Has your smile yellowed with time? Yellow teeth are incredibly common, but they are not something you have to simply put up with. In fact, having your smile professionally whitened is now easier and more effective than ever before. In-office whitening uses powerful formulas and is sometimes assisted by specialty lights and tools to ensure that you get the results you want in a flash. Depending on the method you choose, you might be able to walk out of our office with a whiter smile in a matter of just a couple hours.
For more severely yellowed smiles, you may be asked back for a follow-up visit where the whitening procedure will be completed. If you are curious to know how many visits it may take to restore your smile to a whiter shade, don’t hesitate to reach out to your dentist and ask.
In general, most people can achieve a whiter smile in just a single visit. Before the whitening procedure, you’ll be presented with a range of options and asked about how white of a smile you are trying to achieve. If you would like to know the difference between whitening and bleaching, whitening is able to take your teeth back to their whitest natural shade while bleaching is able to get them even whiter than that. Bleaching is necessary for people whose dentine may be naturally more yellow than average. Ask your dentist about what option might be right for you.
