Some more Frequently asked questions:
Is teeth whitening safe? Does it have any side effects? Does it work for everyone or is it recommended for everyone?
Teeth whitening is generally a safe procedure with occasional sensitivity of teeth as the only side effect. Such sensitivity of teeth may last for 2-3 days and can be easily taken care with medicated toothpastes or gels and a mild over the counter painkiller.
It best works on healthy teeth which have yellow discolouration and are cavity free. Regular teeth whitening procedures are not very effective on grey or brown discolouration of teeth, which are mostly intrinsic in nature. They also don’t work on artificial teeth and fillings.
Teeth Whitening is not advisable for all individuals. It is not done for children. It is avoided during pregnancy and lactation and is not recommended for people with sensitive teeth.
How long does the effect of teeth whitening last? Can teeth whitening be permanent?
The effect of teeth whitening at Smilekraft Dentistry in Pune lasts for an average of at least 2 years. It may be more or less based on your diet and maintenance after the whitening procedure. Such procedures are not permanent and have to be performed periodically, though the time required to achieve good results keeps improving.
