Understanding the pros and cons of teeth whitening
Updated: 7/28/2011 5:00:15 PM
 

Understanding the pros and cons of teeth whitening Teeth whitening treatments and products have recently become increasingly en vogue. They are one of the most frequently performed cosmetic dental health services. According to the British Dental Health Foundation, the products, treatments and concepts behind this aspect of dentistry should be carefully reviewed by those debating whether or not to undergo the process.

The least expensive whitening option is to utilize various products available to consumers- specialized toothpaste, liquid mouthwash and so on. However, some of these do not include enough hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide to be significantly effective.

Individuals who can afford professional teeth whitening treatments should understand that it is not a permanent solution unless they are willing to change their eating and oral care habits to sustain results, the organization explained. Typically, the process takes anywhere from three to four weeks. "Power whitening" may require only a single visit, but can be more expensive than other treatments.

The results of many teeth whitening treatments can last as long as three years if performed by a reliable, skilled dental professional.

According to the American Dental Association, consumers shopping for whitening products should choose items with their seal of approval, as they have been tested and examined to ensure that they conform with the organization's standards of quality and reliability.
