Teeth whitening has been around for years, and the demand for services and bleaching products is increasing. Feeling confident about your smile is so important and if removing stains and brightening your teeth helps, then it may be a service for you.
Over-the-counter products for whitening are safe and affordable. They can be effective but it’s important to follow directions carefully. Sometimes the product needs to be used for an extended period of time for results. Dentist offices that offer whitening services can generally get results much quicker since they are using stronger materials.
Take home bleaching is a technique used by many and is supplied by your dentist. This higher concentration of hydrogen peroxide works quicker than over-the-counter products with very good results. The Zoom whitening procedure is completed in the dentist office, also with a very high concentration of hydrogen peroxide. Then there is the Power Bleaching option which combines the take home bleaching and Zoom procedure for an extra effect.
Whatever method you choose, be sure to discuss any discomforts with your dentist since there are ways to decrease or eliminate minimal pain.
