Whether you are getting ready for school pictures, for a wedding, or for a 20-year high school reunion, it is important to keep your teeth picture perfect at all times! Many people are ashamed of their teeth, but you certainly don't have to be.

When it comes to whitening your teeth, anyone can buy over-the-counter whitening products that improve the flat surface of the tooth, but for more thorough results there are home whitening kits and laser bleaching. With whitening kits, patients wear custom-made trays filled with a carbamide peroxide gel every night for ten to fourteen days.

Dentists handle tooth sensitivity by adjusting the concentration of the gel solution. Results can be touched up when needed, usually every six to eight months, or before special events.

When you bleach teeth, old work may look dark. However, bleaching won't harm veneers or crowns but it won't bleach bonding either.

When scheduling cosmetic dentistry work, bleach first so you can match the work to the new color. Laser bleaching is an in-office procedure where different concentration of laser light helps activate the brushed-on bleaching solution.
