The Top 2 Ways to Whiten Your Teeth

Posted in Teeth Whitening

A bright smile is priceless, and when you’re proud of your smile you’re more likely to smile more often and be seen as someone that is happy and confident. If stained, yellow teeth keep you from smiling in photos with your friends or in social settings, it not only crushes your self-esteem, it can also make it seem to others like you don’t want to be there. Thankfully, there are some great ways to whiten your smile and change all of that! Here are the top 2 ways to brighten your smile, and what you can expect.

#1 – In Office Laser Whitening (One Hour Whitening)

In-office laser teeth whitening can whiten your teeth by several shades in just one hour-long appointment. Professional grade whitening gel is applied to your teeth and then accelerated by using a very bright light to speed up the disintegration of stain particles. The gel is then rinsed away and reapplied one or two times until the desired effects are achieved. You’ll walk out of the office with dramatically whiter teeth.

#2 – Custom Whitening Trays Made by Your Dentist

Your dentist will make an impression of your teeth and create a custom-fitted whitening tray as well as provide you with professional strength gel. A drop of gel is placed in the area of each tooth, and the tray is worn for an hour a day, for up to two weeks (the first time you whiten). Results are comparable to in-office whitening, and exceed anything that’s available over the counter. Maintaining your results is easy, because the trays last forever and you can buy refill gel from your dentist as you need it (usually once a year.)
