A beautiful, white smile is the epitome of glamour, but many of us don’t have picture-perfect teeth. With professional teeth whitening, you can get a Hollywood smile that’s worthy of the stars.
Professional teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures, and it’s incredibly safe and effective. An experienced cosmetic dentist can safely lighten and brighten your teeth several shades whiter, giving you a beautiful, white smile. Professional teeth whitening is quicker, more effective, and more reliable than over-the-counter whitening kits, as it uses a stronger, professional-grade whitening solution.
Before beginning treatment, your cosmetic dentist will consult with you to discuss the results you hope to achieve. You may opt for a one-time in-office treatment, or a take-home whitening kit where you can whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home.
The in-office whitening procedure is often called “power whitening” and usually takes less than an hour to complete. Your cosmetic dentist will start by protecting your gums and other soft tissues with a protective covering. Once your teeth and gums are protected, a concentrated teeth whitening gel is applied to the teeth. The gel is activated with a special light, laser, or heat source that helps to speed up the whitening process. Depending on the type of whitening system used, the procedure can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour, and will lighten the teeth several shades in a single appointment.
Take-home whitening kits can also be used to achieve a Hollywood-worthy smile. The treatment begins by having your cosmetic dentist take molds of your teeth to make custom-fit trays. These trays fit snugly around your teeth and hold a specially formulated whitening gel in place. The trays are then worn for a prescribed period of time, depending on the desired outcome. With regular use, your teeth will be several shades brighter after several weeks of treatment.
Professional teeth whitening is safe, painless and easy to maintain. Your cosmetic dentist will provide you with instructions to help ensure that you get the best results possible. To keep your teeth looking whiter for longer, basic oral hygiene habits such as brushing and flossing, and regular dental checkups, should be maintained.
If you’re looking for a movie-star worthy smile, professional teeth whitening is the perfect procedure. With minimal discomfort and no recovery time, you can get the dazzling white smile of your dreams in no time. So why wait? Invest in a Hollywood smile that will last a lifetime and keep you feeling confident every day.
