It seems like the trend in Hollywood is to get a teeth whitening that is so white, it blinds you. Not all teeth are shaped the same, so why should they all be the same color? Of course, we all want white, healthy-looking teeth, but sometimes the whitest white isn’t the best fit. Picking a shade more tailored to your skin tone and previous tone will give you the most natural look.
Here in the office, we have a shade guide to give you the best match for your teeth whitening, but here are some other things to bear in mind:
- Stains on your teeth. Stains can be harder to remove if they are dark or gray. Yellow or brown are easier to get rid of. White stains can be blended in with your new shade.
- Crowns and fillings can’t be lightened. It’s best to get these white to begin with, but they might not match the new shade.
- Don’t go whiter than the whites of your eyes.
And don’t worry, we can’t make your teeth glow in the dark. 🙂
