Tooth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedure in the world with people opting for both over the counter and professional tooth whitening treatments. However, those over the counter tooth whitening products are not as safe as professional tooth whitening products.
The Problem with Over the Counter Products
Even though there is less active ingredient in pastes, trays, gels, rinses and strips people tend to use over the counter tooth whitening products too often. People also have a tendency to use too much.
Too much tooth whitening can make teeth and gum sensitive, but can also cause permanent damage. According to your cosmetic dentist in Delray Beach, over whitening can turn teeth blue and chalky. Unfortunately, this can be permanent.
Professional Tooth Whitening and Cosmetic Dentistry
Dr. George Sanchez is a preferred Kor Tooth Whitening provider and has the experience to give you a beautiful bright smile. The Kor System is an amazing tooth whitening procedure. Kor can even help lift some intrinsic stains caused by antibiotic use or too much fluoride as a child.
With that being said, some stains are impossible to lift. If your stained teeth cannot be lighted with professional tooth whitening products, cosmetic dentistry may be the only solution. Also, teeth that are restored with tooth colored fillings, porcelain veneers, dental implants and cosmetic dental bonding will not change color and cannot be lightened either.
Cosmetic Dentistry when Whitening Won’t Work
If you have teeth that have been previously restored, ask your Delray Beach cosmetic dentist about a makeover. Dr. Sanchez can repair or replace old veneers and cosmetic dental bonding and can give your smile a lift with new cosmetic dental bonding.
