One of Three Teeth Whitening Options is Right for You

Posted · Add Comment

White SmileWhich aspect of your smile would you be most interested in improving? If you are thinking that your teeth could stand to be a little (or a lot) whiter, then you certainly aren’t alone.  Across the Raleigh area, adults of all ages are asking the dentist for advice on common teeth whitening solutions. Among the most popular are three options, one of which may be perfect for you.

ZOOM! professional teeth whitening is an advanced cosmetic solution which can dramatically improve the shade of your teeth in only one short dental visit. Sometimes referred to as laser whitening, this in-office procedure is powerfully effective but also safe for your teeth. During the treatment, a powerful whitening solution is applied to the teeth and activated with a specially calibrated curing light. Once your teeth have reached the desired shade, a custom whitening tray will be provided for periodic home use.

Custom-fitted whitening trays can be provided for home use, for those patients who desire the convenience of whitening at their own pace. The trays are formed to fit snugly around the teeth while contouring along the gum line. When used with a prescription strength whitening gel, the trays can produce a smile that is several shades whiter. As no method of teeth whitening is considered to be permanent, these trays can be saved and reused in the future at your discretion.

Disposable teeth whitening strips are mildly effective and very user-friendly, making them a safe choice for anyone who wants to test their tolerance for teeth whitening. These products typically contain the same active ingredients as their professional counterparts, but at a much lower concentration. This means that the whitening process may take several weeks longer than the professional methods. Not all whitening strips are created equally though, and you should consult your dentist for help in selecting the right one.

There are plenty of teeth whitening options in Raleigh. Be sure to contact a dentist today to find the one that is best for you.
