Your teeth naturally lose luster over time. Dark-colored foods and drinks speed up the process, but even people who avoid coffee, wine and cola are not immune to yellow or gray teeth. Want to brighten up your smile? Teeth whitening at Yuma Family Dentist is one of the quickest and most affordable ways to look younger and more attractive.
Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?
Though some patients experience a little short-term sensitivity, most experience no pain at all.
There are several different methods for whitening teeth but each uses a solution containing peroxide to remove the stains that have accumulated in the microscopic cracks in your tooth enamel.

First of all, the strips, mouthwashes and paint-on whiteners use a lower concentration of whitening agent than in-office methods. They rarely remove all of the stains on your enamel. If you have gum disease, cavities, crowns, dental bonding, or porcelain veneers, Dr. Hulme recommends that you come in for a teeth whitening consultation. You are always better off having teeth whitening performed by a professional. This will protect your existing restorations and ensure the best possible results.
Don’t assume that tooth whitening offered at Yuma mall kiosks is risk-free. The industry is largely unregulated and the staff often have little dental training. Do you really want to take chances with your smile?
