Can I benefit from teeth whitening if I have periodontitis?
Tooth whitening is generally not recommended if you have initial periodontitis. You need to treat it first, then consider whitening (ask your dentist or hygienist first!). Periodontitis is a gum disease that affects the supporting tissues of the teeth, including bone and ligaments. In such cases, it’s essential to treat periodontitis first by consulting your dental hygienist, who can refer you, if necessary, to a periodontal specialist, also known as a periodontologist.
Before considering tooth whitening, it’s essential to ensure that your oral health is optimal. If you suffer from periodontitis, it’s crucial to follow the treatments recommended by your hygienist/periodontologist to stabilize gum disease. Once periodontitis is under control and your gums are healthy, you can discuss the possibility of teeth whitening.
In summary, if you have periodontitis, first consult your hygienist or a periodontologist to evaluate and treat this condition. Once your oral health is optimal, you can consider tooth whitening.
Can orthodontic braces be used to whiten teeth?
Tooth whitening while wearing orthodontic braces is highly inadvisable. Orthodontic braces, often simply called braces, are used to correct various dental problems such as tooth alignment, gaps between teeth and bite problems.
Tooth whitening involves the use of special products such as bleaching gels or peroxides that act on the color of tooth enamel. However, when wearing braces, the teeth under and around the braces will not be evenly exposed to the whitening agents.
It’s best to wait until orthodontic treatment is complete before considering tooth whitening. Once the braces are removed and your orthodontic treatment is complete, your hygienist or dentist will be able to assess the color of your teeth and advise you on the whitening options best suited to your situation.
Remember to follow your orthodontist’s and dental hygienist’s instructions during treatment with orthodontic braces to ensure that your teeth and gums remain healthy.
Can I have my teeth whitened after removing orthodontic braces?
Yes, absolutely! Once your braces have been removed and your orthodontic treatment is complete, you can consider teeth whitening to restore your radiant smile. Sometimes, however, you’ll need to have them re-mineralized before and after whitening. Orthodontic braces are often removed at the end of treatment to correct tooth alignment and improve bite.
Tooth whitening after band removal is an excellent option for improving the color of your teeth. Bands can leave visible traces on the enamel, creating a difference in shade between the areas covered by the bands and other areas of the teeth. A whitening treatment can even out the color of your teeth and give you a brighter smile.
