A smiling man. Are you ready to take 2018 by storm? You might be surprised at the confidence a whiter, brighter smile can give you to help you achieve your goals. Whitening your teeth is a cost effective way to give your smile an upgrade, and the best part is you’ll see results right away! Here are your options for teeth whitening in Fremont.

Why Choose Professional Whitening?

With so many whitening products available at your local drug store, you might wonder what the benefits are to choosing professional whitening? While over-the-counter systems are less expensive, here are some things you should consider:

  • Less strength is less effective. Your dentist provides a higher strength whitening gel compared to those you can purchase. This means less time whitening to achieve your desired results.
  • One-size-fits-all may not meet your needs. Most generic whitening systems are not custom fit, which means they could be ill-fitting and may not get you the results you are hoping for.
  • Safety first. It’s much safer to whiten your teeth under the supervision of your dentist in case you should encounter any issues with sensitivity.

In-Office Whitening Treatments

Your dentist offers an in-office whitening treatment that can deliver results in less than an hour! You’ll have a protective barrier placed to ensure there’s no contact with any excess whitening gel, and then a high strength whitening gel is applied and activated with a special light.

In-office whitening is ideal for the patient seeking immediate results. It can deliver teeth that are 6 to 10 shades lighter in one quick visit.

Take-Home Whitening

This option is great for patients who would like to whiten their teeth based on their own schedule, and update whenever they like. You’ll have custom fitting trays to take home that are created with impressions taken of your teeth. You’ll receive training on properly applying the whitening gel to your trays, and you’ll be able to purchase additional whitening gel from your dentist as needed.

It’s recommended for most patients to whiten for about two weeks initially in order to achieve their desired results. After that, you’ll have your trays ready to give your smile a boost whenever you feel it’s necessary.

Make 2018 your year with a whiter, brighter smile! Contact your dentist today for more information on teeth whitening.
