The Things You Didn’t Know About Teeth Whitening

Posted .

Are you interested in whitening your smile? If so, our dentist, Dr. Joyce Bahng, has some information they would like to share with you. The more you know about teeth whitening, the more success you can have with the process.

When it comes to over-the-counter whitening treatments, you might find some success. There is some evidence that some products do successfully whiten the teeth. However, some treatments are very abrasive and can damage the teeth with extended or misuse. If you desire this method of treatment, it’s best to tell your dentist and ask for supervision for the best results possible. For even better results, you can consider a professional whitening treatment at JB Dental Associates and TMD & Sleep Center.

When it comes to the bleaching solution contained in the treatment, your smile is safe. The whitening agent, carbamide peroxide, releases hydrogen peroxide when it contacts water, which is how the bleach whitens the teeth. This process does not soften, weaken, or demineralize the teeth.
