Are you looking to improve your smile this holiday season? Hopefully, the answer is yes, because as a society we value clean and strong teeth. Typically, we view healthy teeth as white teeth. The whiter your teeth are, the more attractive and the greater chance of success for your personal, work, social, and love life you’re often thought to obtain.

Often considered the pinnacle of teeth whitening treatments, in-office professional whitening treatments done by your dentist are highly effective and extremely safe. Dental trays are customized to your exact dental profile to ensure you get the best possible care with the lowest possible risk. When using alternative products such as over-the-counter treatments, you run the risk of bleaching your gums or damaging your tooth enamel. In addition, the product may not even work at all. Plus, if you do decide to use an alternative tooth whitening treatment such as those purchased from a store, always speak with your dentist first to make sure it is safe and effective.

Even if you have an extremely healthy set of chompers, teeth can lose their shine and color naturally over time. This is because teeth age along with our bodies, and numerous foods and drinks you consume can easily stain them. In addition, unhealthy habits such as smoking or chewing tobacco as well as poor oral hygiene habits can lead to tooth discoloration. Illnesses and various medications can also contribute to less than optimal tooth color.
