Quincy’s high school graduation is June 14th. Nearby universities and community colleges also have graduation ceremonies happening at roughly the same time. Whether you’re getting your diploma or you’re in the audience cheering, you’ll definitely want to have a bright, white smile for this special moment.
Now is the time to schedule an appointment with your Quincy cosmetic dentist to make sure you’ve got the best smile possible. Graduation is almost here, and you don’t have time to waste waiting for over-the-counter tooth whitening products to work. For speedy, effective treatment for teeth that are yellow, stained by smoking or coffee, or are otherwise discolored, you need to see your dentist.
Over the counter tooth whitening treatments promise a lot, but the truth is the amount of active ingredient in many of these products is so small as to be almost completely useless. When you see a cosmetic dentist, the tooth whitening product is painted on your teeth and stays in place for 30 minutes to 45 minutes depending on your needs. This product is highly concentrated and can only be administered by a dentist.
Another issue with over the counter whitening products is that they must be used far more than people ever imagine to be effective. Whitening mouthwashes needed to be used six to nine times a day, every day, for two to three minutes per time, for two to three months, for maximum impact. That’s up to half an hour a day, three and a half hours a week, seventeen hours a month – for a total of thirty four to forty one hours – to accomplish what your Quincy cosmetic dentist can do better, with far less risk of irritating your gums or aggravating any underlying dental health condition you may have. Have a great smile for graduation & all those pictures! Schedule your appointment with your Quincy dentist today!
