It is no secret that whiter teeth make us look more attractive, healthier, and even a bit younger. That’s why teeth whitening is a procedure that is very popular and routinely performed by dentists all over the country and around the world.
At-home teeth whitening kits are a low-cost option for people with discolored or stained teeth. These over-the-counter products are not as long-lasting as are professional dental whitening options, and they can wreak havoc on your mouth if applied incorrectly – so be sure to follow the directions very carefully.
That said, let’s take a look at a few of the newer offerings on the shelves today and where you can go to find out more about professional teeth whitening.
Crest 3D Whitestrips with Light – Dental Whitening Kit
Crest’s latest whitening strips come with a handheld blue light that you use to beam onto the whitening strips for 10 minutes, so the hydrogen peroxide can penetrate deeper into the teeth. After 10 days you should be able to see improvements in the shade of your teeth.
Crest 3D Whitestrips Dental Whitening Kit
This at-home teeth whitening kit from Crest features just the whitening strips minus the blue light. The whitening strips contain hydrogen peroxide. This teeth-whitening kit is gentler on your enamel than other at-home teeth whitening products.
AuraGlow Teeth Whitening System
The AuraGlow kit contains whitening strips that use carbamide peroxide as a whitening solution, mouth trays, and an LED light with a built-in timer (so you don’t go beyond the allotted time). The LED light speeds up the whitening process.
Professional Teeth Whitening in Plantation, Florida
Even the best at-home whitening products cannot produce the safe and long-lasting results that you would get at the dentist’s office. If the discoloration on your teeth is severe, the stain has probably penetrated so deep that no at-home teeth whitening kit can fix it. Plus, the discoloration may be from the inside – the yellowish-colored dentin below the surface of the teeth – which home-based whitening cannot treat.
Your dentist uses professional-grade tools and products that can make your teeth seven shades lighter. In our dental clinic at the offices of Dr. Ernie Soto, we use the wildly popular Zoom Teeth Whitening system – for a whiter and brighter smile that will completely transform your entire look. Your smile is very important, and Dr. Soto will whiten your teeth in a gentle manner that will not weaken your enamel. He will explain how to maintain your bright white teeth so that you’re always ready for selfies and group photos!
