The Fastest Way to Whiten Your Teeth

Posted in Teeth Whitening

You’ve decided that you want your smile to be white – as white as possible, in as quick of a timeframe as you can. Maybe you have a job interview, a big date, or a wedding to be in. Whatever your reason for wanting a whiter smile, your dentist can help you lift years of stain from your teeth in as little as an hour.

In-office laser whitening can be completed during just one appointment, taking even the deepest-set stains and lifting them off to reveal whiter, younger looking teeth. How does it work? During your visit, your dentist will apply a concentrated whitening gel to your teeth, which is then amplified by a bright light. After about 15 minutes the solution is rinsed away and then re-applied. After 3 to 4 of these short sessions, the teeth have been whitened by several shades as stain particles within the pores of the teeth are oxidized and naturally lifted from the enamel. Even after smoking, drinking coffee, tea, or red wine, you can experience a bright new smile that is sure to get noticed as soon as you walk out the door.

For touch up whitening every few months, your dentist will provide you with a home kit to use that will help remove new stains before they become noticeable. For even better results, see your dentist for a cleaning up to a week before your whitening treatment. During your cleaning, superficial stains and tartar are removed, so that the whitening solution can reach deeper into your enamel. See your dentist for check-ups every 6 months to keep your smile healthy and your whitening results lasting for years.
