Teeth whitening in Elmhurst, NY is an easy procedure to do at your dentist, and there are a few ways to go about it. Dr. Vinit Shah Dentist provides information and options for you to make a choice about improving your teeth.
Before teeth whitening can begin though, there are a few steps we need to go over with you. For the best chances of success when we whiten your teeth, we need to have a good base to start with. That means treating your teeth and cleaning them thoroughly.
Any cavities you have should be treated and filled before teeth whitening. You don’t want any of the products we used to get through to the inside of your teeth. That can hurt and cause infections. It is important to also know that if your gums have receded or lowered then the part of your tooth that was once covered can’t be whitened. That’s because the roots of your teeth are different from your exposed tooth.
Whitening can irritate tooth decay or make your teeth more sensitive. It also cannot change the color of non-natural teeth such as implants, veneers, or crowns. Those are made of materials that are designed as a certain color. Of course, at Dr. Vinit Shah, Dentist if you want to improve the color of your unnatural teeth we have options to assist you.
Cleaning your teeth before a teeth whitening is integral to the process. You want to get rid of any bacteria or food that’s lingering on or around your teeth so that the whole tooth is available. Otherwise the whitening can appear patchy or unseemly.
