When a cosmetic dentistry procedure becomes popular in the Ladera Ranch and Rancho Santa Margarita areas, it’s natural to want to experience the dramatic results for yourself. However, responsible dental patients should know what the American Dental Association has to say regarding common cosmetic dentistry procedures such as teeth whitening.
The ADA advises patients to communicate with their Ladera Ranch area dentist before starting any bleaching regimen. An oral examination that is in-depth will help your dentist to know if tooth whitening is for you. This is especially important when you have dark stains on your teeth or multiple crowns and/or fillings.
Once you have agreed on a tooth whitening program, your dentist can supervise your use of whichever bleaching agent you have chosen. This will help you to be sure that the frequency of use of your teeth whitener is never too high.
Or, you and your dentist may choose to have your teeth whitened in their Rancho Santa Margarita area office. In-office teeth whitening procedures take much less time than at-home whitening, but it’s vital to find out which procedure is right for you.
Also, if you are shopping for whitening tooth products at your favorite Mission Viejo, Las Sorres, or San Juan Capistrano drugstore, be sure to look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance.
Along with tooth whitening, there are many other cutting-edge cosmetic dentistry procedures your dentist can recommend, which will help you achieve the beautiful smile you want. These include dental implants, gum contouring, veneers, and more!
