Teeth Whitening: True or False?

How much do you really know about teeth whitening? If you have been thinking about whitening your teeth, it is important to have the facts before you decide which product or service to use. Check out these teeth whitening true or false questions to get a better understanding of this area of cosmetic dentistry.


Teeth Whitening True of False Question #1 – OTC Products Work Just as Effectively

False. While the over the counter products might be able to help you with some of the surface stains on your teeth, they aren’t as powerful as the professional tooth whitening systems offered by your dentist, and they will not get your teeth as bright and white.

Teeth Whitening True of False Question #2 – It Takes a Long Time to See Results

False. In most cases, you will see stunning results during the first treatment, which only takes a couple of hours. In addition, you could opt for take home kits that you can use on your teeth instead. This way, you can whiten your teeth while you are relaxing at home, but still have the power of a professional kit.

Teeth Whitening True of False Question #3 – It Can Only Be Used on Natural Teeth

True. You will only be able to use the system as a means to whiten your natural teeth. It will not work to whiten dental implants, crowns, or veneers, for example.

Teeth Whitening True of False Question # 4 – Only Food Causes Stains on the Teeth

False. While there are certainly plenty of different types of staining foods out there, quite a few other things can cause the teeth to stain as well, including beverages such as coffee, smoking, and even some medication. Your cosmetic dentist in Alpharetta can let you know more about the different materials that could be staining your teeth.

    Karen Naide
  • My family and I have been going to Old Milton Dental for 11 years. A few years ago they became out of Network with our insurance carrier and we thought no big deal, we'll just go to a dentist in Network. Well that was the bigest mistake, The level of care at the in Network dentist did not compare. We immediately went back to Old Milton Dental. They are still out of Network but we choose to have good service and an honest reputable dentist.
