Should I have professional teeth whitening?

Professional teeth whitening is an excellent way to restore the whiteness and sheen that teeth naturally lose over time. However, it is not right for everyone. In general, whitening is best for those whose teeth are healthy but yellowed or discolored. Those with underlying dental disease may need to have it treated first. Very deep staining or pitting may need to be resolved with veneers or crowns rather than whitening. If you already have fillings or crowns on your front teeth, whitening will not affect them. In addition, if you have a very gummy smile or exposed roots, whitening may accentuate these issues. Dental offices often have multiple whitening options, including in-office and take-home whitening. All options are more efficient and effective than any products that can be bought in a store. Your dentist will help you decide whether professional whitening is the best option for you.
