Summer months are fast approaching, which means there’s going to be a flurry of social activities to look forward to. Weddings, graduations, get-togethers, family reunions, you name it - all of them are on the cards.
Since you are going to be smiling a whole lot more, it makes perfect sense to whiten your teeth. However, at-home methods like whitening toothpaste, rinses, or activated charcoal may not yield the results you want.
Instead, spend your money on treatments and tools that actually work. Choosing the best method for summer teeth whitening depends on your budget and availability. You may also need professional intervention if your teeth are heavily stained or discolored.
Here are a few options that could help you achieve those pearly whites for that perfect selfie or family photo..
These strips can be purchased at any CVS or Walgreens near you. They have hydrogen peroxide in them, which is the primary chemical that provides that whitening effect for your teeth. Apply the strips on your teeth for one to two hours a day for up to two weeks, and you’re good to go.
Whitening gels and trays are another option that can provide results within a few weeks. Like in the case of strips, you need to use the gels or trays for at least one hour to a maximum of four hours. Make sure you read the package for instructions and other details. Use this for the specified period, and your white teeth will appear within two weeks.
One of the most effective and quickest ways of having your teeth whitened is to get it done by your dentist. Dentists use a high-strength hydrogen peroxide solution that can whiten your teeth in just over an hour.
Lasers have become a versatile tool in dental work and an especially effective option for teeth whitening.. You can have your teeth whitened within half an hour with this procedure. However, not all dental clinics offer this process. Laser teeth whitening is also on the expensive side, but it provides the quickest of results of out of all the options.
Since summer only arrives once a year,, it makes sense to invest in brightening your smile.
