If you are looking to change the appearance of your teeth, whitening may be a cosmetic option for you to consider. There are many teeth whitening options at your local pharmacy, but you should first consult with your dentist before pursuing these.
Why professional teeth whitening?
With over-the-counter teeth whitening options available, you may not think about having your teeth whitened professionally. However, dentists have the training and access to materials that can help you achieve your dream smile.
At Home Teeth Whitening
The "at home" techniques involve your dentist making custom trays which fit into your mouth. These are then filled with bleaching materials.
When worn for a few hours a day, noticeable results are seen generally within a few days to a couple weeks. Results vary for each person and we will be happy to help you decide which method will work best for you.
Some of the factors involved include the intensity of the stains, whether or not you have fillings or crowns on your teeth and what may have caused the stains.
