Teeth whitening has quickly become one of the most sought after cosmetic treatments from the experts at Point Family Dentistry & Orthodontics. As your cosmetic dentist for the Minneapolis area, Dr. Isaacson provides some important points to keep in mind to ensure that your teeth whitening experience is a complete success:
1.Oral health—It’s vital you have healthy gums and teeth prior to the whitening process. Issues including periodontal disease, infections, cracked or sensitive teeth and tooth decay should be diagnosed and treated before proceeding with teeth whitening. This limits unnecessary discomfort and complications from the whitening procedure.
2.Consult Your Dentist—Your dentist has the qualifications and modern technology to examine you for oral health problems as well as diagnose and treat them effectively. He can also provide vital information about the different whitening procedures so you can choose the best option for you.
3.Professional Whitening—The American Dental Association recommends that if you choose to have your teeth whitened or use a bleaching product, you should do so only after consulting with a dentist. Dr. Isaacson has the skill & expertise to ensure that the whitening process is performed correctly under his professional supervision. Over-the-counter whitening products can damage tissue in the mouth if not applied properly, and can contain lower-grade, diluted whitening gel with less than favorable results.
4.Restorations—Remember that whitening treatments are only effective on natural teeth and not on restorations such as veneers, crowns, tooth colored fillings and cosmetic bonding. Talk to your dentist about how to ensure that the color of your restorations match the teeth whitening results.
