Teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic dental treatments people seek. Whether you opt for in-office whitening, or at-home bleaching, it’s as clear as the enamel on your pearly whites that a brighter smile can take years off of your appearance, and provide you with more confidence in your smile.
Smiles are often taken for granted, but their importance is paramount to a high quality of life. Studies have been done all over the world focusing on the importance of smiling. Better relationships, higher pay, better promotions in the work force, and endorphin rushes are all attributed to nice, comfortable, bright, white, confident smiles. If you feel like your grin has become dull and yellow, you may want to consider a simple teeth whitening procedure to brighten your smile and your spirits.
In-Office Teeth Whitening: Leave it to Your Dentist
In-office teeth whitening general requires one to three sessions that last about 30 minutes. The expedient process can make your teeth as many as six shades brighter. Results may vary, depending on the initial color and state of the patient’s teeth. Dental grade bleaching gel is applied by your dentist, and you can simply lean back, relax, and listen to some tunes on your smartphone.
At Home Teeth Whitening: Flexibility and Control
Some patients prefer to be in control of the whitening procedure at home, so they try their luck with one of the many over-the-counter whitening products you can purchase at a local corner drugstore. Unfortunately, most of these kits won’t yield the sort of noticeable results you are hoping for. If you want to have a true teeth whitening experience in the comfort of your home, when and where you want it, many dentists offer professional-grade whitening gels to be administered with the use of customized trays, that are yours for life. The results are likely to be far more dramatic than anything you can buy at the store, but you’ll still be able to have freedom and flexibility with your daily treatments. When your teeth begin to dull again over time, you can use the same trays and simply order more bleaching gel from your dentist.
