Dental help. Mad over my husband wanting to whiten his teeth.

Posted on Sunday, May. 16th 2010 8:38 PM by Dental Plan Review in Dental Help, Dentists, Whitening 4 Comments »

Right now I am so upset I can spit.  My husband went to the dentist for his six months appointment today.  When he was at the dentist the dentist assistant started telling my husband that he really should whiten his teeth.  His teeth are strong and he has no cavities but they are really stained up.  So she started talking it up saying how much better his teeth would look and how much better he would look and so on.  Now my husband wants to whiten his teeth.

It is not that I do not want my husband to have nice teeth but here are the facts.

Fact 1:  My husband is a chain smoker.  His teeth are stained because he is a smoker.   Even though I tried to get him to stop many times over he will not.

Fact 2: Our dental insurance does not cover for whitening  treatment.  So it would cost us out of pocket $189.00

Fact3: I have no problem him getting is teeth whiten if he were to stop smoking so that they just don’t get re-stained.  Other wise I feel we are thowing our money out the door.

Because of this dental assistant shooting off her mouth my husband wants to go head with the whiting treatment regardless of the fact that we do not have alot of extra money let alone money to waste.  His normal dentist would never had done this.  I want to know why a dental assistant would talk about teeth whitening program to a know heavy smoker.  (There is no way she could not know that he smokes)

I am really upset because I feel she was out of line and trying to make a buck regardless of the fact that until my husband stops smoking whiten his teeth is pointless.   I will do what my husband wants even if he wants to toss money away.  I do not like what this dental assistant did and was wondering if there was any point in lodging a complaint.

    At least I would talk to his normal dentist and let them know you are upset with what the dental assistant did. I would not let it go without them knowing you feel she was out of line.

    With that said try having your husband talk it over with his normal dentist. You are right that unless you husband plans on quitting smoking his teeth will get stained again.

    Maybe this is your chance. Tell you husband you think it is a great idea that he has his teeth whiten, but only if he is planing on quitting smoking. Otherwise there is no point of whiting his teeth by the dentist but if he really still wants to whiten his teeth he can buy an over the counter whiting treatment that would cost you much less then having a dentist do it.

    I guess I can see your point but really what can you do. He is your husband and like you stated you are going to let him have the whitening treatments any way.

    You can just do what my wife does remember this so that when you want something you can throw it in his face how he wasted money on having his teeth whiten.

    Well I think you are going to need to let this one go. What the point in upsetting yourself. You can complain but will that get you anywhere? Unless your husband sees your point what can you do about it?
