This is a big moment for your son or daughter.
And if you are being honest, there may have been times you wondered if the day would ever come, but it’s here.
Your son is getting married.
Your daughter is graduating from college.
And there’s something you could do for both of them to make their big days even better. You could give them the gift of whiter teeth.
You know in your own life how a nice smile can lift someone’s spirits. Plus teeth whitening will last for a while after they’ve taken their wedding and graduation day photos.
If you live in or near Huntsville, AL, you can schedule a teeth whitening for someone you care about (or yourself) at the office of Jennifer Perkins, DDS. Just call 256-801-0002 today!
We know, teeth whitening may not jump to mind when you are thinking of graduation or wedding gift ideas. But think about it for a moment.
You know you will be taking lots of pictures — pictures that will be posted on social media that day and pictures your children will look back on many times over the years to relive those memories.
A bright, white smile will be the perfect complement to your son’s tuxedo or your daughter’s stylish outfit. Plus, these days are the beginning of a new chapter in each of their lives.
Your son will be starting a family of his own, and your daughter will be getting ready to venture out into the real world.
A whiter smile could give your son the confidence to apply for a promotion that could help him support his wife and your future grandchildren.
For your daughter, a brighter smile could help her feel more comfortable when she goes on a job interview to start her professional career. It may even help her relax when meeting her new co-workers after she lands her first full-time job.
But Why Professional Whitening?
We know you’ve seen the commercials for whitening toothpaste.
They would have you believe that using a different toothpaste for a few weeks can make a huge difference in the color of your smile. According to the American Dental Association Committee on Scientific Affairs, whitening toothpaste can remove some surface stains, but it won’t have much effect on the deeper stains on your teeth.
You also may be thinking you could get whitening strips or gels. You might be surprised to know that they use the same bleaching agents that are found in many professional whitening products.
The difference is that professional whitening products can seven times stronger than commercial products. As a result, professional whitening can go deeper and work faster. In fact, our whitening treatments have been able to make patients’ smile up to 16 shades whiter!
It’s sort of like the difference between using a garden hose and pressure washer to clean years of built-up dirt from the side of your house. Both can make your house cleaner, but one is going to do more in less time.
In-Office or At-Home Whitening?
If you come to Dr. Perkins for your whitening, you will have the option of doing a whitening treatment in our office or at home. Both have their advantages, and both can be equally effective when the treatment is finished.
In-office whitening will produce the fastest results. If time is a factor, then this is the option you will want to choose. Your son or daughter could a change in the color of his or her smile before he or she leaves our office.
With at-home whitening, your daughter or son can do her or his treatment at a time that is convenient for their schedule. We will make custom-fitted whitening trays for your child and in a matter of a few weeks, she or he should see noticeable changes in her or his smile.
Don’t Forget About Yourself
If you’ll be attending your child’s wedding or graduation, you’re going to be in a lot of pictures, too. Why not treat yourself to a whiter, brighter smile as well?
