In a few short days, summer will officially begin, although many have already started to enjoy the sunshine. Several people use the summer months as motivation to work on their physical appearance. Toning up, getting tan, and shedding a few pounds are some of common goals many shoot for, but they seem to forget about another characteristic that accentuates all others: your smile! Simply whitening your teeth will brighten your smile and draw attention to one of your best traits. When looking to complete this simple procedure, there are many options to choose from, and the professionals at Miami Dental Sedation Spa are able to assist you.
Over-the-counter teeth whitening systems are typically safe and effective. They have a low concentration of whitener however, so you will need to use them longer to achieve the best results. If you are looking for something a bit more potent, the dentists at Miami Dental Sedation Spa can supply you with a take-home product that contains a higher concentration of hydrogen peroxide that will work quicker than the over-the-counter variety. Using this method requires custom trays which are made after impressions of the mouth are taken at the office. The appropriate bleaching gel is then supplied with precise directions on how and when to use the product. Your third option is a procedure completed at the dental office called Zoom. This product contains very high concentrations of hydrogen peroxide that is light activated, and takes about an hour to complete. The final option is a procedure referred to as Power Bleaching and is a combination of the Zoom and Take-home bleaching procedures. This choice provides the deepest possible bleaching and also includes a desensitizing rinse or a fluoride gel to aide in any discomfort.
Regardless of your preference of method, all are simple to complete and will yield positive results. Speak to your dentist about the choice that is best for you, and this summer, let your smile shine as bright as the sun.
