Bring some Sunshine to your Smile this Summer
- Posted on: Aug 15 2017
Summer may be coming to a close in the next few weeks, but that does not mean that we are leaving behind the desire to enjoy time with family and friends. The weather will remain warm and invite for a bit longer, and, shortly after we notice the change of seasons, we will be heading straight for the holidays. We don’t even want to think about that yet! In all of the hoopla of the varying seasons, one thing remains true; we want to look our best at social gatherings and business events. With a winning smile, this is possible.
The problem with the brilliance of a smile is that it will change. There is no way around this. And because the loss of luster happens so gradually, we may easily forget about the necessity for a little extra TLC from time to time. If you’re not feeling drawn in by your smile when you look in the mirror, you’ve got all the evidence you need that it may be time for a refresher.
Teeth Whitening is a Personalized Process
Teeth whitening has become so commonplace that there is a widespread theory that this process can be achieved using a myriad of ingredients without a dentist’s supervision. We get it. It sounds easy to brush with a little lemon juice and baking soda. But if people knew this technique was tried hundreds of years ago with terrible results, they may think twice before taking their smile into their own hands.
If you want a radiant smile, and you want to get it in a safe, consistent manner, see your cosmetic dentist. We’re happy to schedule a visit for you in our Clyde office, where you can put your smile into the hands of one of North Carolina’s only accredited cosmetic dentists.
In-office teeth whitening is often presented as a once-and-done process that achieves desirable brightness in one visit (of course, touch-ups are needed every few years). This isn’t always the case, believing that a single office session will make over the smile could ultimately lead to disappointment. What we do is begin the teeth whitening process with an in-office pre-treatment that maximizes the absorption of oxygen and whitening solution, which is then applied at home on a daily basis for a week or two. In some cases, pre-treatment may not be necessary.
