Like any dental procedure, simple or complex, professional tooth whitening requires some preparation. There are a few things that need to be considered such as costs, and the type of whitening that will be suitable for you. There are two types of teeth whitening – one is performed by the dentist and the other at home.
Your dentist will first check to see whether the treatment is suitable for you. If not, the dentist may recommend other treatments to help you achieve the beautiful white smile you’ve always wanted. Generally, good candidates for teeth whitening must have reasonably healthy teeth and good oral health. For veneers and dental crowns, the procedure will also not work on them.
