Whitening Your Teeth

Family DentistrySo, are you getting ready to bleach your teeth (teeth whitening), but you’re just unsure on what to expect? Well, let me explain to you on what you should expect while you’re bleaching your teeth.

In House Or Dentist’s Office

Now, depending on what type of treatment you’re going to have to bleach your teeth, whether it’s the in-office procedure, or the take home bleaching kit, you definitely would need to expect first and foremost you might have some sensitivity with bleaching due to the fact that; especially if you never bleached before, then you’d be more susceptible for sensitivity, because the bleach is actually, it’s removing the stains and it’s microscopically you know entering into your dental enamel.

Sensitive Teeth

Also too, if you bleach your teeth too much you can actually bleach your teeth to where they become translucent on the edges of your tooth. You can actually start to; it’s like almost like a gray-white translucent type appearance, so you really have to be careful on not to bleach your teeth too much.

Recurring Stains

And also too, after bleaching your teeth, or you know rough out the process of bleaching your teeth  you definitely will need to expect that you might get what we call is reoccurring stains as with anything. It’s like staining a white T-shirt. Any type of food products that you consume as far as like coffee, caffeine, coke, you know mustard, wine, soy sauce, any type of products that can stain a white T-shirt will stain your teeth, because your teeth are very porous after you bleach them. So, expect reccurring stains, some sensitivity, but you know address these issues with your general dentist, so therefore he might be able to prescribe some fluoride treatments for you, or an over the counter Sensodyne toothpaste that you can purchase.  – eHow
