At-Home and Professional Teeth Whitening Products for Brighter Smiles

dca-blog_teeth-whitening-two-women-pointing

If you want whiter teeth, there are two ways to achieve your goal. Over-the-counter teeth whiteners are available in most retail stores and are easy to use at home. For more dramatic results, you can see your dentist for professional teeth bleaching/whitening treatments. Both use peroxide-based agents, but professional whitening systems contain a much higher percentage of bleach. The longer a whitening treatment is left on your teeth, the whiter they will become, but leaving a product on too long can dehydrate your teeth, and increase tooth sensitivity and discomfort. Teeth bleaching/whitening products are not for everyone. Those with sensitive teeth may find them uncomfortable. Home kits can cause burned or bleached gums if not used correctly. If your teeth are brown, gray, or purple, bleaching may not work.

The following types of teeth whitening treatments are widely available, but before you buy, ask your dentist in Quail Meadows which ones are right for you.

Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening Products

  • Teeth whitening toothpastes use mild abrasives, chemicals, and polishing agents to gradually lighten tooth stains without bleach.
  • Coated strips and brush-on whitening gels are applied directly to your teeth once or twice daily for about two weeks. Results last for up to four months.
  • Over-the-counter tray-based systems use a small tray shaped like a mouth guard to expose teeth directly to a peroxide bleaching gel or paste. The trays are generally left in place for several hours a day for up to a month. Professional-grade tray systems are also available from your dentist.

Professional Teeth Whitening Treatments

To get whiter teeth the fastest way, visit your dentist in Quail Meadows for professional whitening treatments. The bleaching solutions used in professional whitening systems are much more potent than those contained in over-the-counter treatments. Some systems also use light or heat to enhance or speed results. For the most dramatic results, you will probably need several hour-long office visits, but some systems are designed to provide maximum results within a single two-hour visit.

Talk to your dentist in Quail Meadows to determine which whitening options will work best for your teeth. To keep your teeth looking whiter after treatment, practice excellent oral hygiene, and avoid over-consumption of black teas, coffee, wine, berries, and carbonated sodas.
