An Enlightening Look at the Best Teeth Whitening Options

dca-blog_teeth-whitening-tooth-comparison

With so many ways to whiten your teeth today, you may be uncertain of the best teeth whitening method for you. Use this helpful guide to find the best way to brighten your smile.

Whitening Toothpastes – These toothpastes remove dark stains with mild polishing or chemical agents, rather than the stronger bleaches contained in most whiteners. While whitening toothpastes can lighten the teeth’s color by close to one shade, the best teeth whitening systems available in dentist’s offices can make teeth from three to eight shades whiter.

Whitening Rinses – These newer options are basically powerful mouthwashes that include whitening ingredients to lighten teeth while improving breath and reducing plaque. These inexpensive rinses are very convenient since they’re simply swished in the mouth for a minute twice a day, but this limited contact with teeth means that results can take three months to appear, making this far from the best teeth whitening method.

Over-the-Counter Strips and Gels – Whitening strips are hardly visible strips covered with a peroxide-based bleaching gel. They are worn on the teeth for one hour each day over two weeks. You should start seeing results after a few days, with the final whitening lasting for four months.

Tray-Based Teeth Whiteners – Tray-based systems are another at-home option that are available either over-the-counter or directly from your dentist. They require placing a peroxide-bleaching gel and then wearing that tray over teeth for a few hours each day or overnight. Results typically take four weeks or longer to appear.

Professional In-Office Whitening – Dentists deem this to be the best teeth whitening method today because it’s simply the quickest way to whiten teeth. For the procedure, a powerful whitening agent is applied on the teeth and activated by either a strong light, high heat, or a laser. Results are visible after a single 30- to 60-minute session, but dramatic whitening requires a few treatments. It my be the most expensive option, but it experts consider it the best teeth whitening method today.
