New Year, New Smile

SPONSORED

I hope that you had wonderful holidays and enjoyed a wonderful New Year’s Eve. 

The exciting part of starting the New Year, for me, is planning what I want to accomplish in the year.  Changing your smile maybe on that list. 

What do you want to do?  The answer I have heard most is “I do not know I just want it whiter or brighter.” 

Let us begin with some simple questions.  Do you like the color of your teeth? And then what color would you like?  What is the color of your teeth now?  To be able to whiten or brighten your teeth, the easier starting color is brownish or yellowish but if your teeth are more grayish or has horizontal bands of gray, yellow and browns this becomes more difficult to whiten.  If you want the color to just be a little lighter than the answer is you should try over the counter white strips.  This is the most cost effective way of whitening your teeth just to brighten them up a little. 

I have found that there are two outcomes; one is that the individual is happy with the outcome or two, their find out that they really want whiter teeth.  This leads to the other options. 

First we have custom trays.  Custom trays are great for someone looking for whiter teeth or they want whiter teeth but they have crooked and overlapped teeth where the over the counter white strips are difficult to use. 

Another option is in-office whitening system.   This is a great option for someone that wants to get their teeth whiter quick.  In just about 90 minutes we are able to whiten someone’s teeth up to 8 shades lighter.
