Goldilocks Loves Home Teeth Whitening Trays

Here’s a story to help you appreciate the benefits of Home Teeth Whitening Trays

Best Teeth Whitening Option - Home Teeth Whitening Trays Are home teeth whitening trays “just right” for you?

Remember Goldilocks and the Three Bears?

Goldilocks found that by sitting in each chair, sampling from each bowl of porridge, and lying down in each bed, she discovered that in each case, Baby Bear’s size and portion was “just right” for her.

As a Toronto Teeth Whitening Dentist, I’m like Goldilocks in that I find that of the 3  main choices for Teeth Whitening, one’s too hot, one’s too cold, and one’s just right.

Laser Whitening is too hot. It’s fast aggressive and that can create extra pain on top of the extra cost. Some people don’t mind the heat and want it extra fast.

They were certain it would be a flop and they didn’t counter it.

I asked that very same question when I first heard about Teeth Whitening. That was way back in the mid-90’s, when Teeth Whitening was in its infancy. I think it was called Smile Bleaching at the time.

As a Toronto Cosmetic Dentist, I was excited to see something come along that was so simple and could improve smiles for so many people. I was eager to find out for myself if Teeth Whitening really worked.

What is Destination Dentistry?

Basically, Destination Dentistry involves traveling to a location to undergo extensive Reconstructive or Cosmetic Dentistry. You may do some sightseeing along the way, but your trip is centered around your health care.

Is Destination Dentistry a bargain or nightmare? The Illusion of Destination Dentistry…

Cosmetic Dentistry can lend itself to that model of care. You can fly in and within a few days head back home with a new smile.

This concept of Destination Care isn’t new. The Cayman Islands were long considered a place to go for your Plastic Surgery. That way you could spend your recovery time away from the prying eyes of your neighbors and friends.

The surgical fees weren’t any lower in the Caymans. In fact, quite the opposite. You paid a premium for world-renowned doctors, and it was all about discretion. Go on a vacation to the Caribbean Islands and secretly have your surgery done. You would return home healed and refreshed and no one would be wiser.
