The holiday season is all about taking selfies with your friends and family and posting them on Instagram. However, if your smile isn’t ready to say, “Cheese!” then you may be sitting on the sidelines while your friends snap a selfie or two.
It can be hard to maintain a clean, white smile— especially on a consistent basis. If you have let your teeth go a little and they look more of a tinged tan or yellow than actual white, we at McDowell Dental Group can give you a whiter smile just in time for the holidays.
Yes, you can go to your nearest grocery store or pharmacy and pick up a box of whitening strips and toothpaste, but your results won’t be nearly as strong as professional ones. Although over-the-counter whitening products contain the same ingredients as professional ones such as hydrogen peroxide, they only contain a small amount which means that you won’t get nearly as good of results from them alone. Here at McDowell Dental Group, we use a type of whitening called chairside bleaching which is done during a series of appointments. However, after just one appointment, patients notice a visibly whiter and brighter smile than before.
If you just have small surface stains that you want to get rid of before your first-holiday party, then we may recommend one of our take-home whitening kits. Each kit comes with an impressionable whitening tray and gel that you can use from the comfort of your own home. Depending on the severity of your stained teeth, we will prescribe you with the right concentration of dental bleach.
