Whiten Your Smile Quickly With Britesmile Whitening Technology

By: Gen Wright

Are your teeth stained or discolored? Are you hesitant to smile because you don't like how your teeth look? If you answered yes to either of these questions, there is a solution for you in the form of a teeth whitening procedure. In the past few decades, teeth whitening has made tremendous advances to the point where a significant amount of whitening is the expectation when you undergo a procedure. By using BriteSmile in-office whitening, you can brighten your smile an average of eight shades in a two hour-long appointment. In addition to BriteSmile, there are whitening options to fit every budget.

Over The Counter Whitening

The cheapest method of whitening available to you is to use an over the counter product. Whitening gels, strips and toothpastes can be found at most drug stores and are reasonably priced. Since these products are not specifically tailored to you and generally contain less hydrogen peroxide than dentist-approved methods, the results they offer are generally less dramatic. In addition, these methods also can take a much longer time to take effect. However, if you are interested in only a moderate amount of whitening or do not want to spend a large amount of money, an over the counter whitening product may be the best option for you.

BriteSmile In-Office Whitening

The quickest and most effective method of achieving a whiter smile is to have your dentist perform the procedure in his or her office using BriteSmile technology. After discussing with your dentist and making sure that an in-office procedure is what you want to pursue, he or she will start the procedure by applying the whitening gel to the front of your teeth. After this, your dentist will shine a special blue light onto your teeth for about twenty minutes. This process activates the hydrogen peroxide in the gel, which is the active ingredient that physically changes the color of your teeth. After repeating this process several times, your teeth will have whitened dramatically.

Take Home Whitening Kits

Another popular option that many patients pursue is to get a customized take home whitening kit from their dentist. When you decide to pursue this method, your dentist will begin by taking a detailed impression of your teeth. From this, he or she will be able to construct customized whitening trays that will fit perfectly onto your teeth. When you get home, you will apply whitening gel to the trays and then wear them for approximately one hour. After repeating this process every day for about two weeks, your teeth will have whitened significantly. Although this process takes longer than an in-office procedure, take home whitening is generally cheaper than having an in-office procedure.
