Tooth Whitening: What The ADA Has To Say

Pendleton cosmetic smile makeover

When a cosmetic dentistry procedure becomes popular, it’s natural to want to experience the dramatic results for yourself. However, responsible dental patients should know what the American Dental Association has to say regarding common cosmetic dentistry procedures such as teeth whitening.

The ADA advises patients to communicate with with their dentist before starting any bleaching regimen. An oral examination will help your dentist know if teeth whitening is for you. This is especially critical when you have dark stains on your teeth or multiple crowns and/or fillings.

Once you have agreed on a tooth whitening protocol, your dentist can supervise your use of whichever bleaching agent you have chosen. This will help you get the best results.

You may choose to have your teeth whitened at your dentist’s office. In-office teeth whitening procedures take much less time than at-home whitening, but it’s vital to find out which procedure is right for you.

Also, if you are shopping for whitening tooth products, be sure to look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance.

Along with tooth whitening, there are many other innovative cosmetic dentistry procedures your dentist can recommend. These will help you achieve the brilliant smile you want. These include dental implants, gum contouring, veneers, and more!
