Want whiter teeth? Have a wedding in the near future? Class reunion coming up? A portrait pending? We have 3 different methods for whitening teeth. If you want to make your teeth whiter for a special day, plan ahead so that you are ready for the pictures. We can help you have whiter teeth in about a week, and it is recommended that you finish up the process about a week before the big day.
Why do we recommend leaving a week of time before the big day? We like to allow the new whitening shades to settle in for about that duration. We also recommend you have your teeth professionally cleaned before you start to whiten them… so that any surface stains are removed first.
Professional Teeth Whitening
At Aabsolutely Smiles, we use custom-fit trays for teeth whitening. Custom-fit trays produce long-lasting whitening. You will have whiter teeth in just a week with custom fit trays.
You own the trays too… so you will be able to use them for years to come. All you need to touch up your whiter teeth is new whitening gel.
Teeth Whitening And Sensitivity
Will my teeth become sensitive to cold drinks or ice cream when I whiten my teeth? You might experience some slight sensitivity to cold after your whitening. However, we use systems that incorporate sensitivity reducers and sensitivity generally subsides shortly after the process has been completed.
The Economical Option
Wondering how to make your teeth white economically? We have strips for tooth whitening that work well for teens, young adults and those who want more economical whitening. The results are very good but they are just not as long lasting as the custom-fit tray procedure. Over-the-counter tooth whitening strips are more difficult to use and require adhesion at multiple times per day, every day, for weeks.
It is altogether too hard to stay with the store-bought strip approach long enough to get your teeth noticeably whiter. We have started offering more serious “in-office” whitening that produces a good immediate result and can be followed up at home with a few applications of whitening strips.
Tooth whitening has been done for more than 10 years and has been a good way to improve self-esteem and general appearance. We don’t recommend weekly or monthly touch-up teeth whitening; our patients find that they don’t require a touch-up until at least 6 months to 1 or 2 years after the initial procedure.
