If you are interested in brightening your dull, yellow smile, there are many whitening techniques available in the dental field today to finally give you the bright smile you are looking for! It can be a little tricky finding the right whitening system for your smile, but if you meet with your dentist and talk to him or her about your goals, your dentist will be happy to help you with one of the following whitening treatments:

In-Office Whitening: In-office whitening is a beneficial technique that can correct the stains and discoloration in your teeth within just one visit! When you go into the office, the dentist or hygienist will guide you to a comfortable chair, cover your lips and gums, and paint the whitening solution onto the surfaces of your teeth. Then, they will activate the solution with a dental light or tool. When you are finished with your appointment, you will have the bright smile you have always wanted!

Take-Home Whitening: Take-home whitening is a convenient whitening treatment that you can complete within the walls of your own home. If you talk to your dentist about this technique, he or she will create whitening trays that fit perfectly over your teeth, that way you don’t have to deal with the mess associated with over-the-counter trays. Then, your trays will be filled with whitening solution and your dentist will give you the tips you need in order to have a successful whitening experience. Within a couple weeks, you will have the beautiful smile you dream of!

Over-The-Counter Whitening: Over-the-counter whitening is a cheap and accessible way of whitening your smile. You can purchase one of many products at the store, including whitening toothpaste, whitening trays, whitening strips, whitening gel, and whitening mouth rinse. Please feel free to talk to your dentist at your next appointment to find out which of these options is best for you.

To take the first step toward your new-and-improved smile, call our office today and talk to your dentist about teeth whitening!
