Now that summer is here, you want to look your best. Summer weddings, Graduations, and get-togethers are incentives to find a way to improve our appearance and our confidence. Teeth whitening is a fast, easy and effective way to improve your smile and take years off your appearance. Dr. Ryne Johnson, prosthodontist and director of Newton Wellesley Dental Partners was an early pioneer in dental whitening and has lectured throughout the country on techniques to enhance a smile.
Many people choose over the counter teeth whiteners because they think that this is easier than in-office teeth whitening. With all the whitening products available over-the-counter, such as toothpastes, mouthwashes, and related products it can be confusing. But, all have similar complaints: from blisters, to skin peeling inside the mouth, and permanent taste-bud damage. Store-bought whiteners do not use custom trays which leaves the chemicals in the products to irritate your mouth and gums.
Not everyone is a candidate for teeth whitening, which means that over-the-counter whitening products can leave your teeth looking worse. Fillings and dental reconstructions can stain, but can’t be whitened or brightened which means you may end up with teeth that are darker than the rest.
In-office teeth whiteners are convenient, fast and the procedure is performed by a dental professional in a safe environment for better, longer-lasting results. In-office teeth whitening procedures have the best, longest lasting results and can whiten teeth up to 9 shades.
