You don’t necessarily have to be an avid coffee or tea drinker for your teeth to become discolored. Simple daily foods over the course of time can cause discoloration and for many people, their teeth color can be the source of embarrassment.

Professional tooth whitening can assist most people in bringing back their smile. But, when is it time to call in the professionals? To help make the decision, here are some things you should consider;

  • Professional tooth whitening will brighten your teeth and aid in giving you a prettier and youthful smile.
  •  Professional tooth whitening is preferable to at home whitening as the process is quicker and often less messy. Tooth whitening can be accomplished in one visit instead of over a long period of time.
  •  Some people may experience sore gums as a result from the bleaching agent used to whiten the teeth. While this symptom disappears after the process has been completed, it can cause discomfort for someone with sensitive gums. Please let your dentist know if this is the case for you.
  •  Remember that a professional tooth bleaching is temporary and must be repeated regularly if you want to keep optimum results.
