Do you want Whiter Teeth?

My patients has often ask how to get their teeth whiter?

First if you haven't visit a dentist for a while, make an appointment for check up and cleaning. Sometimes having your teeth professionally cleaned by your dentist will make your teeth whiter by couple of shade. By having your teeth cleaned some of the surface stains, like coffee and tea are removed.

Once your teeth are cleaned, the first option for teeth whiting is the over-the-counter home whitening kits that you can get at the local drugstores. It comes with lower concentration of peroxide gel or strips that remain in our teeth for an hour. Most kits works well but will take several weeks to see results. You need to use it everyday and it may not be most comfortable but cost is relatively in-expensive.

If that doesn't work, the next solution is the professional dispensed take home whitening kits that you get from the dentist. The dentist will make a custom trays that will resemble a mouth guard. The whitening gel is than applied on the tray and place on the teeth for an hour or less. Usually you see results after several applications but may take up to a week.

If you have tried over the counter and professional take home tray and looking for immediate results than the In Office Whitening is for you. In less than a hour your teeth will look whiter. The procedure is simple. It begins with short preparation to cover your lips and gums, leaving only your teeth exposed, whitening gel is applied followed by a blue light to activate the whiting gel.

With proper care and occasional touch up at home your smile will sparkle for years.

Ask your dentist what is the right treatment to whiten your smile.
