Your teeth are one of your most noticeable features. They are visible when you talk, laugh, and bite while you eat. Over time, they tend to get discolored, no matter how much care you give them. Luckily, these days there are numerous options available which can whiten your teeth and return them to their former glory.
There are numerous over the counter products that can help whiten your teeth at home. Whitening toothpastes, whitening strips and gels, and more recently whitening rinses are all readily available. However, most of these will not produce the results you are looking for. There are also whitening systems which you can purchase either in a pharmacy or from your dentist that use a mouth guard like mold, filled with a gel whitening solution and then fitted into your mouth for a prescribed period of time. You usually need to repeat this tiresome process for weeks, so if you are after quick result, this is not the solution.
Getting your teeth bleached at your dentist's is much more efficient. Dentists have a wide range of options available to them, including special lights, lasers, or heat treatments applied directly to your teeth. The process takes half an hour to an hour and you will see a significant difference as soon as it is finished. You may need to repeat this process several times if you are looking to get a really beaming smile but it is still a time saver compared to Pharmacy remedies.
Zoom whitening is the latest development and uses a strong bleaching agent which exfoliates the stains on your teeth bringing them back to their natural color. It has been proven to whiten teeth up to four shades, showing visible results each time you receive it. It has also proven to be a step above other similar products, as it does not harm your teeth and gums, but instead protects your enamel.
Call your dentist today and discuss the best options for you and your budget. If Zoom Whitening seems out of your price range, talk to your HR department and see if your company would consider taking on some of the cost. After all, it can only benefit their image in addition to yours.
