Teeth Whitening – For a Beautiful White Smile

There are many different methods available today to achieve a whiter and brighter
smile.  You have many home-based teeth whitening products but for the best
results, a visit to your dentist is highly recommended.

Teeth whitening options are designed for individuals who have healthy teeth and
gums. You should avoid home-based teeth whitening products if you have sensitive
teeth, gum disease, or exposed roots.

Common Teeth Whitening Options

•        Whitening toothpastes
•        Over-the-counter bleaching strips and gels
•        Dentist-supervised whitening systems

It's a good idea for everyone to use whitening toothpaste not only to clean their
teeth, but as a first-line of defense against bacteria and enamel erosion. Whitening
toothpastes can also provide essential fluoride treatments to give you longer
lasting protection against corrosion and discoloration. Whitening toothpastes are a
common home-based teeth whitening product, but they are not as effective as
whitening procedures performed in a dentist's office.

Over-the-counter bleaching strips and gels contain peroxide-based ingredients that
whiten the teeth and reduce the appearance of stains. Gels are either applied with
a small brush directly onto the teeth or through strips applied twice a day for a few
weeks. They are more effective than whitening toothpastes but not as effective as in-
office whitening procedures.

For the best and fastest teeth whitening option, a visit to your dentist is
recommended. The dental in-office whitening process is designed to whiten and
brighten tough stained and discolored teeth. The process uses higher
concentrations of hydrogen peroxide than that available in over-the-counter
products and sometimes the use of a special light to activate the chemical applied
to the  teeth to achieve quicker that coveted Hollywood smile.

Painless, fast, and stunning results: It’s the best option if you want a brighter whiter

Who Benefits from Teeth Whitening Procedures?

Anyone embarrassed by stained or yellowed teeth will benefit from whitening
procedures. Coffee drinkers, smokers, and individuals prone to dull and yellow
colored teeth are the best candidates for these procedures.
