These days it’s easy to be confused by the wide array of over-the-counter (OTC) products promising whiter teeth and a brighter, more youthful smile. Go to any drugstore and you’ll be confronted by a range of products and application methods—from toothpaste and mouth rinses to whitening strips—all promising to give you the smile you want at a low price. You can select one of those, or you might consider making an appointment with your family dentist and undergoing an in-office whitening procedure. No matter your selection we understand, “Teeth whitening is a process, not an event!” ™ remember once you choose OTC, or decide to visit a dentist, every glass of wine, every cup of coffee and every food you consume will slowly dull your teeth once again.
But how can you choose the option that’s best for you? To help you make a more informed choice, let’s take a look at each in more detail.
Most OTC whitening treatments are low in cost and will whiten teeth. What’s important to us at The Smile Box is the ability and the flexibility to whiten teeth daily from the comfort of your home. You should already be brushing your teeth twice a day and our whitening foam can be added to your toothpaste or can be used by itself.
Time and time again we hear that OTC teeth whitening products “make my teeth ache.” Our foam is specifically formulated and ideal for those with sensitive teeth because of our formula made for OTC and for sensitive teeth. We challenge you to try our Smile Box Foam.
If you want customized treatment and more abrasive results, in-office whitening procedures deliver. In a professional dental office, a dentist and their team has a variety of ways to whiten your teeth, using a myriad of different materials and most importantly they professionally protect your gums, tongue and lips because the whitening agents available to your dentist are higher in concentration than those found in OTC drugstore brands, so your results could be measurably better, even if you have severe dental staining. Also, you should be regularly visiting a dental professional as a great resource to offer counsel on all aspects of oral health and dental care, not just tooth-whitening.
The Smile Box combines the best of both approaches—first I, a seasoned dentist, developed our foam to fulfill a need for a whitening agent that is formulated specifically for those with sensitive teeth, and second, our foam can be incorporated into your already established home oral care routine. It can also be used as a great maintenance system for those of you that have previously whitened your teeth. Use our whitening foam alone or add to your favorite toothpaste—you’ll get great results on all your teeth, and at a cost far below that of repeat office visits.
And remember, “Teeth whitening is a process, not an event!” ™
