Teeth Whitening in Time for the Holidays

During the holiday season, there are endless photo opportunities with family and friends.  And of course we all want to look our best!  If you want a beautiful, bright, white smile for holiday photos this year, now is the time to make an appointment for professional whitening.  Teeth become darker and yellower as we age, and regular use of tobacco, coffee, or red wine can cause staining.

While over-the-counter tooth whitening products may seem like an inexpensive and quick fix, dentist-supervised tooth whitening is the safest, most effective way to brighten your smile. Professional whitening in a dental office is the most effective method because even though stronger agents are applied, the rest of the mouth, including the gums, is protected. The best whitening systems feature a buffer in the gel that protects the tooth enamel from damageare very effectiveand can transform teeth in a single office visit. Other advantages include:

  • Properly Fitting Mouth Trays. Over-the-counter tooth whitening trays are one-size-fits-all. Poorly fitting trays may allow the tooth whitening gel to leak, which can result in gum irritation and less-effective whitening.
  • More Comfortable Solutions. With today’s in office systems, even people with sensitive teeth can undergo teeth whitening treatment.
