Sure shot way of whitening your teeth Newington, CT


Most of us are in awe when we see television advertisements with people showing off their sparkling white teeth and wish we too had such bright white teeth  as well. This can translate into reality if we get tooth whitening done. For those of you who wish to understand tooth whitening in greater depth, read on.

The process of tooth whitening involves application of  whitening agents or substances over the enamel of the teeth,  which bleach the teeth, resulting in whiter teeth.

While getting your teeth whitened, it is important for you to first understand if you have a set of teeth on which whitening will work, because not all types of teeth can be whitened. Certain teeth discoloration such as gray teeth cannot hold the whitening agent and hence cannot be whitened. Such discoloration  can be dealt with by  root canal treatment or veneers.

Coming to the methods of tooth whitening, there are different ways in which you can go about getting it done, depending on the materials used. While the most effective method of tooth whitening is the one done in a dentist’s office, there are other means   such as over-the-counter whitening kits available at stores and pharmacy.  The flip side of these methods is that they take longer to  show results, the effect does not last long and hence might test your patience.

There are certain gels, strips, and mouth rinses which help in tooth whitening. But, as mentioned earlier, these might not be the most effective  methods for getting your teeth whitened.  However, over a longer  period  of time, they will surely show some results. Depending on the effectiveness of the whitening agent used, the duration of application time  will be determined.

While there are no significant side effects of getting your teeth whitened, the only possible after effect of the treatment would be a certain level of sensitivity in the tooth. This mostly results from the whitening agent entering the inside region of the tooth.
