Get Holiday Ready with Whiter Teeth
It’s that time of year! Time to squeeze in that visit to the hair salon so your grays are hiding or your roots are touched up for that holiday party to see all of your extended family that one time of year. Are you happy with your smile? The shade of your teeth? Now is a great time to treat yourself with a gift of whitening. Show off those pearly whites at your holiday party and your teeth will be glowing in all of your family photos this year.
We have several different whitening options available to our patients. The simplest, on the go option is our Opalescence Go trays. They are designed for anyone to wear, meaning they are not custom fit. There are 10 sets of trays in a box and are worn for about 20-30 minutes at a time. If you want results fast, this is the choice for you. These allow you to choose your frequency of whitening, once or twice a day for 5-10 days. It has been reported from our patients that these trays may create a bit of sensitivity if you have sensitivity issues before whitening. Sensodyne toothpaste or any toothpaste with Potassium Nitrate can help reduce this sensitivity.
Our next option is our Glo Whitening. If you are going for the latest fad of whitening, this is it. This is also a speed whitening that can be used on the go. For just 32 minutes a day, Glo is used in 4 separate 8-minute sessions, giving you that shade you’ve always wanted. With a heat and light activated device that goes in your mouth over the whitening gel, you will see results fast with no sensitivity. The gel has a built-in desensitizer creating no sensitivity for the patient during or after treatment. This is a great option that typically leaves you with some gel to touch up on a later occasion which is an added bonus.
Our last option we have available to our patients is our custom whitening trays. These are super nice for patients who know they drink coffee or wine on the daily and will need to whiten several times over their lifetime. This involves dental impressions of the teeth, creating custom made whitening trays for you and just you. The starter kit comes with whitening gel syringes to fill the trays and get to your desired results. These are nice because the gel syringes come in several different percentage options giving you the choice of how long each whitening session lasts. Some people want to sleep in their trays, making it the most convenient for them (minimal sensitivity), while others want a speed whitening session with a higher percentage. You choose what you would like. The refill gel syringes are offered for purchase at a low price once you already have your trays which is a huge advantage.
All of our whitening options are great for getting the results you want, fast. As long as you commit to it and invest the time to whiten, your smile will be glowing in no time. Contact us today to discuss which option is best for you and we can get you on your journey to the shade you’ve always wanted.
