When you meet someone for the first time, what do you notice almost immediately? If you answered “their smile,” then you’re just like the vast majority of people in this world. Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you when meeting for the first time, and whether that’s good or bad depends on how much effort you put into keeping your smile look great.

One of the best ways to do that is with teeth whitening.

At-home whitening
This is a method of teeth whitening that’s exploding in popularity of late. With how abundant the options are for at-home whitening, it’s easy to think that picking up a package of whitening strips along with the groceries is all you need to do to get your smile shining again.

While at-home whitening certainly has its place, it takes longer to be as effective as one session of professional whitening here at Summit Village Dental in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. Our team recommends using at-home whitening products to preserve your smile after it’s been whitened professionally.

Professional whitening
While it may seem hard to find the time for a whitening appointment, once you have your teeth whitened professionally, you’ll never go back. It’s an effective, quick, and powerful method that’s only attainable from a professional. In-office whitening is excellent because Dr. Jaclyn Turnbow has access to whitening products which are far more powerful than anything you can buy at the store.

If you’re ready to make your smile incredible, or to help it regain its lost luster, call 816-287-5650 today to schedule a professional whitening appointment.
