Dull, stained or darkened teeth look unhealthy and unattractive. Even if you brush twice daily and keep up with regular dental cleanings, your teeth may still change in color and brightness as you get older. Aging impacts the color and appearance of the teeth, as well as stains from coffee, tea, wine, tobacco and other dark-pigmented substances. Even medications and health conditions can affect your teeth color. If you want to quickly improve the appearance of your smile, consider professional teeth whitening.
Professional vs OTC Teeth Whitening
There are many over-the-counter teeth whitening products, from toothpastes that claim to whiten to strips, pens and gels. These products can remove surface stains from teeth and lighten the teeth a few shades, but there are limits to what they can achieve. Many will not remove intrinsic stains or discolorations that are under the enamel, so teeth will still look dull and darker. Other concerns are the safety for teeth and if the whitening will appear even on the teeth.
Professional teeth whitening is performed either in-office or with at-home whitening trays. The difference is the strength of the whitening agents used – these are prescription-level whitening products that are not available OTC. Your teeth whitening will be supervised by a dental professional to ensure it is safe for your teeth and gums, while providing even, effective whitening. Professional in-office teeth bleaching can whiten your teeth several shades in about an hour.
Fast Smile Makeover
If your teeth are darker or dull, it can make you look older. It also makes your teeth look unhealthy, even if they are in good shape. Teeth whitening is the fastest way to give your smile a makeover. In-office teeth whitening can drastically change your tooth color and bleach away surface and intrinsic discolorations to bright, beautiful teeth. This can be a wonderful way to quickly change your smile before a big event like a wedding, graduation, reunion or other social occasion when you want to look your best.
