Saving Your Smile: Teeth Whitening Treatments

Posted .

Would you like to enhance your smile by brightening and whitening your smile? Most of us do, so it could be beneficial to look at your different teeth whitening treatment options. Although there are numerous products that now tout tooth whitening benefits including mouthwash, toothpaste, and even chewing gum, your best options for whitening your smile remain teeth whitening treatment systems. A few options are found below:

– Perhaps the most effective way to whiten your teeth is through a professional in-office whitening treatment. In-office whitening treatment we use is the LumiBrite® Light which can whiten your smile up to 12 shades lighter in an hour.

– Due to the effectiveness of in-office treatments, they do not need to be applied constantly. As an alternative, your dentist can provide you with at-home whitening treatment kits to help provide touch-ups and adjustments to your teeth as needed.

– Over-the-counter whitening products exist everywhere. Whitening trays that can be purchased over the counter are often unreliable and can potentially bleach and destroy your tooth enamel if used incorrectly. You should speak with your dentist before using any over-the-counter whitening products.
