Teeth whitening is a very common, and safe, cosmetic dentistry service. Nevertheless, there are safety tips to keep in mind. And that’s what we’d like to focus on in today’s post. Over the course of this post, we’ll offer some things to keep in mind as you consider whether teeth whitening is right for you.
Visit Juno Beach for a Dental Exam and Cleaning
The first safety tip to keep in mind is that, before you start any cosmetic or restorative services, you should visit your Juno Beach dentist for a dental exam and cleaning. Through a cleaning and exam, Dr. Keuning and Dr. Riley can help you remove staining through a professional cleaning. What’s more, they can help you identify gum disease or cavities, which must be treated before starting any cosmetic or restorative care.
Follow Instructions Exactly
Once you have your take-home teeth whitening kit, follow instructions exactly as given to you. Wearing your whitening trays for longer than prescribed can damage teeth and cause problems with sensitivity. You can protect your teeth and ensure that your treatment is more comfortable by only wearing your trays for as long as you’re supposed each day.
You should also limit yourself to one or two touchups a year. When your teeth have reached their whitest, that’s all that’s needed to help you keep your smile as bright and dazzling as you’d like for them to be.
