As we age, our smiles start to dim. Even with a daily brushing and flossing routine, stains begin to build up and tarnish your teeth’s appearance.
But thanks to modern cosmetic dentistry and a variety of teeth whitening options, you can achieve a dazzling, long-lasting smile.
With all the teeth whitening methods out there, it can be tough to determine which one is right for your smile.
Dentist Approved Teeth Whitening Options:
1. In Office
Professional Zoom!® Whitening is one of the most effective methods for achieving a brighter smile. The safe, painless in-office whitening system removes discoloration to create a whiter smile in just one hour.
With a proper dental care routine, plus an annual touch-up at home, your teeth can remain bright and beautiful for years to come.
2. At Home
For a convenient smile treatment, you may consider whitening your teeth from the comfort of your home, using:
- Whitening toothpaste
- Over-the-counter trays
- Take-home whitening trays
With at-home options, following the instructions is key to achieving a bright smile and maintaining healthy teeth. With improper use, potential damage to your smile can occur:
- Overuse of whitening toothpaste can cause tooth sensitivity.
- Most over-the-counter trays are designed to be a one size fits all solution. If your whitening tray doesn’t fit correctly, the gel can leak and cause gum irritation.
To avoid sensitivity and gum irritation, custom take-home whitening trays require a thorough dental examination that includes a dentist’s recommendation to suit your unique needs.
