One of the easiest and most affordable ways to upgrade your smile is to have your teeth whitened. There are several choices when it comes to tooth whitening systems. You can choose from a selection of over-the-counter tooth whitening products at your local drug store, or you can rely on your dentist.
Your Dentist Knows Your Teeth
It is a good idea to consult with your dentist before using OTC tooth whitening products. Your dentist knows your teeth and dental history and can recommend the tooth bleaching product best for you.
There are many variables when it comes to tooth whitening. The color of your teeth at the beginning of your treatment will influence the end result. Other ramifications include existing cosmetic dentistry such as crowns and dental bonding, gum health, and tooth sensitivity. Your dentist has experience treating tooth discoloration and understands the advantages and downsides of the available methods.
Your dentist may propose a tooth whitening solution that you can take home with you. In some cases, your dentist may recommend a professional treatment that is done at the dentist’s office. Professional tooth whitening can furnish significant results in a single treatment, but is often done over a few treatments.
A Whiter Smile Without Breaking the Bank
Tooth whitening is less pricey than it was in the earlier days of tooth whitening technology. Today, tooth whitening treatments are very cost-effective.
