Answers to Common Questions About Teeth Whitening

dca-blog_teeth-whitening-two-women-pointing

Having white teeth does wonders for your self-confidence. When years of drinking coffee or tea take their toll, your dentist can rescue you from a life of hiding your yellow smile. In-office and over-the-counter teeth whitening treatments use powerful peroxide-based bleaching agents and sometimes light or heat to remove stubborn stains and discoloration to restore a healthy gleam. If you’re not familiar with whitening treatments, it’s important to get the facts. Here are answers to some of the most common questions dental patients ask about teeth whitening procedures.

  • How Can I Determine the Best Teeth Whitening Treatment for Me? 


  • Your dentist is the most qualified to determine the best teeth whitening method for you. Call your dentist in Rockledge today, so you can start working together to create a whiter smile.

  • Can My Tooth Enamel or Nerves Get Damaged by Teeth Whitening Products?
  • Whitening products using 10 percent carbamide peroxide demonstrated no effect on the mineral content or hardness of tooth enamel in multiple studies. For information about stronger in-office bleaching agents, consult your dentist. 

 There is no evidence to date that suggests that teeth whitening procedures damage a tooth’s nerve in any way.

  • Will Teeth Whitening Harm My Crowns or Other Dental Restorations? 


  • Whitening teeth does not damage existing fillings; however, treatments cannot lighten restoration materials, so crowns, veneers, bondings, and bridges will retain their existing color while natural teeth will lighten. If you have your teeth whitened, you may need to have preexisting dental work replaced so that it matches your new tooth shade; this is especially true if any of your highly visible front teeth have been restored.

  • Are Teeth Whitening Procedures Covered by Dental Insurance?
  • Teeth bleaching whitening procedures are considered to be cosmetic, so dental insurance does not cover the cost. You may be able to afford the treatments by qualifying for third-party financing and making monthly payments.
