Having a bright smile builds your self-confidence wherever you go, and it impresses dates and future employers. Not all teeth whitening solutions are created equal, however. Here are some tips for Houston patients seeking professional or over-the-counter solutions.
They are usually offered for a low price at most grocery stores. You can usually acquire them instantly at the pharmacy counter or in the health and beauty aisle. The straight edges of commercial strips will whiten some spots but might not brighten all of your teeth.
In addition, they could cause irritation if you accidentally place a store-bought tooth whitening strip too close to your gum lines. It might serve a purpose if you have no other options, but they might not be your best choice because the results are usually temporary.
Dr. Monti Harpalani uses the KöR tooth whitening method. It provides a more permanent outcome than the ones you find over the counter. Stains are broken and lifted using an oxygen booster that brightens smiles without irritation. Initial treatment takes place in the office, and your dentist sets you up with at-home treatments that continue for about two weeks.
Your first dentist visit involves making impressions and customizing your bleaching trays. Only after that do you take the trays home and sleep with them on.
