Tooth Whitening: What The ADA Has To Say

Wayne cosmetic smile makeover

When a cosmetic dentistry procedure becomes popular, it’s natural to want to know what the fuss is all about. In this post from David Rice DDS in Elgin we’ll share what the American Dental Association has to say about teeth whitening, one of the procedures we offer.

The ADA advises patients to know the details before starting any bleaching regimen. An oral examination will help us know if teeth whitening is for you. This is especially critical when you have dark stains on your teeth or multiple crowns and/or fillings.

Once you have agreed on a tooth whitening technique, we can supervise your use of whichever bleaching agent you have chosen. This will help you get the best results.

If you are shopping around for over-the-counter whitening products, be sure to look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance.

Along with teeth whitening, David Rice DDS in Elgin offers other cosmetic dentistry procedures. We’ve improved the smiles of people all over Bartlet, South Elgin, and Wayne. Call us to schedule an appointment today!
