How can teeth whitening help me?
While teeth whitening can surely help give you a beautiful smile, it can do more than just improve the appearance of your teeth. Looking great often means feeling great as well, meaning the confidence boost that comes along with your new look will help make face-to-face situations easier and more enjoyable and allows you to easily build your self-esteem.
What can I expect at a teeth whitening appointment?
Your teeth whitening appointment will begin with your dentist determining that you are a good candidate for the procedure. You should be in good dental health with no signs of teeth decay or gum disease. Additionally, you should not have any noticeable or visible porcelain dental restorations in the area which you would like whitened. If teeth whitening is right for you, your dentist will section off the teeth from the rest of the mouth to ensure the gel does not cause any irritation or discomfort during the procedure. Then, your dentist applies whitening gel to the teeth and leaves it to sit for about an hour until the end of the treatment.

Your dentist can help you determine if teeth whitening is right for you and your smile.
