Having a bright and radiant smile is often associated with confidence and a positive self-image. Teeth whitening has gained popularity as a way to achieve that dazzling smile, but is it suitable for everyone?

Is teeth whitening suitable for everyone - Excellence In DentistryGood Candidates for Teeth Whitening

  1. Extrinsic Stains: People with extrinsic stains caused by external factors like coffee, tea, red wine, or tobacco use tend to respond well to teeth whitening. These stains are typically on the surface of the teeth and can be effectively lifted through whitening treatments.
  2. Healthy Teeth and Gums: Candidates with a healthy oral hygiene routine and no underlying dental issues such as cavities or gum disease are more likely to be suitable for teeth whitening. It’s recommended to address any dental problems before considering whitening procedures.
  3. Realistic Expectations: Those with realistic expectations about the outcome of teeth whitening are more likely to be satisfied with the results. While teeth can become significantly whiter, they may not reach a level of whiteness that appears unnatural.
  4. Commitment to Maintenance: Individuals willing to maintain good oral hygiene practices and make necessary lifestyle changes, such as avoiding staining foods and beverages, are better candidates for maintaining the results of teeth whitening over time.

Considerations and Limitations

  1. Intrinsic Stains: Some stains, known as intrinsic stains, are located deep within the tooth structure and may not respond well to traditional teeth whitening methods. These stains could be a result of certain medications, trauma, or natural tooth discolouration. In such cases, alternative cosmetic options like veneers may be more suitable.
  2. Sensitivity: Teeth whitening procedures can cause temporary tooth sensitivity, especially in individuals with existing tooth sensitivity. While this is generally mild and subsides after treatment, those with severe sensitivity might need to explore alternative options or consult their dentist.
  3. Restorations: Dental restorations like crowns, veneers, and fillings do not respond to teeth whitening treatments. If a person has these restorations, they should discuss options with their dentist to ensure uniformity in their smile.
  4. Age and Pregnancy: The safety of teeth whitening during pregnancy or for individuals under a certain age is a topic of debate. It’s advisable for pregnant individuals and minors to consult their dentist before undergoing any teeth whitening procedures.

Have been coming to this practice for years, despite it being a good long drive. Initially I had concerns when Andre handed the reigns over, but these concerns proved unfounded as the team continued to be just as kind, caring and attentive as always. Any dental work is always carried out thoroughly and diligently and I always leave feeling like nothing has been missed or rushed. In addition, the practice uses ‘the wand’ for anaesthesia, a barely noticeable and ultra fine needle that administers slowly and without much discomfort. As someone who has a fear of needles this has helped hugely. I often struggle with tooth sensitivity so the hygienist visit is always something I dread, but Agota’s reassuring and patient attitude makes things go much more smoothly. Honestly can’t recommend them highly enough.

Highly recommend. I’ve been coming here for over 20 years. It’s not local to me but I travel here because it’s worth it. The care here is truly excellent. I was worried when Andre retired but Keelin is every bit as good and so I will continue to come here.

Great dental practice. Brilliant with all the family and expert advice. They are really good at making anxious patients feel calm and explain any treatments fully with you. State of the art equipment, TV screens and music to make you feel relaxed. Both my kids also having orthodontic treatment here. Highly recommend....
