Can Teeth Whitening Damage Teeth?

Dr Rammo comparing shades of teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is a popular type of cosmetic dental work. You want your teeth to be bright and attractive, but you may have some questions or concerns. When you have some answers, you’ll be ready to take this step.

There are usually no disadvantages to teeth whitening, but there are many benefits. Think of how happy you’ll feel when you know you look your best. You’ll look healthier and more youthful, too.

However, there are differences in approaches to teeth whitening, and reasons to consult with Dr Rammo when you want your teeth whitened. At justSMILE, we offer two options. We can provide a professional teeth whitening service in our office, or a teeth whitening kit for you to use at home.

Our in-office option is the ZOOM! Teeth Whitening method. Dr Rammo will do the procedure. If you prefer to whiten your teeth at home, we’ll provide a kit with custom made whitening trays. Whichever option you choose, you’ll love the results!

There are two main reasons you should choose one of these options instead of over the counter products. First, you want effective results that last. Whitening strips and whitening toothpastes are not nearly as effective as our professional products. If you do achieve results, they’ll not last as long.

In contrast, the results from professional whitening can last for years. With basic care, your teeth will stay bright and white.

Sensitivity is another reason to avoid over the counter products. Many products contain harsh ingredients that can irritate your gums. Your teeth can become sensitive, so exposure to hot and cold foods and beverages, and even cold weather, can be painful.

You’ll not have these problems with professional whitening. You may experience mild discomfort after bleaching, but this symptom will soon disappear. You’ll be able to eat and drink your favourite foods and beverages without experiencing pain.

Whether you have dull, discoloured teeth because of a poor diet, improper dental hygiene, smoking, or natural aging, teeth whitening can greatly improve your appearance. You can have self-confidence and pride every time you smile. Beautiful white teeth start with a visit to our office.

Our friendly staff is waiting to meet you, and help you feel welcome and comfortable. You can discuss in-office whitening and whitening kits with Dr Rammo. Regardless of the option you choose, you’ll be on your way to an attractive smile. Whether you live in Bondi, Ramsgate Beach NSW, or one of the many nearby suburbs, you can contact us for an appointment. Everyone at justSMILE wants you to have the smile of your dreams.
