Do you wish you had a white, brilliant smile that you are proud of? Well, dentists today are happy to grant your wish with teeth whitening! Teeth whitening is generally used to help people whiten their smile and boost their self-confidence. If you are interested in enhancing the appearance of your smile, there are three ways to do so, which are:

In-Office Whitening: In-office whitening is a great option if you wish to have a bright smile in a short amount of time. This system generally takes about an hour to complete and it begins with your dentist or hygienist covering your lips and gums to protect them from the whitening gel. Then, they will paint the whitening solution onto the surface of your teeth. When you are ready, they will activate the solution with a special light. You will then wait for the gel to correct the discoloration in your teeth. When the hour passes, you will have the radiant smile you are looking for!

Take-Home Whitening: Take-home whitening is beneficial if you wish to professionally whiten your smile within the walls of your own home. If you are interested in this whitening technique, talk to your dentist during your next appointment. If this is the best option for you, your dentist will create a whitening tray that will fit perfectly over your teeth. Your dentist will then give you the tray, whitening gel, and instructions you need to transform your smile. Within a few weeks, you will have the smile you want!

Over-The-Counter Whitening: Over-the-counter whitening is a good option if you wish to whiten your teeth on your own terms. There are many whitening systems available, including whitening toothpaste, whitening gel, whitening strips, and whitening mouth rinse. If you would like successful results while using these products, talk to your dentist and ask for suggestions about the best whitening product for your smile.

If you are interested in any of these options, please call our office today and schedule an appointment. Our dental team is thrilled to work with you and help you achieve the smile of your dreams!
