Why do I need to brighten my teeth?

Statistics reveal that Americans place a high value on their smile. According to an American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry® national survey:

  • Virtually all adults (99.7%) believe a smile is an important social asset.
  • 96% of adults believe an attractive smile makes a person more appealing to members of the opposite sex.
  • Three-quarters (74%) of adults feel an unattractive smile can hurt a person’s chances for career success.
  • And when respondents were asked, “What would you most like to improve about your smile?” The most common response was: Whiter & Brighter Teeth

At-home Dentist-supervised Whitening:

  • The patient wears a custom-fitted mouth tray containing a whitening gel for a few hours each day or night.
  • The trays can be adjusted to lighten individual teeth.
  • The average patient will wear mouth trays one to two weeks. More severe stains can often be improved with extended use of a home whitening system.

 

At-home Teeth Whitening Strips:

Most over-the-counter products, many inexpensive, are not regulated by the FDA or reviewed by the American Dental Association. Crest White Strips, over the counter or Professional Strength from a dental office are safe, effective and economical. Whitening strips only whiten the upper and lower six anterior/front teeth and not the complete dental arch.
