On special occasions, it’s not just your skin or your hair that needs to be perfect. Your smile has to be as captivating as your looks. Imagine attending your own wedding with coffee stained teeth. Not so memorable, right? And according to a study done by the Max Planck Institute in Germany, a shiny white set of teeth can lead to increased confidence, appearance of youthfulness and an overall positive attitude. You can change your entire outlook just with the simple action of smiling.

Whitening your teeth

The best and easiest way to improve your smile is to bleach your teeth. And with the help of new innovations at Belmont Dental Care in Scottsdale, AZ, you can choose from a wide array of teeth whitening procedures that fit your needs and your budget.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

If you’re in a hurry to get your pearly whites, well, pearly white, then your best bet is to visit your dentist such as Dr. Mark J. Fleming of Belmont Dental Care in Scottsdale, AZ, for a professional teeth whitening procedure. While you may have to shell out more for an in-house procedure, you’ll be able to get that highly-coveted white smile within a short period of time.

But don’t make the mistake of thinking you can use your dentist’s teeth whitening formulations by yourself at home. These professional teeth whitening kits contain higher levels of hydrogen peroxide, the active ingredient in these formulations. The amount of hydrogen peroxide could be anywhere from 15 to 35 per cent, while the do-it-yourself kits you purchase in drug stores contain only 3 to 10 per cent hydrogen peroxide.

At the beginning of the procedure, your dentist will apply a whitening gel, which will prime your teeth in preparation for the entire bleaching process. Your dentist might use laser technology in order to induce a deeper whitening effect.

DIY Whitening

If you don’t have the time to get to Belmont Dental Care of Scottsdale, AZ, or your pockets aren’t deep enough for a professional whitening procedure, you can head to your local drugstore and pick out any of the over-the-counter bleaching sets. You will have to apply these products for a couple of days before you can see noticeable effects. Whitening strips also help to remove any deep-set stains which have developed either as a consequence of plaque or through long-term exposure to foods and drinks that are known to stain teeth. Whitening toothpastes are also helpful but their action is only limited to the surface of teeth.
