Few things are more important during the holidays, or all year round for that matter, than a beautiful smile. And while other standards of beauty change with trends, a lovely white smile never goes out of style. So, if your pearly whites are looking a little dingy, or you just think it’s time to refresh one of your most valuable assets, your smile, it’s time to seek professional whitening, which can provide dramatic brightening you’ll want to show off this season and beyond.
Why Is Professional Whitening Needed?
There are several home remedies for whitening, which have become popular on sites like Pinterest, but even those that call for natural ingredients can still be abrasive and actually damage the enamel of your teeth, particularly if overused.
The same is true for over-the-counter options. While many can lighten teeth by a few shades, few are able to do more than that, and you shouldn’t repeatedly use whitening products, or else you risk doing irreversible damage to your enamel.
Avoid this by getting the results you want the first time, with professional teeth whitening. Your cosmetic dentist can help lighten your teeth by ten shades, in very little time, using professional-grade products that are made to work efficiently while also limiting sensitivity or the risk of damaging your teeth.
Plus, once you’ve reached your desired results, the dentist can provide you with great tips for keeping those teeth shining. In general, avoiding smoking, staining foods and drinks, brushing and flossing daily, drinking plenty of water and attending regular checkups are great ways to keep your teeth bright and more importantly healthy!
