15 Apr Professional Teeth Whitening: What are the Options?
Summertime is approaching, and for many, this means big events. Your wedding day, graduation or perhaps an important job interview are great reasons to want to show off your best, brightest smile! White teeth are on almost everyone’s to-do list. However, many people have a hard time finding the time to spend whitening their smiles! Here at True, we understand your time is precious, so our Kelowna cosmetic and restorative dentists have compiled your options for the quickest, best professional teeth whitening options.
In- Office Professional Teeth Whitening
If you’re looking for the fastest and most effective teeth whitening option, in office professional teeth whitening is the way to go! Your dentist will apply a gel to your gums to protect them from being irritated from the teeth whitening treatment. Your dentist will then apply bleach and apply a special light to speed up the whitening process. Within an hour your teeth can look up to 10 shades whiter. Your Kelowna cosmetic and restorative dentists can recommend a personalized treatment plan to help you get your whitest, brightest smile.
At-Home Teeth Whitening Kits
If you have a little extra time, our Kelowna cosmetic and restorative dentists can prescribe you at-home teeth whitening kits. Our team here at True Dental will make you a custom whitening tray made specifically to fit your mouth. True Dental sends you home with complete instructions and a peroxide-based gel that is less intense than our in-office bleaching. This allows clients to complete their teeth whitening routine in the comfort of their own home and provides some ongoing maintenance.
Surface whitening products such as teeth-whitening strips, paint on tooth gel or whitening toothpaste are available at most drug or grocery stores. These offer a cost-effective teeth whitening solution for light, surface stains. However, if you’re low on time (or patience), these products will take longer and won’t produce the dramatic results of prescribed teeth whitening kits or professional teeth whitening services.
