Are You Ready For Tooth Whitening?

Many people are excited about the prospect of having their teeth whitened, and they have every right to be. Tooth whitening can improve many areas of your life, as well as give you that radiant smile that everyone wants.

But before you get too excited, you need to make sure your teeth are ready for the tooth whitening treatment. The best way to do this is to have a consultation with your dentist, but to give you an idea of what may need to be done, I’ll give you a few clues as to what may need to be done prior to teeth whitening treatment.

So let’s get started:

If you think that you have problems with receding gums, then you will need this treated before having tooth whitening. This is so the roots don’t get harmed by the whitening chemicals.

Another thing you will need to have sorted is your cavities. If you aren’t regularly going to the dentist, then there’s quite a high chance that you’ll have some cavities that need seeing to before you can be exposed to the whitening chemicals.

Why? Because the whitening chemicals can make your teeth feel a bit sensitive afterwards… and this sensitivity would be 10 times more painful if you have any cavities.

If you have gone to the dentist regularly, then you’ll probably already be aware of this things. But even if you have to have a few things done before the whitening treatment, it’s still going to be worth it in the end. Just think of how great your new white teeth will look afterwards!
