It’s natural for our teeth to discolor and brightness to fade over the years. However, you may not be aware of the impact this has on your confidence. If you’re not satisfied with the appearance of your smile, you may hide it, even if you don’t realize you’re doing it. This can cause people to make unfair assumptions that you’re unfriendly or unapproachable, which could be impacting your life. Teeth whitening is a quick way to give your smile the upgrade it needs to restore your confidence and change your life!
Why Choose Professional Whitening?
With so many over-the-counter (OTC) whitening products available at your local grocery store, wouldn’t that be the quickest way to brighten your smile? While OTC products offer immediate results, they may not always be the best results.
Here are some facts to consider about professionally whitening your teeth with your dentist:
- Your dentist has access to much stronger whitening gel designed to deliver results faster and more effectively than products found at the store.
- Your dentist can customize your whitening treatment making it safe for your teeth and soft tissues.
- Your dentist can provide advice if you should encounter any issues during your whitening treatment such as sensitive teeth.
What Are My Options for Professional Teeth Whitening?
Whether you need fast results for an upcoming event, or you’d prefer the comfort of whitening your teeth at home, your dentist has you covered.
In-office whitening treatment produces immediate results, and you will leave your dentist with teeth that are six to ten shades lighter than when you came in. Your dentist uses a protective barrier for your gums and applies a high strength gel activated with a special light for optimum results. You also finish with a fluoride treatment to reduce sensitivity.
Take-home whitening systems include customized whitening trays made for your teeth with impressions taken by your dentist. An accurate fit protects your gums from excess whitening gel escaping and delivers better results than one-size-fits-all products found at the store.
