Professional Teeth Whitening
One of the easiest and most efficient ways to make your teeth younger and brighter is to opt to have them professionally whitened. Plus, it’s extremely safe. The specialized gels help to gently oxidize and lift away stain particles that are tucked within the microscopic pores along the surfaces of your teeth.
You can expect to see results from removing stains caused by:
- Tobacco products
- Teas, soda, coffee, and red wine
- Tomato, curry, and other dark sauces
- Environmental factors
- Medication use
Isn’t a Store Bought Kit Cheaper?
Well, that depends. Most store bought whitening kits seem relatively cheap at first. However, the solutions are much weaker and can take two to three systems to reach results that are similar to something available from your dentist. Even then, that’s not always possible. By the time you’ve bought a refill, you could have had your teeth professionally whitened and be enjoying drastically whiter teeth.
Types of Professional Teeth Whitening Treatments
Depending on what your goals and whitening needs are, most dentists offer two types of treatments for you to choose from: in-office whitening and take-home kits.
In-House Whitening: Get white teeth in just one, hour-long appointment. You’ll see immediate results just in time for that important weekend event.
Professional Take Home Kits: Custom fitted trays provide optimal coverage for prescription strength whitening to do its job. Wear your trays for an hour a day, up to two weeks.
Investing in a Beautiful You
You’ll be surprised to see how much of a difference whiter teeth can make on your confidence and personality. Feeling proud about the way your teeth look can totally transform your social and professional life. Ask your dentist how whitening can work with options like veneers or other cosmetic options as part of your smile makeover!
