Teeth whitening treatments are gaining in popularity, and for good reason. They offer quick, routine procedures to turn teeth from yellow to pearly white. A customer can have an improved smile within weeks. But, before you get too excited at the opportunity for whiter teeth, understand that whitening is not for everyone. Specifically, it is not for those with cavities or tooth decay. Buy Pure Smile teeth whitening products at lower prices. SHOP NOW
Cavities and Teeth Whitening—Not a Good Combination
If you haven’t already been told by a dentist, let us be the first to inform you that cavities do not get along well with whitening gels. The bleach used in teeth bleaching is the most part of hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide is a chemical that can perturb overly sensitive teeth. Even a completely healthy tooth can become irritated by whitening bleach. In some cases, teeth imposed by the cavity/bleach combination can be permanently ruined. Shop our whitening kit here
Similarly, a decayed tooth will also amp up sensitivity. Ultimately, you want your teeth to be healthy at the time of whitening treatment. If one or more of them are not healthy, you may be in for a painful few days, at the very least. All it takes is treatment before treatment. Be sure to have cavities filled and your teeth restored before undergoing a whitening treatment. Once your dentist repairs any subpar teeth, you should be okay to proceed with your chosen teeth improving method.
Always See a Dentist
Even if you brush every day and have never had a problem, it is still wise to get an expert opinion on any type of treatment. You may even be able to get the green light from your dentist over the phone. If your dentist has just recently checked on your teeth then he/she should be able to recall their overall health and skim through your dental records. You can contact us prior to booking an appointment to find out if we have any whitening specials available. Book your 30-minute session.
