To receive the oral health care your smile needs, it is essential to always make sure your teeth and gums are cleaned thoroughly. This includes severe oral health risks associated with having unsightly teeth and gums. However, if your teeth are cleaned and are simply stained or discolored, you may want to seek out a tooth whitening treatment system. Studies have shown that 90% of all adults believe an attractive smile makes a person more appealing to the opposite gender. Thus, there is an incentive to provide yourself with the most beautiful smile possible.
To enhance the color of your smile, in-office professional whitening treatments have proven to be the most successful. In as little as one office visit, your teeth can be whitened by up to ten shades. This is because in-office whitening treatments use highly effective and safe gels that are placed in whitening trays customized for your exact dental profile. They’re often so effective that multiple treatments over extended periods of time are not needed. Your dentist will be able to provide you with at-home treatment kits that can give minor touch-ups as needed.
Another form of teeth whitening treatment system is available at local stores. These are known as over-the-counter products and come in a wide variety of forms. As our society has become more attached to personal beauty, the whitening system trend has exploded with it. Unfortunately, this means there are several products on the market that are simply a cash grab and do not function as they should. Thus, always speak with your dentist before using any over-the-counter products.
