It’s important to be happy with the way that you look. It’s not just a matter of ego but it gives you the self-confidence to be comfortable in both business and social circumstances. It has been said that a smile is the first thing others notice about us. If that’s true a healthy smile can have a lasting impression.
White teeth seem to epitomize a healthy smile. Maybe that’s why teeth whitening systems have become so sought after in recent years. Whitening is actually the most commonly asked for procedure among cosmetic dental patients.
What’s the most successful way to whiten your teeth? The longer a whitening solution is in close contact with your teeth the better. Over the counter whitening trays don’t fit well enough and the solution contains less hydrogen peroxide than those available from your dentist. The chemical content of a professionally administered whitener can be three times higher than one that you can buy in a drugstore. Furthermore, the trays that your dentist provides are custom fit to your mouth.
Professional tooth whitening is perfectly safe for most people but if you suffer from gum disease you should consult with your dentist before proceeding. It is not recommended for those under the age of sixteen and pregnant women should avoid whitening solutions. Look for the ADA Seal of Approval on over the counter products.
