For most folks, the answer to the first one is yes, you can do it. Then very often, the answer to does it do any damage is no, it does not, if you do it properly and with a little bit of supervision sometimes.

Hi. I’m Dr. Jason Mounts. Very often, I have patients coming in asking about whitening their teeth. They usually have a couple of questions. One is, “Can I do it?” Then, “How well will it work?” But also, “Does it do any damage?”
The main thing with that is you want to make sure that you have healthy teeth. You don’t want to be doing whitening treatments or bleaching treatments on teeth that have a lot of cavities in them. That could definitely cause some problems. We don’t want to do that.
Then the other part of that is that people would like to know how they can do it. There are several different treatment options for that. Obviously, there are some over the over-the-counter products. Patients get different results with that. Some work fairly well, and others just don’t do much at all. But there are definitely some options for over-the-counter products.
The other option is to come into your dental practice and let the dentist or the hygienist take care of it for you. We have two really good systems that we use here in our office. It just kind of depends on what you’re looking for and how you want to do it. One option is to do a take home system. It’s really nice. It’s very easy. You do it at home by yourself, and the cost is down a little bit on that one as well. That’s a nice way to do it. The downside to it is, is that it’s kind of your responsibility to do it. If you don’t do it as frequently as you’d like, the results don’t seem to be quite as good as they could have been otherwise.
Then the other option is to just come in and let us treat it here in the office. We do Zoom Whitening here. The nice thing about the Zoom Whitening is, is you come in one time for about an hour and a half appointment and we can get your teeth significantly whiter in a very short amount of time. It’s a really nice way to do it.
We’re actually running a promotion there for that now. We’ve got a nice discounted price on that. If it’s something you think you’d be interested in doing or you want some more information about, just give us a call. Our number is 501-753-0166. We’d love to help you out with that.
