Thinking about teeth whitening, but not entirely sure what it entails? We've got your back. If you are amongst the many people that would love to have a whiter smile, we have good news—Soothing Dental is offering 25% off teeth whitening for 7x7 readers. Here's everything you need to know about the process and how to select which method is the best fit for you.

Choosing a Method for Whitening

  • Drugstore brands that you can use at home whiten your teeth very slightly. In some cases, it may not even be noticeable. Go with this option if you're not looking for major impact.
  • Professional whitening solutions done in a dental office allow you to choose exactly how white you want your teeth to be. The secret? The strength of the product the dentist uses. Popular brands include Philips Zoom (AKA laser whitening) and Kor.
  • Some people get sensitivity from whitening that can carry on a few days after. If you have sensitive teeth, Kor is the better option as it tends to create less sensitivity than other products. A whitening gel, it has been recognize as one of the most effective systems; though may take a bit longer than laser whitening (Zoom).
Post Whitening Care

After a whitening session, try to avoid drinking any colored liquids like wine, coffee or tea for at least 24 hours as it can change the color of your teeth. If you just can't get away from a caffeine fix and are an avid coffee drinker, you may want to rinse after sipping your cup of joe to reduce its impact on your teeth. Another option is to whiten your teeth more frequently to counter the effects.
