Teeth whitening procedure is painless, as long as an experienced cosmetic dentist performs it. It’s one of Dr. Anthony Mobasser’s areas of expertise. His dental office offers pain-free teeth whitening services in Los Angeles. For more than ten years, his office caters to thousands of satisfied patients. Dr. Mobasser ensures you’ll have the most comfortable experience when you undergo this procedure at his office. Unfortunately, some of his patients chose to purchase an OTC teeth whitening over his teeth whitening service.
The reason for this is that they’re afraid of the pain and the cost of the procedure. But it turned out those OTC teeth whitening products caused them pain and teeth sensitivity. As a result, they went back to Dr. Mobasser’s office to get rid of the pain and whiten their teeth, thereby, doubling the cost.
Why you must think twice of using DIY teeth whitening?
DIY teeth whitening may be effective to some. However, it can cause harm to your teeth. Lemon juice and baking soda, for example, are two popular remedies that can be a bad idea for the enamel. Baking soda is beneficial to your teeth, but lemon juice is acidic enough that it can erode your enamel. Never use hydrogen peroxide with baking soda as it causes gum irritation. If you have existing tooth condition, the mixture can worsen it.
It’s true that the teeth whitening treatments that Dr. Mobasser offers contains hydrogen peroxide, the amount won’t cause any harm because it is at the safe level. Furthermore, Dr. Mobasser will supervise the treatment so he can monitor your progress.
How about the use of mouth guard?
Mouth guard is a commonly used tool to whiten teeth. However, if you don’t know how to use it, then it can cause more harm than good. The reason for this is that most mouth guards don’t fit well in your mouth causing gum recession. Keep in mind that teeth whitening products contain hydrogen peroxide, which can irritate when it reaches the tooth. It’ll result in chemical burns. Dr. Mobasser may use a mouth guard during a teeth whitening procedure. However, the mouth guard you use will fit into your mouth correctly so you can avoid gum injuries.
That’s why he strongly recommends not to undergo teeth whitening without a dentist’s supervision. Because of those dangers, you must be wary of purchasing a teeth whitening kit. Remember that some of those kits have banned chemicals that might cause fatal conditions. Never settle for cheap treatments.
