Many people turn to cosmetic dentistry to improve their smile, especially in terms of coloration. Sometimes it seems like everyone wishes their teeth were just a little bit brighter. Luckily, it doesn’t take as long as you might think to see the results you want with in-office whitening.
This whitening procedure is often accomplished with an application of peroxide gel strong enough that the gums need to be protected. There may be several applications of the gel adding up to an hour total. Some stains require multiple appointments.
There are other options available, such as laser teeth whitening. Additionally, for severe discoloration or damage, you might find that veneers are a better option. Each person has a unique mouth and there is no one solution that works best for everyone. Your best bet is to discuss your expectations with your cosmetic dentist to see which option is right for you.
