Do you have a special event coming up soon? If so, you may have already taken great care to find the perfect outfit, and may have even scheduled a hair appointment to make sure your tresses look their best. But what about your teeth? If you are concerned that your smile isn’t looking as bright as you would like, why not talk to your dentist about how to whiten teeth quickly. Cosmetic treatments, like professional teeth whitening, could help leave you with beautiful pearly whites that are picture perfect?
Get Dramatic Results Fast with Professional Whitening
If you’ve tried over-the-counter products in the past, and have been unhappy with the results, this is a great year to opt for professional whitening instead. By using professional-grade products, a cosmetic dentist can help create more consistent and dramatic results. Patients wishing to lighten their teeth by more than a few shades may also prefer the ease and effectiveness of professional whitening treatment, as opposed to OTC options, or even home remedies.
With any whitening treatment, including those that are labeled as “all-natural” or “safe,” it is important to follow the directions given. Otherwise you risk actually damaging your teeth’s enamel. It’s also important to consult your dentist if you experience extreme sensitivity during any whitening treatment.
Finally, if you are worried that your staining is too severe to be treated by whitening/bleaching, talk to your cosmetic dentist about alternatives. In some cases, bonding, veneers or even a dental crown may be a better way to correct discoloration or staining, particularly if it exists within a tooth.
Take-home Products Can Provide Great Results
Many dentists offer their patients the convenience of take-home whitening products, which can be used at one’s own convenience. These products can yield noticeable results quickly; they usually take a few weeks to achieve dramatic results.
Many patients enjoy teeth lightened between five and eight shades when they choose the efficiency of professional whitening rather than over-the-counter products. Though some OTC products can, in fact, lighten teeth, few are able to do as quickly or dramatically as professional treatment.
Could Veneers Be the Solution You Need?
Of course, if the cause of your teeth’s staining is either permanent or intrinsic, then the dentist might recommend an alternative to whitening. Porcelain veneers make a great solution, because they can help to hide cosmetic concerns including staining. Plus, porcelain is stain resistance, which allows it to create not only beautiful but also long-lasting and natural-looking results.
Veneers can also hide minor gapping between teeth and inconsistencies in the teeth’s shape or size, making them a great solution or addressing a wide variety of concerns.
