Do you want to have extremely white teeth that can shine a room? Most people do, but most people don’t want to turn to the dentist office to get teeth whitening treatment. It’s true that getting treatments can add up and become very expensive. That’s why many people are turning to whitening kits that they can just read the instructions and do at home. Before you start ditching your dentist and start purchasing at home teeth whitening kits, make sure you understand both the pros and cons of such a change.
Let’s start with the pros:
1. The money you would save! It’s true that dentist visits can be pricy. Teeth whitening kits are a cheap alternative if money is an issue.
2. They are really simple and easy to use.
3. The entire process is very comfortable and easy.
4. It’s safe and approved by many doctors.
5. To top it off it’s just more convenient to be able to do it on your time and not have to schedule an appointment.
Now the Cons:
1. You’re teeth and gums can become much more sensitive.
2. It becomes much easier for your teeth to be stained from colored food and other beverages.
3. You won’t be able to identify cavities that are in your mouth.
4. The results can vary from person to person. There is no guarantee that your teeth will look as good as the people who advertise the product.
5. You might stain your teeth so bad that you will need a professional to whiten them.
If you decide to use an in home kit instead of an actual dentist, then you need to understand every aspect of that decision. Before you even begin to use whitening kits of any kind, it would be in your best interest to speak to your dentist about them. They have worked with you and will know what’s best for you. Also, if you ever feel like your gums or teeth begin to feel irritated or become more sensitive, you need to stop right away. If that becomes the case it’s best to go see your doctor as soon as possible. Overall whitening kits can be much cheaper, easier and much more convenient, but they aren’t a replacement for a real dentist. Call Tijuana Dental Studio today to schedule your appointment!
