Teeth Whitening Q & A
How Often Should Your Teeth Be Whitened?
Manufacturers of most teeth-whitening systems recommend them only once or twice a year. While at-home whitening kits are less potent, using them too often may damage the delicate enamel of your teeth, leading to decay and other problems.
Having your teeth professionally whitened takes risks out of the procedure and provides you with bright, white teeth. Professional teeth-whitening systems used by Dr. Cortes and his staff offer long-lasting results. In most cases, once Dr. Cortes whitens your teeth, you won’t have to worry about having them touched up until your next Dental Implants san Diego
Is Whitening Toothpaste Safe?
The majority of whitening toothpaste brands on the market use hydrogen peroxide or mild bleaching agents to whiten your teeth. These types of toothpaste are considered safe and can be used on a regular basis without fear of damaging the enamel of your teeth.
If you find a whitening toothpaste contains harsh abrasives, avoid using it. Abrasives can wear away enamel located on the surface of your teeth. Once it’s damaged, your enamel can’t be replaced and is gone forever. If you have questions about which teeth-whitening toothpaste to use, ask Dr. Cortes to recommend one for you.
What are the Benefits of Having Dr. Cortes Whiten Your Teeth?
Having Dr. Cortes and his staff at San Diego Smile Center professionally whiten your teeth offers you several benefits. First, there’s no risk of leaving the solution on too long or using a kit that could harm your teeth. Professional systems also offer results that last much longer than regular, over-the-counter systems that are less potent.
By having Dr. Cortes perform the procedure, you don’t have to worry about preparing the system or the messy cleanup that sometimes comes after. All you have to do is make your appointment, visit Dr. Cortes, and leave his office with whiter, brighter, beautiful teeth.
