As a teen, we all want our smiles to be beautiful, but how do we easily achieve that goal without going through much trouble? Well, you can do so with teeth-whitening treatments! Most teeth-whitening treatments are harmless for your smile and painless. To help you pick the best treatment possible, our Ronald C. Fuhrmann, DDS, A division of Atlantic Dental Care team recommends the following treatments:

Over-the-counter whitening
When it comes to over-the-counter whitening, there are many options, like whitening gel, whitening trays, whitening kits, and whitening toothpaste. However, some treatments can harm your gums, so it’s very important to ask your dentist for advice on the best and safest treatment.

In-office whitening
Customized whitening trays and in-office whitening are the two treatments generally available. The customized whitening tray treatment involves your dentist making trays that fit perfectly over your teeth. This helps prevent messes. Then, he will give you the whitening solution and instructions you need to brighten your smile at home. The in-office treatment involves your dentist covering your teeth with a whitening solution and then activating the solution with a special light. You will repeat this process three times, which should make the total appointment time about 45 minutes.

If you are interested in talking to Dr. Ronald Fuhrmann about a treatment that is best for you and your chompers, we encourage you to call 757-716-7943 and schedule an appointment at your earliest convenience. We will be happy to meet with you, examine your smile, and give you the advice you need to succeed. We look forward to helping you!
