Dr. Music offers tooth whitening services that utilize the newest, safest technology for fast results and lasting beauty. Tooth whitening is performed through various products. The options on the marketing can be staggering, but Dr. Music’s experience and knowledge will help you to choose the system that will be most effective for you. The two primary types of whitening are in-office systems like Zoom and OTC (over-the-counter) solutions such as whitening toothpastes. Both should be used with professional advice to ensure effectiveness and tooth health. Our office has been helping patients in the Fairmont area with whiter smiles from our effective teeth whitening programs.
WHICH WHITENING SYSTEM CAN HELP YOU?
It’s not always an easy question to answer. Tooth staining occurs due to a variety of causes, and some are more responsive to various whitening systems than others. For instance, some tooth stains start inside the tooth. This is generally caused by medications, fluorosis, or even injury. In this case, OTC systems will not be effective in reducing the stains, while the Zoom in office system may be able to help.
On the other hand, common discoloration comes from exposing the teeth to tobacco, tea, soy sauce, wine, and other corrosive and staining foods and drinks. The result is surface stains, which tend to get worse over time as the tooth “learns” to absorb more and more of the contaminant.
In this case, OTC systems as simple as whitening toothpaste may be helpful. However, abrasive ingredients in the toothpaste could potentially damage your teeth even as they are whitened. OTC systems are also less effective on teeth that are pitted and on stains that are brown or grayish. Whitening also tends to be ineffective on crowns, bonding, fillings, and bridges. This is why it’s important to consult a professional before committing to a particular system.
