It is also a good idea to ask your friends and family for recommendations on how you should pick your Richmond Dentist. They will be able to discuss their treatment with you and give you an indication of the doctor’s personality and approach. If you find a dentist that you think you might like, you should ask your friends if they have heard of him or her. They may have some information that you would want to know. It is also totally expected for you to research your dentist and he will not be put off or caught off guard if you bring up his qualifications. In many cases, you may find common ground and you may be able to start building a rapport from that.

Don’t worry if you cannot seem to find the right dentist for you straightaway. It can take a little bit of time to get it right and to find someone that you really click with. Make sure that you are ready for a long but fulfilling process from the start.

4 Teeth Whitening Don’ts Before rushing out and buying a teeth whitening product, there are 4 major no-no’s you need to be aware of. 1. Don’t Use on Artificial Surfaces One of the things most people don’t know about teeth whitening products is that they don’t work on artificial tooth surfaces. So if you have had veneers, implants, crown or fillings, then be aware that these parts of your dental structure will not respond to teeth whitening products. What will happen instead is that they will remain the same color while your natural teeth will be whitened, resulting in a dental patchwork of different shades. To avoid this fashion faux-pas, it is best to first consult a dentist on the best way to whiten your teeth. 2. Don’t use on Badly Discolored Teeth Teeth whitening products are not the magic solution to treating badly discolored teeth. If you have very bad dark teeth stains, such as those caused by excessive cigarette smoking or fluoride water, the normal home kits will give you below average results and will just be a waste of time and money. For seriously discolored teeth, it is best to consult your dentist who can use professional strength teeth whiteners that will give you better results and more value for your money. 3. Don’t use during Pregnancy If you are expecting a baby, then you should definitely keep off all teeth whitening products as the smallest ingestion of teeth whitening ingredients can harm the development of the fetus. The best thing to do is to put of any teeth whitening plan until after your delivery. 4. Don’t use if you have Inflamed Gums If you suffer from inflamed gums or other dental problems, you should stay clear of teeth whitening products until you get your dental problem sorted out. Whitening products will only aggravate your condition and cause painful tooth sensitivity that will make eating or drinking very difficult.
