I am getting married next month and I am very embarrassed about my teeth. After paying for a wedding I don’t have the money for a dentist who wanted to charge me $600. I am considering a home teeth whitening program but I don’t want to waste my money. Do they work? Are they easy to use? Thanks
Q Yes home teeth whitening kits can work. However, when picking an at-home whitener, use common sense. Don’t be fooled by false whitening claims as not all kits are created equal.
I recently consulted with friend of mine from the dental field who runs a site called Cool Teeth Whitening and she answered some “Frequently Asked Questions” I want to share with you.
What is cool teeth whitening?
A high quality whitener will have a strong carbamide peroxide solution which allows the shorter period of time for results. However, due to the high concentration of this product, people with sensitive teeth teeth and gums should use caution.
How does it work?
Years of clinical tests have demonstrated the safety and effectiveness of teeth whitening systems. Over 95% of people treated achieve some level of tooth whitening. Crowns, bridges, bondings, and fillings do not lighten.
Is this whitening going to be permanent?
Exposure to foods, drinks (especially coffee, colas and red wines), smoking and other consumables will gradually darken teeth again over time. You may want to periodically bleach your teeth. After an initial treatment, most people do touch-ups about once every 6-12 months.
Are there any side effects? Is it safe to use at home?
Some people experience temporary tooth sensitivity during treatment. Others have reported discomfort in the gums or in loose fillings. Gum irritation usually disappears within 1-3 days after beginning the procedure and always upon the discontinuation or completion of treatment. There are no other significant side effects.
