The new year may mean you want to make big changes in your life. Some people use the motivation of New Year’s resolutions to kick off a new lifestyle or to try things they have never tried. Do you want to refresh your life a bit in 2018? Whitening your teeth can be a fast and simple way to make a big difference in your appearance. Even if you are a person who does not make resolutions, you may find yourself finally wanting to get that bright, white smile that you have always dreamed of.
Brighten In The Office
Whitening treatments done in your dentist’s office can be one of the fastest ways to whiten your smile. The treatment can brighten your natural tooth color up to 8 or 10 shades. By breaking up years of discoloration in less than an hour, you can leave the office with a dazzling grin that can last awhile. For the treatment, the soft tissue of your lips and gums will be covered for protection. A professional-grade bleaching gel will be applied to your teeth before being cured with a special light. Whitening by your dentist allows for a safe and fast way to whiten your smile.
Solutions To Take Home
Depending on your timeline goals and budget, you may opt to choose a professional-grade solution to take home. Your dentist will provide you with custom trays filled with a whitening compound that you will wear in the comfort of your own home. Optimal results are typically achieved within two weeks. Take-home whitening treatments can also provide for a good follow-up to in-office whitening treatment.
Whitening treatments only address stains that affect the outside of your teeth known as extrinsic stains. Intrinsic stains, discoloration from within the tooth, cannot be removed through whitening. Your dentist can help you determine the type of discoloration affecting your teeth and help you choose the best solution to brighten your smile. Cosmetic dentistry options may be required to cover intrinsic discoloration.
