Tis the season for pumpkin picking to begin, which will soon be followed by family feasts and non-stop holiday parties. While another Christmas might feel like it’s sneaking up on you, chances are the stains on your teeth have not. Over the course of months and years minor discoloration can worsen, taking a drastic toll on the appearance of your smile. This can cause a lack in confidence, as a result. But it doesn’t have to be your fate. If insecurity is not the kind of thing you want to carry into all your celebrations this holiday season, consider the ways professional teeth whitening could brighten your smile and spirits.
Whiter Teeth With the Help of Cosmetic Dentistry
While some over-the-counter products can lighten teeth by a few shades, professional whitening can drastically reduce staining, providing you with visibly whiter teeth. After treatment many patients’ teeth are up to seven or eight shades lighter. Best of all, cosmetic dentists offer forms of whitening to fit every level of staining, timeframe and budget.
If You Want Fast Results
If you would like drastic results, fast, then in-office whitening is the best solution. Using a safe bleaching agent that can be activated through the use of a special light, the dentist can help you leave the office with a noticeably brighter smile in as little as an hour. This is a great option if you’ve delayed treatment until just before a big party or photo opportunity.
Take Home Treatment
If you have a little more time to commit to whitening treatment, there are also at-home options, which can offer similar results with less of a monetary investment. These options are still professional grade, making them reliable and safe for whitening. At-home whitening usually takes a few weeks to complete, but can leave your smile dazzling just in time for the holidays.
