Who Needs Whitening?
Whitening is recommended for anyone who feels that they could improve the coloration of their teeth. Teeth staining can happen over time due to age, medication, smoking, or repetitive exposure to dark liquids. Most adults can have whitening done with no negative side effects. If you have any allergies, you may want to discuss these with your dentist, to ensure that you are not allergic to any ingredients in whitening solutions.
At Home Products
There are many at-home products that promise to whiten your teeth. These products, however, may not be recommended by dental professionals. When you do whitening at home, you will not have the professional supervision you would have at the dentist's office. It is also difficult to adjust the intensity of the whitening session for your particular level of staining.
When you have professional teeth whitening done in Wichita, KS, your teeth can be examined first to gauge the severity of staining. This information will then be used to customize your whitening session. This will ensure that you can achieve the exact shade of witness you are hoping for. Your dentist will be able to adjust the intensity of the whitening formula being used to give safe, effective treatment.
Having this service done professionally can also be a safer option as the dental team will be on hand if you start to have a negative reaction to the whitening formula for any reason.
