You can’t control the weather for the holidays, but you can control just how sparkling white your beautiful smile can be. This is the perfect time of year to have your teeth professionally whitened. Many of your family and friends won’t know what it is about you that is different, but they will know that you look great. Teeth Whitening is an easy procedure that is an available option for most patients, but there are times when Dr. Wells would warn against negative effects. This is why buying over-the-counter whitening kits can have bad aesthetic results.
Before whitening your teeth, Dr. Wells will want to know about any previous dental work that you have had done on your teeth. This includes fillings, veneers, and dental crowns. Because the bleaching agent reacts differently to natural tooth structure than it does to restorative materials, he may advise against teeth whitening if you have restorations, such as dental crowns, in your front teeth.
If you don’t have any dental crowns or porcelain veneers, chances are that you are a good candidate for teeth whitening. You can even get in-office whitening treatment. In one visit. you can lighten your teeth 4 shades. That’s fast results! Call today for a consultation with Dr. Wells DDS.
