The Benefits of Getting Your Teeth Whitened by a Professional
The Benefits of Getting Your Teeth Whitened by a Professional
April 05, 2019

Many people are interested in having their teeth whitened—it’s a relatively simple and affordable way to improve your appearance and confidence.


While whitening your teeth yourself may seem like an attractive option, it can often be a waste of time and money.


For those who looking for the most effective teeth whitening option, cosmetic dentistry in Toronto is the answer. Here are five benefits you stand to gain from having your teeth whitened by a professional.


1. Deep Cleaning

For a lucky minority, teeth whitening can be done at home because the staining on their teeth only occurs on the surface of their enamel. This type of staining is easy to remove through teeth whitening toothpaste and proper brushing technique. In other cases, one may have deeper stains that would be difficult to remove through conventional methods. If you like your coffee or wine, you may have these deeper stains on your teeth. Smokers also suffer from yellowing of the teeth. A professional of cosmetic dentistry in Toronto can provide a whitening treatment that will penetrate the enamel of your teeth to target intrinsic stains.


2. Safety

Performing a teeth whitening on your own with either over-the-counter products or more professional kits can be risky. A standard whitening strip or tray is made to fit most people’s teeth, but is highly unlikely to fit yours perfectly. A poor fit leads to contact between whitening solutions and your gums, which can then lead to irritation. Continued exposure to bleaching products can degrade your gum health and make your teeth sensitive to certain types of food or liquids. A dental professional will understand the current condition of your teeth and what they can or cannot handle. They will also make sure to protect your gums during the whitening process.


3. Speedier Process

A teeth whitening kit purchased at the pharmacy will instruct prolonged use over a period of at least a few weeks. You can have your teeth whitened much more quickly if you pursue cosmetic dentistry in Toronto. A dental professional can even get your teeth whitened to your desired shade within an hour.


4. Reliable, Long-Lasting Results

In addition to getting you results faster, a professional can provide a whitening treatment that will last longer. Cosmetic dentists have the expertise to determine the most effective whitening method for your unique set of teeth. Whitening strips don’t work for everyone—and if you find they don’t work for you, your best bet is to visit a professional of cosmetic dentistry in Toronto.


5. Customized Treatment

A cosmetic dentist will ask for your dental history to learn about any prior procedures you’ve had on your teeth. This will help them work around treatments that may impact the whitening process. Customized treatment is also necessary if you’re looking to have your teeth whitened to a specific level or your teeth vary in shade.
