What is the Fastest Way to Whiten My Teeth?
December 31, 2018
Sometimes things in our life arise that mean that we want to make an improvement to the way we look – fast. It could be a special personal event such as a wedding, a vacation or even something important at work, but if we feel self-conscious about an aspect of our appearance, it can have a negative impact on the entire occasion.
A smile is an important gesture, particularly at the type of events described above. Therefore, you will want to ensure that your grin is in the best condition possible. Unfortunately, few of us are blessed with naturally white teeth and are instead sporting a smile that is yellowed, stained or simply not as bright as we would like it to be. The good news is that teeth whitening procedures can change all that and give you a smile that you can be proud and confident to share.
What is teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening is a type of cosmetic dentistry procedure that is designed to eliminate stains from your teeth and lighten their color so that your smile looks brighter, healthier and more attractive than before. While there are many different products such as toothpastes and mouthwashes that claim to be able to whiten your teeth, the truth is that these tend to take weeks or months of use to have any noticeable impact on your teeth. This is primarily because the strength of the whitening agent that is approved to be used in such products is really fairly weak. Many also contain abrasives which claim to scrub the stains from your teeth but can damage the enamel in the process.
Other products, such as take-home kits and products found on online shopping channels tend to have slightly higher levels of bleach, but still take repeated use in order for most patients to obtain the shade of whiteness that they desire.
For fast, effective teeth whitening choose in-office whitening procedures
If time is of the essence, then the best option for whitening your teeth is professional, in-office whitening. Carried out by our dentist, this type of whitening has been proven to deliver the best results after just one appointment although multiple sessions may still be required if your teeth are particularly badly discolored or stained. Professional teeth whitening has several distinct advantages over the alternatives.
Firstly, the grade of bleaching agent used during in-office whitening is considerably higher than that which is found in at-home treatments. This is because this grade of bleaching agent is only approved for use by a professional. Nevertheless, since the chemicals used are much more potent, as you would imagine, the results are faster and far superior.
Secondly, your treatment is carried out by a trained and experienced professional. This ensures that there is an even application of the whitening agent to your teeth, improving the consistency of your result and reducing the likelihood of nearby gum and other soft tissue being irritated by the chemicals.
