Having a dull, yellow smile can impact your self-esteem. In fact, it can even make talking and laughing a little embarrassing. If you’re tired of being embarrassed by your unattractive smile, it’s time to consider teeth whitening treatment! To help you know a little more about the treatment so you can decide if it’s right for you, our dentist, Dr. Carol Halloran, is happy to share some facts and details.

When you first think about teeth whitening, you probably think of the over-the-counter treatments that are advertised at the store and on television. Fortunately, some over-the-counter treatments can indeed whiten your smile. However, if you misuse them or use them too often, there is a chance they can harm your smile. So, if you’re going to use one of these treatments, it’s best to do so with supervision from your dentist. For the bright and brilliant smile you want, it’s best to consider our professional teeth whitening treatment at Crossroads Dental.

The bleach contained in teeth whitening treatment is not harmful to the teeth. More specifically, it does not weaken, soften, or demineralize the tooth enamel. It whitens the teeth by contacting water and releasing hydrogen peroxide, which is the substance that finds and breaks up the tooth discoloration.
