2 Ways To Get Whiter Teeth

Posted on

If you are getting ready to get married, there are a lot of things that you do so that your pictures look good. You make sure that your wardrobe is on point and your makeup, if you are wearing it, is sharp, elegant, and perfect. You make sure that you have spent time on your hair so that not a hair is out of place and it flatters you. But, if you have discolored teeth, you may feel like you have wasted all that work and don't like the way that you look. However, there are things that you can do that will help you get the white teeth that you are looking for. 

Whitening Toothpaste/Strips

One of the things that you can do is to use whitening toothpaste and/or strips. These are things that you can buy in the store and use. You can use the toothpaste daily, while the strips generally have different directions. These products won't whiten severe discoloration, but if your teeth have some slight discoloration, then you may see a brighter smile coming from using these products. They can also make great maintenance products. If you visit your dentist to get your teeth professionally whitened, you can use a toothpaste or strip to help maintain your white smile. Just don't expect overnight results if you use these products. You are going to need to use them for a few weeks prior to your big day to get some results from them. 

Professional Teeth Whitening

The best way to get your teeth whitened is to go to your dentist. You are much more likely to get the results that you are looking for. The dentist will be able to work with teeth that are more stained and discolored and get your teeth up to the level that you are looking for. Before you do anything, your dentist will ask you how white you are looking for your teeth to be and then help you come up with the best way for you to get to the result. There are different things that your dentist can do, and they may use a combination of things. One thing that your dentist can do is to use a UV bleaching system. They put a special bleaching gel on your teeth and then shine a UV light on your teeth. This will target the stains and discoloration and lighten them up. Your dentist may send you home with a bleaching tray and special gel for you to use at home to help the treatments work better. 

If you are getting married, you want for everything to be perfect. You want your pictures to look beautiful. If your teeth are discolored, you probably want to fix that problem.
