If you have scheduled a tooth whitening procedure you are one of millions of patients to undergo this procedure in the United States each year. The desire to have a bright, white and attractive smile has led to tooth whitening becoming the most popular elective dental treatment in the world. Professional teeth whitening is performed in the comfort of your dentist’s offices and uses a higher grade of bleaching agent than is possible to purchase over the counter. Combined with careful, precision application by a trained professional, it is easy to see why in-office whitening produces the most consistent and long-lasting results.
Dental alignment problems are extremely common and one of the leading reasons why patients dislike their smile. A combination of genetics, jaw size and the way in which our adult teeth erupt individually means that it is far from normal to have perfectly straight teeth that come together with precision when we close our mouths. Unless you are one of those lucky few people that have naturally straight and aligned teeth, you probably find that you have one or more of the following issues with your teeth: overlapping, crookedness, gaps between teeth and teeth that don’t come together properly when you close your mouth.
