While teeth whitening is the premier cosmetic dental treatment in the U.S. and considered to be extremely safe, a small number of people are not suitable for whitening treatment. This is either due to medical reasons or because whitening is highly unlikely to be able to create the result desired by the patient.
Who are the best candidates for teeth whitening?
The best candidates for teeth whitening are those individuals who have healthy teeth and gums, zero or minimal fillings, and light to medium staining. Yellow-toned stains are easier to remove and give an overall better result.
