With the holidays comes get-togethers with friends and family, and of course, photos to capture those moments. Many people feel uncomfortable showing their smile due to stains and yellowing. Consuming dark colored beverages like coffee, wine, and pop, eating foods like berries and tomatoes, and smoking tobacco can all lead to stains on the teeth. If you’re ready to start smiling again, you might choose one of the many teeth whitening solutions available this holiday season.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
While many at-home whitening solutions such as toothpastes and mouth rinses fail to show results, whitening trays and gels can be effective for most people. Teeth whitening trays are made from a flexible material that forms around your teeth for an accurate fit. To start whitening with a tray, just fill the tray with whitening gel and leave it over the teeth for the required amount of time. With just two weeks of treatment, you can have a brighter smile to show off this holiday season!
In-Office Teeth Whitening
The holidays come up quick, so if you don’t have time for teeth whitening at home you might choose a faster process. For more dramatic teeth whitening in only one session, you might choose to stop by your dentist’s office for professional laser teeth whitening. Your treatment with laser whitening will take less than an hour and can remove many years of built-up stains and yellowing. There is little to no discomfort experienced during or after the process, so you can be right back to preparing for the holidays with a smile you’re happy to show off.
