Before we begin, it’s important to note that while our natural teeth are not perfectly white, brightening your smile by 2–3 shades could make all the difference. You’ll always want your teeth to look natural and cosmetic dentistry can do the trick.
Our teeth stain and endure some wear over time. That’s why teeth whitening is available and very convenient for people to access. Yes, all those coffee breaks were doing some damage.
The bad part? Teeth whitening is considered cosmetic and is not generally covered under dental/medical insurance policies.
The best part about professional teeth whitening is that it only costs a few hundred dollars and can really give you the confidence you need. There are various methods to giving your teeth that great glow.
You could opt into bleaching or a non-bleaching method. In-office sessions or chairside bleaching is recommended for those looking for a dramatic improvement to their smile. Store-bought whitening strips or gels don’t really hold a candle to the improvement executed by a dentist.
Another method to teeth whitening is getting a take-home solution from your dentist but again, this won’t be supervised by a dentist.
