Cosmetic Dentistry for Too Many Unsuccessful Whitening Attempts

Most people have seen someone, or have experienced too much tooth whitening themselves.


If you follow the Forest Dental Center blog, you will know that chalky and translucent teeth along with sensitivity are just too of the problems that can occur from using too much whitening product.

Because the bleaching agent in most products opens the pores in your enamel, too much could weaken and soften the protective shell on your teeth. Although tooth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedure in the world, it doesn’t work for everyone.

Tooth Whitening Doesn’t Always Work

Unfortunately, some people have no idea how dangerous too much whitening can be. Using over the counter gels, pastes, trays and strips on teeth that are impossible to whiten is damaging.

Your cosmetic dentist in Lynchburg will never talk you into professional tooth whitening on teeth that cannot be whitened. Teeth whitening does work, however, your teeth must be free from restorations and interior staining.

Tooth Whitening Cosmetic Dentistry Alternatives

Most people think cosmetic dentistry is expensive. On the contrary, new technologies, treatments, and products will give you a new smile for less. Less time in the dentist’s chair just makes sense.

Porcelain veneers are a wonderful way to enhance your smile. Your dentist in Lynchburg uses dental porcelain to give you a beautiful smile. Placed on the fronts of your teeth, dental veneers cover a multitude of problems.

People with chipped teeth, spaces between teeth, or teeth that are just too short or too long, find veneers a wonderful alternative. Just be aware that the porcelain veneer procedure is permanent, as your Lynchburg cosmetic dentist will need to remove a portion of the enamel for a natural fit.
