Dental care isn't only about teeth cleanings and dental checkups; it's also about helping patients feel more confident by giving them a brighter smile, and this can now be accomplished in a number of ways.
There are various teeth whitening systems available today, so individuals who want the brightest smile possible have options, as do people who want to brighten their teeth themselves.
Many dentists offer teeth-whitening services through their practices. This process involves a gel containing hydrogen peroxide that interacts with a special light that accelerates the whitening. Appointments generally last about 90 minutes and teeth remain white for up to six months.
Store-bought whitening kits will include either a gel or a whitening strip that is to be applied to teeth before bed and removed the following morning. While these kits can be effective, teeth normally don't stay bright as long as they do after undergoing whitening at the dentist's.
The American Dental Association says that brushing twice a day with toothpaste that contains fluoride can also help teeth shine.
