Every movie actor and television celebrity we see appears to have bright white teeth. People in the Triangle want to have those same brilliant smiles as well. Cary-based dentist Dr. E. Scott Saltzman includes teeth whitening as an optional cosmetic treatment for any patients who request it. As part of his practice, he and his staff always seek to educate patients about all the facts involving any procedure, including teeth whitening.
Saltzman Family and Cosmetic Dentistry presents five surprising facts about teeth whitening and making the right decision:
- Color variations: There is a natural variation in tooth color. Race, gender and geographic area during childhood all influence the development of tooth color. When considering a whitening procedure, it’s important to understand that not everyone will be able to achieve the same level of whitening.
- Personal individual treatment: Each patient is fitted with a custom tray that precisely fits the teeth. These snug-fitting trays hold the gel that gradually lightens teeth to the desired color. Over-the-counter whitening products cannot provide the results of personalized treatment.
- Time involved: Whitening teeth requires that the trays be worn daily for several hours; often for a few weeks. Once the right shade is achieved, an occasional additional treatment will keep the teeth bright.
- Age limits: There isn’t an upper age limit for teeth whitening. In fact, because teeth tend to darken with age, older adults will see years of staining disappear through the whitening process.
- Alternative procedures: Tooth whitening isn’t for everyone. Some people need veneers or crowns to bring back their beautiful smiles. Dr. Saltzman can develop a treatment plan suited to each patient’s unique needs.
