there are many different teeth whitening products in the realm of cosmetic dentistry, knowing the primary cause will help with determining which whitening product is right for you.

The first thing to remember is to always talk to your dentist, Dr. Jason Roe, before starting any whitening products. Dr. Jason Roe is an expert, trained to understand your specific needs and will know what is best for you. Many people turn to whitening toothpaste for the minor surface stains on their teeth. However, because of the high concentration of peroxide in the toothpaste, they could cause sensitivity and will not be able to reduce moderate or deep stains on your teeth.

Whitening strips have become popular because of their convenience. They work by applying them to your teeth about a half hour at a time. However, overexposure can cause heightened tooth sensitivity and you will need to avoid eating, drinking, and any tobacco use while wearing them.
