The best teeth whitening in Azusa
How would you describe your smile? If the answer is anything other than dazzling, it could be time to think about teeth whitening. It is safe and affordable, and with at home whitening trays from Dr. Luu, it is a convenient way for residents of Azusa to improve their smiles.
With the variety of over the counter whitening products available, it is likely that you have tried at least one, and were not satisfied with the results. Whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes may work to help keep white teeth white but they are not effective when it comes to restoring teeth that are deeply discolored. Whitening strips do not cover all of your teeth, just the most visible portion of your smile. The whitening trays available over the counter are very different from what you will get from Dr. Luu.
Over the counter VS professional whitening trays
As is the case with most things that can be gotten at the store or from a professional, the store option is not as strong. Most of the whitening kits you can buy in the store are about ten percent hydrogen peroxide, about a third the strength of that which comes with the professional whitening trays such as those from Dr. Luu
The trays are another issue. The ones in the commercial kits are a one size fits all, in addition to being potentially uncomfortable; they will not have a tight fit. The trays you get from Dr. Luu are created in the office from a mold of your teeth so you know you will get trays that fit properly. The fit of the trays is important, not just for comfort, but also to keep your saliva from mixing with the whitening gel and neutralizing it. With whitening trays from Dr. Luu, you can get dramatic results wearing them for half an hour to an hour every day for about two weeks.
Getting and maintaining the best results
The best time to whiten your teeth is after they have been cleaned. This prevents any plaque or tartar build up from interfering with the whitening process. Maintaining the results requires good oral hygiene and avoiding things that will stain your teeth such as tea, coffee, soft drinks, or berries.
Whitening your teeth can give your self-confidence a boost and give you a terrific reason to smile. Call Dr. Luu today to schedule an appointment.
