Is teeth whitening safe?

Are your teeth not as bright and dazzling as they could be? You might be considering whitening your teeth to erase years of stains (and coffee breaks).

As with any dental procedure, it's always encouraged to consider possible risks with your Missoula dentist before buying costly (and potentially harmful) store brands. 

While teeth whitening is minimally invasive, there remains the possibility of damaging the enamel, gum tissue, and the roots of your teeth.

Through modern advancements in cosmetic dentistry, we can minimize tooth sensitivity and damage by creating precise fitting teeth whitening trays that don't allow bleaching gel to leak. 

Why Do Teeth Become Yellow?

Many factors can discolor teeth, including smoking, drinking wine and coffee, and even certain antibiotics and medication.

At Nelson Dentistry, we can remove many stains that accumulate while also making sure your teeth and gums are clean and healthy. Be sure to visit your Missoula cosmetic dentist before whitening your teeth; a dental cleaning can remove plaque and ensure a uniformly white smile. 

Professional Teeth Whitening Is Safe

Many of our patients enjoy the success of in-office teeth whitening to remove even stubborn dark stains. 

Improper use of bleaching gel can easily create adverse oral health effects, a factor our patients at Nelson Dentistry don't need to worry about. There is less risk of damage or irritating gums when managed by a dental professional.
