Sometimes you just want a brighter smile. Maybe you have stains on your teeth, or maybe no matter what you do, you just can’t get them as white as you’d like. Cosmetic dentistry is a great option to make your smile perfectly white.
Over the Counter Options Are Cheap and Easy
One of the first things that many people try when they want a whiter smile is over the counter options. Things like whitening toothpaste, gels, and strips are available at pharmacies, grocery stores, and more. These over the counter options work well if you don’t have much to deal with or if you’re looking for a slight whitening. Over the counter options are cheap and easy to use. They also generally offer a quick fix, which is great if you need a whiter smile in a short amount of time. However, they aren’t the best option if you need a more intense white.
Professional Bleaching With Your Dentist
You can head to your dentist to get a professional bleaching. Dr. John Gordon is able to get rid of the stains on your teeth and use a more powerful whitening agent than is available on the over the counter options you can get. The bleaching agents that a dentist uses are safe and will be able to get your teeth as white as possible. Plus, you’ll have the dentist keeping an eye on your dental health, ensuring that nothing goes wrong. This is perfect if you’re worried about potential problems.
Laser Whitening is Expensive but Effective
Another option to consider when you want really white teeth is laser whitening. This is newer technology that will ensure the whitest possible teeth. Laser whitening will take multiple sessions, but it will ensure that your teeth won’t have any more stains. It’s not painful, and this procedure keeps your teeth white for up to two years. The downside to laser whitening is that it can be expensive, costing well over $1,000. This is something that you should discuss with your dentist if you’re interested in ensuring your teeth stay white for a long period of time.
Consider Veneers For a Better Smile
If all else fails, a last-ditch option to get and keep your teeth as white as celebrities is to get veneers. These pieces are not your actual teeth. Instead, they are pieces of porcelain that are bonded to the front of your teeth. They are bright, white, and will give you the look you desire. However, they are not your teeth. They will help in a variety of situations. Not only will veneers help you have a brighter smile, they can help with strange spacing, chipped teeth, or crooked teeth. Because of this, a number of people have veneers for a better smile.
Cosmetic dentistry can make your smile brighter and whiter. It can make you feel more confident in your day-to-day dealings, and help you get ready for big events. Whether you’re looking for a permanent solution or something to help with a special event, your dentist can help you figure out the best solution.
