Are You a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

If you want to make a good impression on people, it’s important that you are dressed well, are well-groomed, and have a winning smile. Of course, a winning smile means teeth that are straight and bright and white. The thing is that not everyone is born with a great smile and so many substances out there will tarnish your smile over time. Thankfully, Orange County cosmetic dentist Dao Kim Pham-Nguyen can help you through teeth whitening treatment.

You may be wondering what teeth whitening treatment involves and if you are a good candidate for it. If so, you’re in luck, because that’s just what we’re going to cover right now.

Professional teeth whitening is much different that over-the-counter teeth whitening options. The main difference between professional Orange County teeth whitening and those store-bought teeth whitening products is effectiveness. While store-bought teeth whitening products can be somewhat effective at brightening a smile, a single professional teeth whitening treatment can potentially lighten a smile by up to 10 whole shades.

The best candidates for profession teeth whitening are people who have surface stains on the teeth. These stains may be caused by beverages (coffee, tea, cola, or red wine), foods (blueberries, blackberries, beets, curries), tobacco products (cigarettes, cigars, chewing tobacco), or other factors. If the stains originate from within a tooth or are extremely deep, then teeth whitening would only have limited effectiveness and another option (such as porcelain veneers) would be best for treatment.
