A patient came to Time Dental looking to freshen his smile. We discussed what it was that bothered him about his smile. He said he was unhappy with the colour of them and thought that they looked discouloured. He wanted a brighter smile and wanted to also surprise his girlfriend whom he was going to see in 3 weeks time.
We discussed his options. The simplest way to freshen up your smile is to use professional tooth whitening. It is still one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry services as it is safe and effective if carried out properly. He was unaware of the types of professional tooth whitening systems. One option for professional teeth whitening is to use custom fit trays that are loaded with the whitening gel, and then placed in the mouth for 40 minutes. The process is then repeated once daily for 10-14 days. This is a gentle way of freshening up your smile and will have a huge impact on your confidence.
Another option is the in-office tooth whitening system. Some in-office systems use a light source to activate the whitening gel, this is sometimes called laser teeth whitening although no laser is actually used. Other in-office teeth whitening systems are chemically activated so there is no need for the light. In-office teeth whitening can boost the shade of your teeth up by a few shades straight away. We recommend that if you opt for the in-office system, combine it with the professional at home kit to help stabilise the whitening process. Both types of tooth whitening produce the same results except the in-office is faster.
