You want it. Your neighbor wants it. Everyone wants it! However, is teeth whitening safe?

Whiter teeth are a must in today’s world, and with safer, more efficient methods available, more people are taking advantage of this service. Whether you need whiter teeth for those holiday greeting cards or to showcase a more confident smile, teeth whitening can be affordable, safe, and effective.

Teeth Whitening Is Safe — If Done Right

You’ve heard what warnings say: “teeth-whitening treatments can damage oral health.” The fact of the matter is that they are right. Teeth whitening can damage teeth – that is, if not done in the right way. Rather than purchasing over-the-counter, teeth whitening kits and risking your oral health through inexperience, find a teeth whitening Calgary dentist you can trust.

Finding a trustworthy dentist means discovering one who knows how to protect your oral health. This includes being able to protect your gums from gingival irritation.  In all cases of teeth whitening, dentist-guided teeth whitening is considered the safest way to whiten your teeth.
