Tooth Whitening: What The ADA Has To Say

Chester cosmetic smile makeover

When a cosmetic dentistry procedure becomes popular, more and more people get curious and want to try it for themselves. We’ve noticed this with teeth whitening at Vanguard Dental Group in Derry NH.

Professional teeth whitening is safe and very effective. Some of our patient, however, wonder what the dental profession as a group has to say about it. We thought we would use this space to share the American Dental Association point of view.

The ADA advises patients to talk to with a dentist before starting any whitening regimen. An oral examination will help us know if teeth whitening is for you. This is especially important when you have dark stains on your teeth or multiple crowns and/or fillings.

We offer the Venus whitening system. The in-office version can whiten your teeth dramatically, in as little as one hour. Imagine that: walking into the office with teeth dulled and yellow, and leaving with a gleaming white smile.

There is also a home version of the Venus whitening system. Some of our patients prefer to use that, and proceed at their own pace and convenience. The results as just as startling.

There are a lot of whitening products available at any grocery store. If you decide to go that route, we advise to make sure whatever product you settle on carries the ADA Seal of Acceptance.

Professional teeth whitening is just one of the cosmetic dentistry procedures available at Vanguard Dental Group in Derry NH. Call our office to schedule an appointment today.
