From Insurance to Restorations -Your Teeth Whitening Questions Answered

dca-blog_teeth-whitening-two-women-pointing

Years of coffee, tea, wine and other indulgences may result in unsightly yellow teeth. Fortunately, bleaching agents can remove many of the accumulated stains, and restore your healthy smile. Many types of over-the-counter and professional teeth whitening systems are available for your use, including whitening toothpastes and rinses, peroxide-based gels or strips, bleaching tray systems, and in-office treatments that produce more dramatic results. Before you choose one, it’s best to learn the basics about teeth whitening.

The following common questions and answers may be helpful:

Will Teeth Whitening Damage My Tooth Enamel?

Studies of whitening products using 10 percent carbamide peroxide demonstrated no effect on the mineral content or hardness of tooth enamel. For information about stronger in-office bleaching agents, consult your dentist in Towson.

Can My Tooth Nerves Be Damages by Teeth Whitening Products?

There is no evidence to date that suggests that teeth whitening procedures damage a tooth’s nerve in any way.

Will Teeth Whitening Damage My Crowns or Other Dental Restorations?

Teeth whitening products do not damage existing fillings; however, treatments cannot lighten restoration materials, so crowns, veneers, bondings, and bridges will retain their existing color while natural teeth will lighten. If you have your teeth whitened, you may need to have preexisting dental work replaced so that it matches your new tooth shade; this is especially true if any of your highly visible front teeth have been restored.

How Do I Choose the Best Teeth Whitening Method for My Teeth?

Your dentist is the most qualified to determine the best teeth whitening method for you. Call your dentist today, so you can start working together to create a brighter smile.

Will My Dental Insurance Cover Teeth Whitening Procedures?

Whitening teeth is considered a cosmetic procedure, so dental insurance does not cover the cost. You may be able to afford the treatments by qualifying for third-party financing through companies like CareCredit and making monthly payments.
