Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure. Due to its popularity, a wide range of products are available in drug stores, but nothing beats professional teeth whitening.
Where to start?
First, make an appointment with your dentist for a complete check-up. This will help us determine the cause of your enamel’s discoloration and assess whether a whitening treatment will be successful. We’ll recommend a personalized teeth whitening treatment that will give you the results you’re looking for.
There are three available options:
- Whitening of a discolored tooth (internal whitening)
- In-clinic whitening
- At-home whitening
Which option is best for me?
It all depends on your needs and timeframe. In-clinic whitening will give you quick results. A dentist-supervised at-home whitening treatment is also very effective, but it requires several days of treatment. Although the teeth whitening process is progressive, you’ll see results after the very first application. Talk to your dentist to discuss which option is best for you.
Are results long-lasting?
Yes. Your teeth will stay white for one to two years, depending on your oral hygiene. A follow-up treatment is also needed every 12 to 24 months.
