Tooth Whitening and Your Dentist

Tooth whitening has become one of the most popular dental procedures in California. It seems that everyone in La Mesa is whitening their teeth to help their smiles look younger and brighter. Many consumers in the area are turning to over-the-counter solutions to whiten their teeth, however their can be dangers and pitfalls to this approach.

Here is some basic advice on tooth whitening from cosmetic dentist Jeff Gray DDS:

First, we encourage you to visit our office in La Mesa before starting a tooth whitening system. It is a good idea to have your teeth checked and analyzed before starting a tooth whitening program. Tooth whitening is not for everyone, and depends on your dental history.

There are many pitfalls to be aware of when whitening your teeth. Over-the-counter teeth whitening products available in the La Mesa area will provide varying degrees of effectiveness on your teeth. If used improperly, tooth whitening solutions can cause problems including tooth sensitivity, over whitening, damage to your tooth enamel, and irregular coloration. Whitening too much can even have a reverse effect, making your teeth look gray.
