Scottsdale, AZ (PressExposure) May 18, 2009 -- These days we find many people with discolored teeth. Smoking, drinking many cups of tea or coffee, chemical compounds in the food, or some physical ailments lead to discoloration of teeth. Sometimes it is genetic. In order to have sparkling white teeth more and more people are going in for cosmetic dentistry. Dental office whitening is a part of cosmetic dentistry which visibly improves the look of our teeth.
Dental office whitening in cosmetic dentistry is opted by many as they feel that the procedure is safe and produces results immediately. Whitening our teeth with the help of a cosmetic dentist is a better option than doing it at home. Of course you can get a teeth whitening kit from the pharmacy but you can never be sure that it will work. A number of times you may not be choosing the right product out of ignorance and as a result may not get the desired result.
The first advantage of dental office whitening is that you can get expert advice as to what is best for you. You may be able to put together a lot of information from the Internet but it may be difficult for you to decide what suits you the best. Cosmetic dentist is the best person to advice you on that. He or she will examine your teeth and give you specific information before suggesting the right option.
Secondly, dental office whitening procedures are considered to be safer. When you are going for cosmetic dentistry you want it to work for you without harming your teeth or gums. In dental office whitening you will be under the supervision of the dentist all the time. He/she will make sure to protect your gums with protective gels before starting with the bleaching procedures.
Laser bleaching is another option that is used in cosmetic dentistry. It should be done as a part of dental office whitening. Using a high intensity light directed toward your teeth can be accomplished perfectly at the dentist's clinic. At home there are more chances of things going wrong and harming our teeth and gum. In case of laser whitening, your eyes are also to be protected with goggles.
The products used in dental office whitening are the best. We are often not aware of all the products available. Many times what the dentists use for cosmetic dentistry may not be available commercially. The teeth whitening will be successful only when the correct product is used and, you on our own may not be able to find the right product.
Another advantage of dental office whitening is that it is faster and more effective. It may take you one visit and a few hours to get sparkling white teeth. It may be a little expensive than the home procedure but it saves you from other worries. One can make few visits subsequently to take advice and checkup.
If you are sure that you want to go in for cosmetic dentistry go in for dental office whitening. It is always better to undertake such procedures under specialized supervision. At-home whitening can be work as follow up action to maintain the whiteness.
