Most people see white teeth as an unmistakable sign of health. However, brilliant teeth are not inherently natural to everyone: some people have more yellow teeth, others more grey.
Many people choose teeth whitening to restore the shine to their smile. Several methods exist, from simple whitening toothpaste to professional treatment and whitening kits sold in pharmacies. Of all these methods, professional treatment remains the most effective and safe.
What are the advantages of professional teeth whitening?
The main advantage of professional teeth whitening is how effective it is. Dentists have access to more powerful whitening agents than those available in pharmacies. Whitening performed by a dentist therefore lasts longer and the results are more satisfying.
At Clinique Dentaire 1935, we use Philips Zoom teeth whitening, a simple, effective and safe treatment that has been proven effective time and time again. This whitening technique provides a consistent result, unlike over-the-counter treatments. Since they are not perfectly adapted to your teeth, over-the-counter options can whiten some of your teeth more than others, producing an unsatisfying result.
Professional teeth whitening: a safer treatment
Not only are the results better with professional whitening but it is also a safer treatment than the other options. Some whitening toothpastes have abrasive properties that can damage the enamel of your teeth and we do not recommend using them.
In addition, having the expertise of a dentist during treatment provides you with a host of advantages. The dentist can perform a dental cleaning before the treatment is applied to enhance the results, as well as an oral examination to make sure that the whitening doesn’t exacerbate a problem that you don’t know exists.
Finally, the dentist can make sure that whitening is not contraindicated. Pregnant or breastfeeding women, people who wear braces, suffer from various diseases or are under 16 years of age should be treated with care. If you have dental restorations, certain conditions may also apply and the dentist is qualified to address them.
Professional teeth whitening: what results should you expect?
As with any treatment of pigments in the human body, the exact results of teeth whitening are difficult to predict. The results will be breathtaking on some, more subtle on others: it all depends on the natural colouring of your teeth and the nature of the stains.
This is why we use Philips Zoom treatment. Its effectiveness guarantees a noticeable improvement, regardless of how white your teeth are today. The treatment can make teeth up to 8 shades lighter, which is a remarkable difference.
