Teeth Whitening: Is it Really Possible to Have a Brighter Smile?

As you get older, you may notice that your “pearly whites” aren’t quite as white as they used to be. Coffee, tea, red wine—they all leave a mark on your teeth, and as long as you continue to consume your favorite beverages, your teeth will only become more stained. However, it truly is possible to have a brighter smile thanks to teeth whitening options available through your dentist.

One popular teeth whitening procedure is in-office laser whitening. A hydrogen peroxide bleaching solution is applied to the surface of the teeth, and laser energy activates it, thus accelerating the whitening process. As a result, you can have whiter teeth in under an hour.

 The benefit of laser whitening is that your teeth can become several shades lighter quickly and conveniently.

In addition, in-office laser whitening is comfortable and safe, as only a licensed dentist can administer it, thus guaranteeing you the best results. Your dentist will also provide you with complete aftercare instructions so that you can keep your teeth looking white.

If you prefer teeth whitening in the comfort of your own home, then Opalescence take-home whitening is a fitting choice for you.
