If you are one of the many who were not blessed with a perfect smile, take heart; today’s dentists can perform wonders when it comes to improving the look of our teeth. The easiest procedure, also the least invasive, is teeth whitening. This process has gotten a bad rap due to the ineffectiveness of many of the over-the-counter whitening treatment. Toothpastes, gels, rinses, and strips have all been touted as having remarkable results, but even those that are marginally effective are still no match for the whitening you can receive from experts in Teeth Whitening in Chesterfield MO.
The whitening toothpastes available at your local drug store can only improve the appearance of your teeth if your problem is surface stains such as you get from drinking coffee or wine, or smoking. Their formula includes stain removers and polishing agents, so they can accomplish some degree of improvement, but even the whitening toothpastes that have hydrogen peroxide can only improve your teeth by one shade. That improvement will not last very long, either.
Gels and strips used to improve the whiteness of teeth are both peroxide-based and need to be applied twice a day for approximately two weeks. They can give you some noticeable whitening, but both products can only last for two or three months before the whole process needs to be repeated.
Commercially-available whitening rinses are among the least effective products on the market. They contain hydrogen peroxide, but since the rinse is only in actual contact with your teeth for a brief period of time, it is doubtful that any meaningful whitening will take place. Going to a skilled and experienced dentist for your whitening treatments makes the most sense. He can provide you with a much higher degree of whitening and it will last longer than anything you can buy. It will be a two-stage process where he will make a mold of your teeth in order to create a tray. Into that tray you will apply the whitening gel and place it over your teeth for a short time over a few days. The whitening you receive will improve your teeth by anywhere from 4 to 8 shades and it will last longer than any over-the-counter products. Reclaiming your smile with the help of a dentist like Dr. Paul Gauthier DMD is relatively quick and easy, but it can make a big difference in the way the world sees you.
