You’ve taken the first step; you’ve decided that you are ready for a brighter, whiter smile, but where do you go from here? The toothpaste aisle is filled with gels, pastes, and kits that all promise a whiter smile. Will these products really give you the results you want? Most over-the-counter methods only succeed in removing minor stains and are unable to whiten teeth past their natural shade. If you are you looking for the convenience of at-home whitening with undeniable results, the answer is professional grade at-home kits under the supervision of Dr. McMillan.
At Holistic Dental Centers, we believe very strongly in the results our patients achieve with at-home whitening. Our kits are composed of custom fitted whitening trays and professional strength gel to dramatically enhance the appearance of your smile. You will be given detailed instructions for how many hours per day to wear the trays.
At-home tooth whitening works differently for every patient. Some will notice results almost immediately; others will see their teeth gradually become whiter over the first week of use. Whitening at home comes with many advantages. You can opt to whiten your teeth while you watch TV, clean up around the house, or even cook dinner. This system really gives you the convenience of whitening on your own schedule.
Once your teeth have reached the shade of white that you are looking for, you can stop daily use and just keep the trays to use for periodic touch-ups. Once teeth are whitened, it is important to maintain good oral hygiene and try to avoid stain causing foods and beverages such as tea, coffee, soda, red wine, and berries. If you do consume these things, make sure to brush or rinse immediately afterward.
Teeth whitening systems remain one of the best and most affordable ways to improve upon the smile. It allows patients to achieve a brand new look with little effort and cost.
