Look your Best this Holiday Season with Teeth Whitening
Most of us can’t believe that it is already November which means Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s are upon us. Every year these holidays seem to come quicker and quicker. It’s time for delicious meals and holiday parties with friends and family. These occasions also bring the opportunity for pictures. It seems that everyone these days is snapping pics with their smartphones and posting them instantly on social media sites. Dr. Wells wants you to feel confident in those pics with a great smile.
Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. We all know that the holidays are the hardest time of the year to lose weight, so don’t worry about that, instead concentrate on making an impression with a dazzling smile.
If you are self-conscious about your smile, let Dr. Wells help brighten up your look. “I’ve seen lots of patients with yellowing or brown spots caused by smoking or drinking coffee and tea over the years. We can change that,” says Dr. Wells. South Charlotte Dentistry offers two types of teeth whitening procedures:
- ZOOM! Whitening: This is our preferred method. It is the fastest and most effective way to whiten teeth. The results are fast and dramatic. We use ZOOM! Proprietary UVA light to aid in the whitening process. We also use the ZOOM! whitening gel, which contains hydrogen peroxide. The gel and light work together to penetrate the outer layers of tooth enamel, breaking up stains and discolorations. The office visit takes about an hour. Some of our patients have achieved 6 to 10 shades whiter in a single visit!
- Whitening Trays: Some patients prefer whitening trays instead. They are less expensive than ZOOM! whitening, but take longer to achieve the same results. Dr. Wells will fit your teeth with vinyl trays. This is an important step because we want to make sure the gel will stay on your teeth, but also be comfortable. The gel contains carbamide peroxide (10-25% concentration) which reacts to the saliva in your mouth to become hydrogen peroxide. You wear the trays for 2 to 4 hours a day. It takes about three weeks to complete the process.
Thanksgiving is still weeks away so with either method, you can have a brighter smile before all the holiday photos! A white smile is a great way to look younger, feel more confident, and look great in pictures.
