Having a whiter and brighter smile is quite convenient. It improves your appearance, boosts your self-esteem, and increases your self-confidence. It even makes talking and smiling much easier. When you decide to whiten your smile, it’s best to choose the right product for you and your teeth. To help you do so, our dentist, Dr. Cody Skinner, has some whitening facts for you so you can learn a little more.

The first fact is that it is difficult to whiten the teeth when you have dental crowns, dental veneers, and other dental restorations in your smile. This is because the restoration’s material doesn’t change the way your tooth enamel does. However, there is still hope. It’s best to start by using over-the-counter whitening toothpaste and whitening mouthwash. You should also only drink stain-causing beverages through a straw.

The second fact is that you can always find a whitening treatment that can fit your schedule, whether you choose over-the-counter or professional in-office treatments. In-office treatments can give you a whiter smile in just one quick appointment. This is very convenient if you don’t have time to use an over-the-counter treatment for weeks at a time. Over-the-counter treatments can whiten the smile within the walls of your own home and they don’t typically require a trip to the dental office. You can whiten your chompers while you’re making dinner, talking on the phone, and watching a movie.
