Are You a Good Candidate for Professional Teeth Whitening?

dca-blog_teeth-whitening-tooth-comparison

Almost everyone experiences some tooth discoloration or staining eventually. If you drink tea, coffee or red wine, these will leave stains over time. Smoking or chewing tobacco, taking certain medications and even suffering a dental injury can also lead to discoloration. Some causes of yellowing teeth are beyond your control. As you age, your tooth enamel thins, and this makes your teeth appear more yellow. In most cases, professional teeth whitening treatments can restore your smile’s former glory and give you back the ability to smile without feeling embarrassed.

Who Are the Ideal Candidates for Teeth Whitening?

The best candidates for professional teeth whitening have healthy teeth without fillings or restorations and healthy gum tissues. Patients whose teeth have yellow tones are more likely to respond to treatment.

Teeth Bleaching Whitening Treatments Aren’t Right for Everyone

Not everyone can have a tooth whitening treatment safely or effectively. Patients with the following conditions or circumstances may not be the best candidates:

  • Pregnant and lactating women
  • People who have restorations such as fillings, implants, crowns and dental bridges
  • Children under 16 years of age
  • Patients with periodontal disease, tooth decay, cavities and exposed roots
  • People who are allergic to teeth bleaching whitening agents like peroxide
  • Individuals with sensitive teeth
  • Those who seek unrealistic or blinding-white results

Barriers to Successful Teeth Whitening

If you have fillings or other materials in your mouth, special considerations are necessary. Because crowns, bridges and other inorganic restorations are immune to the effects of tooth whitening, your natural teeth and restored teeth may not match after the procedure. If uneven color is likely to be a problem, your dentist may be able to develop a strategy to get more consistent results. In some cases, new fillings or other restorations may be required. Even if whitening is not a viable option, your dentist offers many other ways to perfect your smile such as veneers or bonding.
