Now that the weather is cooling down, many of us are indulging in hot coffee, tea, red wine and chocolate which has left many people’s smiles looking a bit darker than they would like.
While there is a wide range of grocery store tooth whitening products on the market, many of them are ineffective and prolonged or incorrect use could potentially damage your enamel.
With all whitening, it is important that you have your teeth checked and cleaned prior to the treatment to make sure you are a suitable candidate.
At The Dental Practice, we offer two proven and safe ways to whiten your teeth.
Your dental professional will take impressions of your teeth to make custom fitted whitening trays. These trays are worn with a safe concentration of peroxide for up to 45 minutes per day for up to 14 days. This option is ideal for people who want a brighter smile in the comfort of their own home. It also allows you to “top up” your whitening whenever you have a special occasion or just want to spruce-up your smile!
Your dental professional will place a high concentration of hydrogen peroxide solution on your teeth for eight minutes and this process is repeated up to four times.
This is an excellent option for patients who are time poor or want to see results sooner. It is also a great accelerator for the bleaching process, if used in conjunction with the whitening trays, which are included.
So why not lighten up in time for summer!
