If you have ever used a drugstore teeth whitening treatment, and failed to get the results you expected, then you may have asked yourself, “Am I a candidate for teeth whitening treatments from my dentist?”

You may have considered professional teeth whitening and then rejected it as being too expensive, but just think of all the money you have thrown away on treatments that failed to work. Professional teeth whitening from your dentist can give you whitening beyond your wildest dreams – up to eight shades – and it will last for years. If that sounds like what you want, then you are a candidate for teeth whitening from your dentist.

Maybe I am Not a Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

If those drug store strips are giving you the results you want, then you probably have never smoked, never consumed tea, coffee, red wine or dark fruit juices, and you have never eaten chocolate. Chances are that you are not a candidate for teeth whitening at all. If you do indulge in guilty pleasures, though, and you want genuine, significant, long-lasting results, though, you can get them from Martin Dentistry, and you probably will not spend much more on a single treatment than you have been throwing away on drugstore strips all these years.

Can Anyone Be a Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Sometimes, a person could be a bad candidate for teeth whitening, but this is quite rare. If you have very sensitive teeth, you might find whitening treatments uncomfortable. Of course there are whitening procedures that are specifically geared toward people who have sensitive teeth, but the reality is that you are the only person who knows how much discomfort you are able to tolerate.

You might also be a bad candidate for teeth whitening if your tooth enamel has become worn. When people with thin enamel have teeth whitening treatments, the problem can actually be exacerbated – the discoloration becomes even more pronounced.

Gum disease and tooth decay will also make you a bad candidate for teeth whitening. Fortunately, these are treatable conditions, so once your dental health is back where it should be, you can proceed with teeth whitening.
