About Teeth Whitening

Food becomes attracted to the enamel of the teeth after having certain foods and beverage. Some stains are very hard to solve on their own without the help of a Nicholasville family dentist and an in-office teeth whitening visit.

Professional teeth whitening is one of the safest ways to improve the color of your teeth. It’s important that a thorough dental exam is performed before tooth whitening is formed. For example, cavities need to be treated before teeth are whitened because the solution cannot pass through decayed areas. If you have tooth decay or even receding gums, whitening may make your teeth very sensitive. Please note that whitening also doesn’t work on crowns or veneers.

Whitening can be done in the office. A dentist typically first photographs your teeth first which helps them to monitor your progress. They will also ask questions about how the staining occurred. Next, your teeth will be cleaned to remove any bacteria or food that is built up on the teeth. After that is completed, the teeth whitening procedure begins. The teeth are prepared with a substance that protects the gums. A whitening agent is applied and a laser light is used to lighten the teeth.

If you are interested to find out what teeth whitening can do for you and your teeth, call Dr. Eschelbach in Nicholasville, KY today to schedule your appointment to discuss this safe procedure.
