Teeth Whitening: Two Common Choices to Brighten Your Smile

So many of us long to have a bright white, sparkling smile that lights up a room, but to achieve that sort of smile may take more than brushing and flossing alone. Although you brush and floss your teeth daily, you may still feel that your smile is lacking that sparkle or is duller than it once was. Fortunately for those who want to achieve a bright white smile there are many cosmetic dental treatments to choose from. When it comes to brightening a smile the two most common treatments are in-office teeth whitening and take-home teeth whitening kits.

Professional in-office teeth whitening is a more preferred method for patients, due to the fact that the patient can leave with a whiter smile within an hour or so after their scheduled appointment. In-office teeth whitening is carefully monitored by the dentist which allows for a safe, controlled and pain free use of a high concentrate bleaching gel. First your dentist will start preparing your mouth by covering your gums and lips so that only your teeth will be exposed. Then your dentist will apply the highly concentrated bleaching gel to your teeth and expose them to a specialized light that activates the gel, which speeds up the bleaching process. This cosmetic dentistry treatment is one of the safest way to go about obtaining your bright white, sparkling smile.

In addition to in-office teeth whitening, your dentist can provide you with custom fitted trays that fit precisely to your teeth and hold the bleaching gel. The custom made trays are created to fit precisely in order to prevent gum irritation and so the bleaching gel is spread out more evenly, which allows the gel to whiten all of your teeth. Using these sort of custom fitted trays are another highly effective way to go about teeth whitening.

Teeth whitening is appropriate for everyone. Be sure to speak with your dentist about using any sort of teeth whitening agents.
