Exacting the Perfect Smile: What You Can Do
One of the ways you can exact a perfect smile is by having your teeth whitened. You can also improve your smile by opting for porcelain veneers, undergoing gum or enamel re-contouring, or straightening your teeth. Any of these procedures can assist you in filling in gaps or correcting stains or chips as well as other dental imperfections.
Whiten Your Teeth for the New Year
Thanks to cosmetic dentistry, you can make strides you never thought possible that are effective, affordable and safe. This year is the year of your smile makeover in the form of either whiter teeth, straighter teeth, or better aligned teeth. One of the more popular requests that is made that falls under the category of cosmetic dentistry is teeth whitening – a process that is represented by several whitening treatment systems.
You can choose to have your teeth whitened in the office or at home. It just depends on your budget and level of comfort. When you choose an in-office whitening, a stronger agent is applied and whitening is activated with a plasma light. Depending on the strength used, the agent can whiten and brighten teeth up to 10 shades lighter. This method is a fast and effective technique especially helpful to patients who do not want to wear a dental tray and desire immediate results.
Custom Whitening Trays
When trays of bleach are used, impressions of the teeth are taken, custom trays are fabricated and the trays are then filled with a whitening agent. The results usually can be seen in about three days. Different agents can be used and people with sensitive teeth tend to like this method. The process can be facilitated on patients after the full eruption of the second molar teeth, which happens when the patient is around 12 years old. The trays are worn at home during the process.
You will see immediate results when an in-office bleaching system is used. Therefore, this specific process is recommended for anyone who has apparent stains and wants to see the fastest results possible. Using bleaching trays is often advised for patients with less severe staining or who wish to find a more affordable method for whitening their teeth. Whichever bleaching technique you choose will give you the kind of results you never thought were possible.
Of course, as mentioned, you have other cosmetic options or procedures available to you. It just depends on your tolerance level and your preferences.
