Quiz: Understanding Your Options For Teeth Whitening

If you want to see your smile become brighter, you may have already started exploring your teeth whitening options. If you have been focusing on over the counter products, you may find yourself limited to whitening procedures that only remove stains from the surface of your teeth. With a professional cosmetic dental treatment, you can see more impressive changes made. With the right procedure, you can provide your smile with a stunning improvement. Your dentist can even help you address intrinsic discoloration, which refers to internal tooth problems that can still persist after a professional whitening treatment.

Questions:

True Or False: A professional teeth whitening treatment can help you deal with both extrinsic and intrinsic discoloration.

True Or False: Having porcelain veneers placed on teeth can improve the color of your smile.

True Or False: Store bought products are often only effective at removing surface stains from your enamel. For a more dramatic improvement, a professional whitening treatment may be needed.

Answers:

False! Professional teeth whitening treatments can eliminate stains in your enamel, and whiten your teeth to a significant degree. However, this procedure is intended for extrinsic stains. While these types of stains affect many patients, some will need help with intrinsic discoloration, which can call for another approach.

True! Porcelain veneers can make your smile appear whiter. In fact, veneers can be used to help patients address intrinsic discoloration. This is in addition to their capacity to cover up a range of other flaws with the shape or condition of teeth.

True! Store bought products, and toothpastes that promise whitening benefits, can lack the ability to reach stains that are settled into your enamel.
