Ah, another new year; what a perfect time to finally make your smile the stuff of dreams! Professional whitening treatment can help make that happen for you, so that you can spend the coming months confidently showing off your pearly whites. In fact, in very little time and with minimal investment, professional whitening can drastically improve your smile, helping you to look and feel younger in spite of the passage of time. So, if you really want to make 2016 your best year yet, start by caring for your smile through cosmetic dentistry, like professional teeth whitening!
Why Should You Go with Professional Whitening?
There are plenty of over-the-counter products that tout whitening capabilities. From toothpastes to mouthwashes and even chewing gums, have you ever noticed just how many dental care items are now labeled as “Whitening?”
The internet is also filled with ideas about home remedies meant to whiten teeth with only basic groceries or household cleaning products.
Unfortunately, the over-the-counter options vary widely in effectiveness, and few are able to give the kind of dramatic results that professional whitening can provide. And though home remedies may use “safe,” “all-natural” ingredients, that doesn’t mean that they’re safe for use on your teeth. Items like baking soda and lemon juice can be too abrasive to safely use on your teeth’s enamel, so be sure to consult your dentist before starting any home remedy, and follow the directions outlined if you do choose to use an over-the-counter treatment.
If you want dramatic results, however, consider the benefits of seeking treatment through your cosmetic dentist. It can often lighten teeth by up to ten shades, helping to noticeably lighten your teeth and make your smile appear younger in the process.
