One of the simplest ways to improve the look of your smile is by making it brighter and whiter. At Steve A. Sato, DDS, we can help you enhance your smile with professional teeth whitening treatments.
Why Do Teeth Need Whitening?
While there is no medical reason to whiten your teeth, having a brighter smile can enhance your appearance and boost your confidence.
Over time, teeth can become naturally discolored and stained as a result of consuming certain foods and drinks and using tobacco. Additionally, certain medications and medical conditions can also change the color of your teeth.
Do Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening Products Work?
There are many teeth whitening products available over-the-counter to use at home. These include whitening toothpaste, mouth rinses, gels, strips, lights, trays, and more. These teeth whitening products are effective, but they do not whiten teeth as quickly or completely as professional teeth whitening treatments.
Does Teeth Whitening Have Any Negative Side Effects?
It’s safe to whiten your teeth with over-the-counter and professional products. These products can sometimes cause some minor, temporary teeth sensitivity following treatment. To minimize sensitivity, we recommend following product instructions as closely as possible and check with Dr. Soto before using a product at home.
Additionally, professional whitening treatments come with desensitizing agents designed to minimize sensitivity as a result of teeth whitening.
