If you want celebrity smile, u will definitely need teeth whitening. Because Scaling and polishing will only clear the stains of the teeth and will not change the color or tint of teeth. So if one wants teeth whiter or rather lighter in shade then existing bleaching is a treatment of choice. None of the treatment will make teeth weak or damage it in any sense

Tooth Whitening and Polishing are two different procedures. Scaling and polishing is needed to remove the calculus and plaque and must be done once in 6 months and doors not change the color of the teeth Tooth whitening however is a chemical procedure to whiten the teeth and change the shade. There are different ways to do this Can be HOME TOOTH WHITENING, CHAIRSIDE TOOTH WHITENING AND ZOOM TOOTH WHITENING if done correctly can be a superb option for a super looking smile! All of the above are completely safe and you can have a great looking smile!

Get ur scaling and polishing done. Scaling does not make ur teeth weak rather they make them healthy. After scaling if u still want ur teeth to look more whiter then go for office bleaching. Consult ur specialist.
