Everyone desires a perfect, gleaming white smile. The benefit of a beautiful smile will not only boost your outward appearance but also your internal self-confidence. Below we have outlined three options you have to help whiten your smile.
Eat Foods That Naturally Whiten Your Teeth
Believe it or not, there are foods that act as natural cleaning agents for your teeth. Foods such as apples, carrots and leafy greens are very fibrous and scrape plaque off of your teeth as you eat. They don’t act as a substitute for brushing and do not provide drastic results, but if you are looking for a way to help improve the whiteness of your smile, this can be a good place to start.
Take Home Whitening Kits
There are plenty of over the counter options that you can pick up at the drug store to help you improve your smile. Gels, strips, liquids, toothpastes, the list goes on. While they all claim to whiten your smile, some provide better results than others so do your research before making a decision.
You can also get take home whitening kits from your dentist that may be more expensive but will also provide better results. Take-home whitening can be a good alternative that lets you whiten your teeth at your own pace. Custom trays are fitted to your teeth, and a gel is provided to use in those trays. The whole process takes about two to three weeks.
In-Office Whitening Techniques
Zoom! Treatment, is an in-office whitening option that provides amazing results. It starts off by protecting your lips and gums, then a whitening gel is applied to your teeth and a special light is projected into your mouth to activate it. The light and gel work together to gently penetrate your teeth and break up stains and discolourations. The entire process takes about an hour and can whiten your teeth up to a full eight shades.
