Does it seem like no matter how often you brush and floss your teeth your smile just doesn’t have the brilliance that it used to? Sometimes a whitening toothpaste can restore some of that dazzle but many people have turned to a more aggressive tooth whitening system. If you have tried one or more of the over the counter products but were disappointed in the results it may be time for a professional touch.
The formula that your dentist will use to whiten your teeth is much more effective than the ones that come in the whitening kits that you can buy at the corner drugstore. He can apply a whitening solution right in the office or if you prefer to go the DIY route your dentist can custom make whitening trays that you can use in the privacy of your own home. The custom fit will keep the bleaching solution from leaking out of the trays and onto your sensitive gum tissue.
The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry recommends professional whitening methods for reasons of safety as well as effectiveness. Once your dentist has determined that your teeth and gums are healthy you will be good to go ahead with the whitening process. You can expect to see improvement after one or two weeks.
