A bright and brilliant smile can boost your self-esteem and give you the confidence to talk to your crush, smile for pictures, or even present in that big board meeting coming up. If you have the desire to turn your dull, yellow teeth into bright, shiny chompers, teeth whitening might be the treatment for you! To help you know a little more about the treatment so you can make the best decision for your smile, our dentist, Dr. Nadia Hamouda, is happy to share some information with you.

When it comes to over-the-counter whitening treatments, some successfully whiten the teeth. However, the result might not be exactly what you’re looking for. Some treatments only whiten the teeth one to two shades. Also, some treatments are too abrasive for the teeth and can harm the smile if they are used too often or misused. So, if you are going to start an over-the-counter treatment, it’s best to do so with instructions and supervision from your dentist. For a beautifully improved smile, consider our professional whitening treatment available at White Pearl Dentistry.

If you’re wondering if the bleach contained in teeth whitening treatment is harmful to the teeth, it’s not. More specifically, it does not demineralize, weaken, or soften the outer shell of the teeth. The bleach whitens the smile by contacting water in the teeth and releasing hydrogen peroxide, which is the substance that dissolves the tooth discoloration.
