Whitening Keep it Professional and Be Safe

When it comes to tooth whitening it is essential that you play it safe. If you don’t you could end up with sensitive teeth. Worse yet, you could end up with teeth that are blue or see through.

A Dentist You Can Trust

Northwest Center for Dentistry is the dentist you can trust for all of your cosmetic dentistry needs, including teeth bleaching.

Teeth whitening is used on its own, but is sometimes used with other types of cosmetic dentistry. Your Seattle cosmetic dentist will usually bleach your teeth first before placing porcelain veneers or bonding your teeth as this will keep them uniform in color.

Teeth Whitening in Seattle

Dr. Tom Sweeney, Dr. Rhys Spoor and Dr. Richard Anson offer patients two types of tooth bleaching.

For people who need white teeth yesterday, the in-office method is the best as you can lighten teeth up to 10 shades in a single dental appointment. While everyone is different the process takes between one and two hours to complete.

People who can wait a couple of weeks will see just as stunning results with custom made take home trays.

Both of these professional teeth whitening methods are monitored by Dr. Rhys Spoor, Dr. Tom Sweeney or Dr. Richard Anson. Having someone oversee the process is vital.

DIY Teeth Whitening Kits

Five years ago the only place you could find professional bleaching was from a cosmetic dentist. Fast forward to today and professional kits are sold online. While this may sound tempting it can be unsafe for teeth and gums.

Prescription lighting kits should only be prescribed by a doctor. Because these bleaching products are stronger you can easily hurt your gums and your teeth.

Although over the counter kits are not as strong they can be just as dangerous as well because people have a tendency to use too much bleach too often.

Professional Teeth Whitening is Best

For stained teeth Dr. Richard Ansong, Dr. Rhys Spoor and Dr. Tom Sweeney recommend both types of whitening solutions.

With that being said some patients prefer both types of bleaching as the custom made take home kits will keep your teeth bright between bi annual professional teeth whitening sessions.

Cosmetic Dentistry with the Best

For all of your cosmetic dentistry needs you won’t find a better dentist. Schedule your consultation to find out which solutions are best for you. Who knows, all you may need is one whitening session to give you the smile you deserve.
