Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry treatment that aims to eliminate dental stains and make the dentition acquire a whiter and brighter hue. The current popularity of aesthetics has made this dental procedure one of the most requested in recent years.
Types of whitening:
Professional Whitening: These in-office options contain whitening elements in higher concentrations and produce results much faster than other over-the-counter options. In fact, teeth can be visibly whiter in just one visit. You also have the added benefit of a treatment that is supervised by a dental professional.
Laser Whitening: Laser teeth whitening is an effective way to quickly remove stains. In fact, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry says that laser teeth whitening can whiten a patient’s teeth up to 10 shades in about an hour. The procedure is done in the dentist’s office, so you should see your dentist if you are interested in this procedure.
