Are you familiar with the different types of teeth whitening treatments that are available? Along with various whitening or several cleaning products you may select, your dentist can use specialized whitening trays and systems to improve the look and shade of your teeth. Speak with your dentist about the various teeth whitening products on the market and their potential effect on your oral health.

Although teeth whitening ingredients are in products such as chewing gum, mouthwash, toothpaste and even dental floss, along with store-bought kits, the truth is that the most effective way to whitening your teeth is through a whitening treatment from your dentist.

If you use a store-bought whitening system improperly, you risk damaging your teeth and gums. Instead, visit your dentist for a professional in-office cleaning. In as little as a single treatment, it may be possible to break up the deep stains and discoloration in your tooth enamel and enhance the color of your smile by up to ten shades. For additional help with keeping your teeth safe long after your office visit, your dentist can provide you with an at-home treatment kit.
