Whether it’s the cup of coffee every morning, or the red wine to relax at night, several things can contribute to a dull or dingy smile. And that’s the last thing you want on your wedding day! At my dental office in Garden City, we can transform your smile to wedding-white with professional whitening.
Professional whitening can help make your smile dazzling for your big day. The best part? We can often whiten and brighten your smile in less time than over-the-counter whiteners. And while whitening your smile may seem simple and harmless, it’s best to consult your Garden CIty dentist before you decide on the best solution for you.
Over-the-counter whitening kits may seem like the ideal solution to get your smile whiter. They’re often a cheaper option and you can whiten at home, in your car, or wherever you want. However, it’s important to know that whitening without a professional recommendation or supervision can lead to some unwanted side effects.
For example, in many over-the counter kits, the strips or mouth pieces can allow the bleaching solution to touch the gums or other tissue, which can cause irritation. Additionally, some products that you find at your local drugstore can lead to tooth pain if the formula is too strong. On the other end of the spectrum, the solution can be too mild to yield desired results.
An alternative is a professional whitening at our Garden City dental office. Whitening your smile with us is safer, as custom trays are used and protective measures are taken to avoid any gum irritation. A professional smile whitening also tends to last longer as opposed to an over-the-counter choice.
If you’re ready to whiten your smile this wedding season, give my office a call today! We’ll discuss your smile whitening goals and determine the best solution for you. If a professional whitening isn’t appropriate for your smile, don’t worry. We can still help you get the look you want by using porcelain veneers or tooth bonding. No matter what solution we decide on, you’re sure to get your smile wedding white!
