Which one is best for you
You’ve always dreamed of those perfect pearly whites, flashing your smile to conquer the world. But those dreams are shattered every time you check your smile in the mirror only to see your teeth are even more yellow. There are a number of techniques to whiten your teeth ranging from DIY methods at home to professional dental services. But which one is best for you? Our expert at Smilekraft Dentistry, Dr. Priyank Mathur explains.
Whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes
The go-to method for most people sure comes with its fair share of pros and cons. While toothpastes and mouthwashes are easy to incorporate into your daily routine, the results may not be what you’re looking for.
DIY bleach strips
Over-the-counter bleach strips consist of a thin strip of material coated with a hydrogen peroxide based gel. While they are relatively cheaper than visiting a dentist, overlapping or turned teeth may end up with odd spots that weren’t treated. Or, you could have problems getting the strips to seal correctly.
Professional cleaning and whitening
After cleaning, the dentist uses bleaching trays similar to the over-the-counter versions that you can purchase. However, the main difference here is that trays at the dentist’s office will be customised for your unique dental needs and fitted to your mouth by the dentist, who will also monitor your teeth and gums for any irritation.
If perfect white teeth have always been your dream, perhaps it’s time for you to visit SmileKraft Dentistry and make that dream a reality!
