Dentist Supplies: The 411 on Teeth Whitening

dental hygiene productsTeeth whitening has become a major topic of discussion over the past few years and you can’t turn on the television without seeing at least one commercial for over-the-couner teeth whitening kits. However, we hear a lot of mixed reviews on how good or bad these at-home dentist supplies are. Whether you’ve tried these kits before or just want to receive a 100% guarantee, teeth whitening procedures done by your dentist do work and most of the time only require one visit.

In-office whitening will use a concentrated peroxide gel that can remove most stains. If there are stubborn stains, the dentist may ask you to come in for a second treatment. While teeth whitening is a perfectly safe procedure, there are a few minor risks such as temporary sensitivity and gum irritation. Both will only last  a few days and not everyone will experience them.

Having this procedure done is not cheap so always follow proper care afterward. Avoid dark colored food and beverages for the first week after the procedure. When possible, sip dark colored drinks through a straw. The dentist may want you to use at-home whitening care to maintain your teeth. Always use recommended dentist supplies and practice good oral hygiene. If you’re not happy with over-the-counter treatments, talk to your dentist today about whitening procedures. Whether you’re a dentist or a consumer, you can find great teeth whitening products from Dealon Dental at the lowest industry prices.
