Today, many people often think about ways to achieve a bright white smile and it just so happens that it is possible to get what you may have always wanted with the help of “whitening.” In fact, there are a few options when it comes to teeth whitening: over-the-counter whitening strips, removable whitening trays filled with a bleaching agent, or a whitening treatment referred to as Zoom, which is performed in a dental office. The great thing about whitening is that it is completely up to you on how you want to do it. You can choose to whiten both the top and bottom teeth at the same time or you could whiten the top teeth first and later whiten the bottom teeth if you so choose. It really all depends on your preference.
Additionally, the type of whitening method you choose can also determine how long the whitening treatment would take in order to reach the desired result. Typically, over-the-counter whitening strips can take a bit longer to reach a desired result since they are made with a weaker strength of peroxide. If you wish to see quicker results, you may want to consider whitening trays made in a dental office or Zoom whitening. According to River Run Dental Spa, “in most cases, patients who have chose Zoom have found that their teeth are six to 10 shades whiter after one treatment.”
If you’re considering whitening your teeth, it is best to speak with a dentist prior to beginning any whitening treatments, especially if you have sensitive teeth. This is because the products that make up whiteners are capable of causing temporary sensitivity to the teeth during whitening treatments, so if you have any prior sensitivity this could increase during whitening.
