While everyone seems to be getting into the DIY craze one thing that should never be done at home is cosmetic dentistry.
Treatments such as dental bonding, professional teeth whitening and even DIY dental crowns are popping up all over the internet. However, that doesn’t mean they are reliable or even safe.
Cosmetic Dentistry Takes Training
Your cosmetic dentist in Stillwater explains that these types of dental treatments take years of training over and above general dentistry. That makes DIY downright dangerous.
According to Dr. Sara Cody, any cosmetic dentistry procedure must be monitored by a doctor. If it isn’t, permanent damage could occur, especially with DIY removable braces.
When it comes to anything orthodontic a dentist must always be involved because of jaw movement.
Cosmetic Dentistry and Teeth Bleaching
Although professional teeth whitening is something you can purchase over the counter, the products available on the internet are much stronger.
They are much stronger because there is no regulation. What that means is you are getting a prescription strength whitening agent that should never be used without being observed by a dentist.
Because those DIY kits online come with a one size fits all whitening tray and prescription gel you can easily burn your gums and damage your teeth.
Be Smart See a Professional
As you can see the best way to give your teeth a boost is with professional cosmetic dentistry care in Stillwater and the best way to start is with a thorough examination with Lift Dental.
During your dental consultation Dr. Cody and her team will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums in addition to your chewing system.
The chewing system is extremely important. It’s important because if your bite or temporomandibular joints are out of alignment your restorations will not last as long as they should.
Because a bad bite or TMJ cause uneven tooth wear your dental restorations will pay the price as well.
