Whitening 101

Posted .

It’s natural to want a beautiful, sparkling smile. A great smile leads to great confidence, and that in turn can spill over to success in both your professional and personal life. The problem is that keeping a smile brilliantly white isn’t that easy. In fact, it’s one of the more difficult things we try to do with teeth.

Luckily, there are a lot of different options available for you to whiten your teeth. Today, we’ll look at just a few of them.

At-home whitening
You’ve seen the ads on TV, and the products are your local supermarket. At-home whitening kits are incredibly popular, and you may even have a Dr. Taylor recommend one to you.

However, if your smile still isn’t showing the desired luster after use of an at-home kit, then it’s time to get serious.

Professional whitening
If you ask Dr. Laura Olsen Taylor for professional whitening services, be ready to be amazed. In-office whitening techniques are more powerful than anything you can buy at the store. The reason is that a dentist’s office has access to products that aren’t sold over-the-counter, and they’re more effective at whitening than something you buy from the supermarket.

Additional solutions
If you discuss whitening with our team here at Olsen Taylor General Dentistry in Mooresville, North Carolina, you may find other options that work better. Veneers and crowns are two popular options. In the end, you’ll work with us closely before we determine which route to go down. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible with the new white teeth you’ll have.
