ONE SUREFIRE WAY TO PERK UP YOUR SMILE IS TO WHITEN YOUR TEETH.
Depending on the amount of dental work you’ve had, your mouth’s sensitivity and the color of your teeth, your dentist can suggest appropriate whitening methods:
- Whitening toothpaste: Including mild abrasives and other agents, these can remove minor surface stains.
- Professional In-Office Whitening: Usually done in one visit, the dentist applies a whitening agent to the teeth while shielding the gums to reduce possible irritation. Natural teeth can be immediately whitened
- Home Whitening: The staff will take molds of your mouth to make you custom-made trays that you fill with a peroxide-based whitening gel to be applied to teeth over several days up to a couple of weeks. This method is dentist-prescribed but can be lower cost than in-office treatments. Alternatively, you can choose to purchase sets of single-use disposable trays to wear, at a lower cost. Both can provide excellent whitening results at home at your convenience!
