The smile revolution is here. That means people want to make their teeth sparkling white with very little effort and cost.
The truth is that teeth whitening options abound. There is an option available for every budget and temperament. Some work. Some don’t. And, put bluntly, at-home teeth whitening kits are simply a waste of money.
If you want white teeth over the long haul, in-office bleaching and professional teeth whitening treatments are simply the only way to go. Over-the-counter whitening systems provide only temporary results and that, quite frankly, can be frustrating for someone who eagerly wants a brighter smile.
What’s more? There are some dangers associated with using over-the-counter teeth whitening kits. If they are used without my recommendation, over-used, or used incorrectly, they can harm tooth enamel and irritate gum tissue. Over-bleaching can also produce an ugly bluish hue, or uneven results, otherwise known as “the technicolor effect.”
To ensure the health of your smile, talk to a cosmetic dentist, like myself, about teeth whitening.I specialize in giving people brighter, whiter smiles using safe, cutting-edge technology.
