Most people are very self-conscious about the appearance of their mouth and smile. Discolored teeth are one of the most common concerns that people have about their own smiles. Fortunately with the advancement of technology, teeth whitening treatments are readily available, and they are safe and effective. However, as with any other investment, it is important to consider which treatment is right for you based on your teeth conditions, and your budget.
There are several over-the-counter teeth whitening products to choose from that can brighten your teeth by a few shades. These products, and even some less expensive treatments provided in a Dentist’s office can work to whiten your teeth, there have been recent advances in teeth whitening that involve a new system that can provide results like you’ve never seen before.
Teeth Whitening can give you dramatic results that are incomparable to any over-the-counter products or take-home kits from your Dentist. It is the most advanced treatment that involves a two-stage process in which a special gel is applied to each tooth to start the whitening process. A laser light is then used to release oxygen in and around the teeth, which permeates the teeth. The process is then repeated again four times to continuously whiten the teeth to their ultimate shine, which can be up to eight shades brighter.
This type of teeth whitening treatment can only be done in a dental office or clinic that is qualified and has the teeth whitening equipment. The treatment usually takes around an hour and you can see teeth whitening that will actually improve the look of your teeth by up to eight shades in lightness. There is no other tooth whitening system on the market that can give you this type of whitening from an hour-long procedure.
