More questions about tooth whitening
Tooth whitening is an excellent option when you want to improve the look of discolored and stained teeth. Here are some questions about tooth whitening.

Question: Do I have to bleach all my teeth?

Answer: No. It's possible for you to have one or a select number of teeth bleached to match the surrounding teeth. However, this should only be done professionally.

Question: I had a root canal and now the tooth looks dark. Can bleaching help?

Answer. When a tooth has been darkened because of root canal therapy, a bleaching agent can be applied to the inside of the tooth. This is known as non-vital whitening.

Question: What are the advantages of an in – office bleaching?

Answer. For uniform results, in-office bleaching is best. Before starting a whitening program, your cosmetic dentist will determine the health of your teeth and mouth. He or she will remove any surface stains and deposits.
Professional in-office whitening is also more convenient. This is because the bleaching agents are stronger than those in over-the-counter products. Your teeth will get much whiter in 60 to 90 minutes.

Question: How effective are over-the-counter products?

Answer. Peroxide-based over-the-counter products can be effective at whitening your teeth. The ingredients in home kits aren't very concentrated, however. This means it may take several weeks to get good results.
Some over-the-counter whitening kits contain mouthpieces that won't fit properly around your teeth. As a result, some parts of the teeth may be covered by the bleaching agent, while some parts may not. This results in uneven covering and bleaching. The bleaching ingredient also may leak out from the mouthpiece. This can irritate the gums and other soft tissues from your mouth.
If you decide to use an over-the-counter product, consult with your dentist first.
