A Simple Approach to Teeth Whitening

Posted .

Are you interested in receiving cosmetic dentistry to reduce the appearance of lingering tooth stains or discoloration? If so, have you thought about receiving teeth whitening? This treatment can brighten the look of your tooth enamel and make staining less visible, but there are several varieties of teeth whitening to choose from, including at-home whitening, over-the-counter products and professional dental services.

We invite you to learn more about your teeth whitening options, from commercial products to professional whitening, so that you can be well informed.

Traditionally, the types of teeth whitening use a peroxide to bleach away deep stains or a semi-potent chemical product that can reduce surface staining. To determine which method of whitening would be preferable for your teeth, we encourage you to consult our dentists, Drs. Paul Szmanda, Jim Soblewski, Yvonne Schulke and Thomas Nichols.

Keep in mind that online products and kits sold in stores may not be the safest and can cause you to experience negative outcomes such as tooth sensitivity, gum irritation and bleached gums, especially if you don’t follow the correct use for the treatment. By speaking with a dental professional in advance, you can learn if a commercial product is safe for you and can provide the desired results for your smile.

To further discuss your options for teeth whitening in Wausau, Wisconsin, we invite you to contact Szmanda Dental at 715-845-3200 today and schedule a consultation.
