Tooth Whitening and Your Dentist

Categories: Teeth Whitening

Tooth whitening has become one of the most popular dental procedures in Alabama. It seems that everyone in Birmingham is whitening their teeth to help their smiles look younger and brighter. Many consumers in the Birmingham area are turning to over-the-counter solutions to whiten their teeth, however there can be dangers and pitfalls to this approach.

Here is some basic advice on tooth whitening from Koch Aesthetic Dentistry:

First, we encourage you to visit our cosmetic dentistry office in Birmingham 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.

Dr. Koch at Koch Aesthetic Dentistry 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. Koch Aesthetic Dentistry is a good place to start for this important decision.

There are many pitfalls to be aware of when whitening your teeth. Over-the-counter teeth whitening products available in the Birmingham 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 Birmingham dentist when things go wrong with your over-the-counter tooth whitening solution. You might decide to take advantage of our professional in-office Zoom whitening procedure.  You can have white teeth in one hour!  We are passionate about your smile, your comfort and your professional care at Koch Aesthetic Dentistry.

Our office is located at 2311 Highland Avenue South, Suite 323, Birmingham, Alabama 35205. Please give us a call or stop by to make an appointment to discuss your tooth whitening plans. We are eager to help you make the best decision about your tooth whitening.

Our staff is available to discuss tooth whitening solutions, explain tooth whitening options, and check your teeth to make sure you will get the tooth whitening results you want.

I look forward to seeing your beautiful bright smile.
