A lot of people wanted to have that bright, white smile just like their favorite Hollywood stars. They wanted to look good and at the same time feel good about themselves. Often times, people would equate having whiter teeth to being more attractive, younger and more successful.

There are many products available in the market which promises to give you that bright, white smile you have been dreaming of. There are teeth whitening products or treatments you can use in the comforts of your home while there are those that can be done only in-office. Among these options, you might ask how to whiten teeth faster? Well, you can achieve whiter teeth faster if you seek professional help.

In-office teeth whitening treatments are often performed with the assistance of your dentist. A high concentration of bleaching gel is placed on your teeth for an amount of time and is repeated for a number of cycles until the desired whitening result is achieved. Some in-office teeth whitening treatment uses blue light or laser light to speed up the whitening process. In between cycles of bleaching gel application, your teeth are checked if they have reached the desired result. In-office teeth whitening could whiten teeth 2-3 shades lighter and sometimes it can even reach up to 8 shades lighter.

If your desired whitening result is not achieved on your target time frame, your dentist may recommend for a follow up treatment or prescribe you with dental whitening trays to be used at home. The whitening effect this treatment offers is not permanent. Overtime, your teeth could acquire stains which would require you to undergo another in-office teeth whitening treatment.
