Dealing with teeth, which do not look white and bright due to stains or other issues can often have a negative impact on how a person looks. Many times, if a person feels their teeth are unsightly, they may be reluctant to smile and this can effect how others perceive them. Because of this, if you are dealing with this type of issue you need to see your dentist about Teeth Whitening Treatment options.

Many people who have issues with the look of their teeth may try a variety of over the counter teeth whitening products. While some of these products may work, the majority do not. To really get your teeth looking their whitest, you will need to see a dentist for professional teeth whitening or tooth bleaching treatment.

One of the first things a dentist will do is to spend time having your teeth professionally cleaned before the treatment. By doing this any buildup of plaque and/or tartar can be removed. This will also allow the whitening agent to be applied directly to the surface of the teeth. Doing this, can speed the time it takes for the whitening to begin.

Generally a dentist will spend time apply the whitening product directly to the teeth. By brushing it on, the dentist can ensure it gets between the cracks of the teeth and coats the entire surface. After this is done, a dental tray filled with whitening agent will be applied to your teeth. A laser light or UV lamp will be applied to the product so it is activated quickly and thoroughly. This process will also speed up the treatment.

Once the whitening product is removed, you should begin to see results immediately. This can be a great improvement in how your teeth look and how you feel about yourself. While some times you may only need one whitening treatment, in some cases the dentist may recommend you return for more treatments.

To really get your teeth looking as white as possible you should consider seeing a dentist, like Joseph A. Schell D.D.S. S.C. He has the knowledge and skills to help get your teeth looking their best.
