During December, it probably feels like you have a million things on your to-do list — like holiday parties to attend, family to see, and countless other occasions to show off your smile. So the next question is this: are your teeth ready to dazzle at every opportunity? If the answer is no, or if you’re not so sure, then it’s time to learn about your teeth whitening options in Ormond Beach!
In-Office Whitening for Fast Results
If you are interested in getting the fastest results possible (like perhaps for a fast-approaching holiday event), an in-office Zoom! Whitening treatment may be ideal for you. Using a high-powered bleaching gel that is activated with a special UV light, your dentist can brighten teeth by up to 8 shades in an appointment that lasts less than an hour. For its fast, effective results, Zoom! is a leader in in-office whitening treatments.
For less significant stains or discoloration, express whitening is usually also available in-office. As the name suggests, it’s a quicker way to get a brighter smile.
Whitening at Home
If there isn’t really a holiday rush on your whitening, or if you are considering gifting a whitening treatment for someone else, you may want to consider an at-home method. This approach is performed from the comfort of your home yet still offers the same fabulous whitening speed as an in-office treatment.
Professional whitening strips are one method: they are more powerful than what you can buy at the pharmacy and provide serious whitening for stained or discolored teeth. Apply the tape-like strips to the front side of the teeth and wear them for the recommended time period (usually 20 minutes) to gradually brighten your smile.
Professional whitening trays are also available from your dentist. Customized trays are created for the specific dentition of your teeth. You will be instructed to fill the trays with the bleaching gel and wear them for 20 to 30 minutes at night before you go to sleep. Over the course of 2 weeks, stains are lifted and whiter teeth are revealed.
Maintaining Your Results in 2019
You can make sure your teeth stay beautifully white throughout the coming year by keeping the following in mind:
- Brush your teeth twice a day and floss between teeth daily
- Rinse your mouth out after eating or drinking something with a strong color — like red wine, rare steak, or dark chocolate
- Drink dark beverages through a straw to limit contact with the tooth enamel
- Visit your dentist every six months for a routine checkup and cleaning
And that’s it! Make an appointment with your cosmetic dentist in Ormond Beach for teeth whitening in December and keep these tips in mind to smile with more confidence in the year to come.
