Teeth Whitening for a Brighter Smile
Your teeth can become less vibrant and discolored for several different reasons. The most obvious being poor dental hygiene. Certain foods, tobacco use, and ageing can stain your teeth as well. There are several ways to whiten your teeth both at home and at a dentist’s office for you to consider. You should always consult your dentist before trying any teeth whitening products to see what they recommend for you.
Different Teeth Whitening Options
As Mentioned, there are several ways to whiten your teeth. Whitening toothpastes are a very common over the counter method that does not use chemicals. They are not as effective as products that use chemicals and take several days to weeks to see results. At home tooth whiteners such as rinses or whitening strips use hydrogen peroxide. They will whiten your teeth more than the toothpaste and still can take several days and weeks to get the results you want. These whiteners can cause tooth sensitivity and some other side effects as well. In office whitening treatments are the fastest and most effective treatment. This can cause tooth sensitivity and other irritations similar to at home whiteners. Your dentist will be able to advise you on which option is best for you.
