If your smile is a little dingier than you would like, you may want to speak with your dentist about getting your teeth whitened.
Can't You Just Use Over the Counter Whiteners?
Over the counter whiteners are an option, but they are typically not the best option. Your teeth may be a bit brighter for a short time after using them, but none of them seem to last very long.
They also only help whiten your teeth a few shades. If you go to your dentist to have your teeth whitened, your teeth can be numerous shades whiter and the results can last much longer. With proper care, your whiter teeth can look great for a year or more.
Your dentist has access to products that are simply not sold over the counter. Their products work a lot better and are a lot safer. Don't take the risk that you may use the wrong product just before a big family event. Come and see what options our office can give you.
This year, make a statement. Contact our office in about two weeks before your big event so your teeth have a chance to relax and desensitize. This will allow you to show off your smile and feel good the entire time. It only takes a short time for massive results, so see how soon your dentist can fit you in.
