This holiday season, treat yourself to something that will give you fresh confidence for the new year—tooth whitening services! 32 Inspired’s in-office whitening services work faster and last longer than over-the-counter options. If professional tooth whitening just isn’t in your budget, here are some other ways to keep your smile merry and bright this season.
Cut back on teeth-staining foods
Cutting back on stain-inducing foods like wine, coffee, cherries, and tomatoes will help keep your smile whiter, longer. Curry, balsamic vinegar, soda, and sports drinks are also common culprits of teeth staining, as their acidity can erode enamel and cause discoloration. If you can’t imagine cutting out coffee and wine forever, you might try to limit them to weekends-only or, if you don’t mind public ridicule, drink them through the straw.
Use at-home bleaching trays
Although professional whitening provides the best results, it can be pretty expensive. One less-effective, but more affordable option are at-home bleaching trays. Your South Park dentist can create custom-fitted bleaching trays which will gradually whiten your teeth over the course of 10 days. The bleach solution we use is weaker than in-office whitening gel, but is still stronger than over-the-counter whitening kits.
What about whitening strips?
Many popular toothpaste brands offer tooth whitening strips, which usually cost around $20 a box. This may seem like a great deal, but remember that when it comes to whitening, the cheapest solution is also usually the least effective. Whitening strips generally only make a noticeable difference in individuals who already have very light teeth. Professional whitening treatments use higher levels of peroxide than over-the-counter products, meaning results will be more dramatic and long-lasting.
Schedule Professional Tooth Whitening in South Park
Since our South Park dentists are able to monitor treatment in-office and adjust it to your needs, we are able to administer much stronger bleaching ages than those that patients can take home. That’s why professional tooth whitening is your best bet for a radiant smile that lasts for up to three years!
