Tooth whitening has become one of the most popular dental procedures in Texas.

It seems that everyone in Arlington is whitening their teeth to help their smiles look younger and brighter. Many consumers are turning to over-the-counter solutions to whiten their teeth, however their can be dangers and pitfalls to this approach.

Here is some basic advice on teeth whitening from Dr. Stephen Ratcliff:

First, we encourage you to visit our office in Arlington before starting a tooth whitening system. It is a good idea to have your teeth checked and analyzed before starting a tooth whitening program. Tooth whitening is not for everyone, and depends on your dental history.

Cosmetic dentist Dr. Stephen Ratcliff can help you determine whether your teeth can be whitened safely and effectively. We can also recommend tooth whitening solutions that will work best for you. Stephen Ratcliff, Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is a good place to start for this important decision.  We offer professional in-office Zoom teeth whitening.

There are many pitfalls to be aware of when whitening your teeth. Over-the-counter teeth whitening products available in the Arlington area will provide varying degrees of effectiveness on your teeth. If used improperly,tooth whitening solutions can cause problems including tooth sensitivity, over whitening, damage to your tooth enamel, and irregular coloration. Whitening too much can even have a reverse effect, making your teeth look gray.

Most tooth whitening product manufacturers recommend that you visit your local Arlington dentist when things go wrong with your over-the-counter tooth whitening solution. We recommend you begin with the one that builds trust professionals at Stephen Ratcliff, Family and Cosmetic Dentistry to get started with a whitening solution that will give you the best tooth whitening results.
