Whitened Teeth Can Help You Make a Great First Impression
In any business or social scenario, a dazzling smile can make a wonderful first impression. Whether you are on a first date, making an important sales call, facing colleagues in a board room presentation, or heading back to a high school reunion, there is no limit to the times that you will want a beautiful smile to share. Knowing that your smile is radiant will provide a much-needed boost in your confidence as you interact with others. Teeth whitening is a great first treatment to try if you are looking to improve the quality of your smile.
There are Teeth Whitening Options
Once you have decided to whiten your teeth, there are a few options available that Dr. Fisher and his staff can educate you about. They can help you determine the most effective option for your situation.
- Dental-assisted whitening – This is the most effective option for two basic reasons. The treatment includes professional help in the dentist’s office. Also, this treatment provides immediate improvement in your smile. Your smile can be whitened by several shades in one office visit. This is the perfect option when you need quality results by an upcoming deadline.
- Teeth whitening gels/trays – These options are less costly, but they will not provide immediate results. This is partially because the whitening solutions are not as powerful as the solutions used in your dentist’s office. You should also consider that they do not provide as many tray sizes, so you may experience some discomfort during your treatment.
- Teeth whitening strips – This option is simple and largely effective. You will just need to wait several days to see the desired improvement in whitening.
- Teeth whitening toothpaste – While advertised as a tooth whitening treatment, these are typically only a polishing treatment.
Any tooth whitening procedure is very likely to use peroxide as the whitening agent. It essentially bleaches your teeth. The results will not be permanent, but the results will certainly be beautiful.
This treatment is the ideal solution for cosmetic improvement for a patient whose teeth have been stained by natural aging or by chemical damage (coffee, tea, sodas, smoking). The cost of whitening treatments is usually budget friendly and the treatment is a great way to begin the process of beautifying your smile.
