When a cosmetic dentistry procedure becomes popular in the Belmont, Comstock Park, Grand Rapids, Sparta, Walker and Rockford, MI, areas, it’s natural to want to experience the dramatic results for yourself. However, responsible dental patients should know what the American Dental Association has to say regarding common cosmetic dentistry procedures such as teeth whitening.
The ADA advises patients to meet with their dentist before starting any bleaching regimen. An oral examination that is in-depth will help your dentist to know if tooth whitening is for you. This is especially vital when you have dark stains on your teeth or multiple crowns and/or fillings.
Once you have agreed on a tooth whitening technique, your dentist can supervise your use of whichever bleaching agent you have chosen. This will help you to be sure that the frequency of use of your teeth whitener is never too high.
Or, you and your dentist may choose to have your teeth whitened in the office. Zoom in-office teeth whitening takes much less time than at-home whitening.
Also, if you are shopping for whitening tooth products at your favorite Grand Rapids, Walker, or Sparta drugstore, be sure to look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance.
Along with tooth whitening, there are many other innovative cosmetic dentistry procedures your dentist can recommend, which will help you achieve the dazzling smile you want. These include dental implants, bonding,veneers, and more!
