Oral Health Care Fundamentals: Teeth Whitening Treatments

Posted .

If you ever wanted a brighter smile, modern dentistry offers numerous opportunities to whiten and brighten your teeth. Numerous over-the-counter products exist today to enhance your smile with whitening substances, including in mouthwash, toothpaste, and even chewing gum. However, the most effective form of whitening teeth treatment is teeth whitening systems.

Although teeth whitening treatment systems are highly effective, it is important to determine which form works best for you. Three main types to consider are in-office whitening treatments, at-home whitening treatments or over-the-counter whitening systems. Depending on your age and oral health habits, your dentist can help decide which teeth whitening system is best for you.

If you are looking for an in-office tooth whitening treatment, visit your dentist for a customized treatment that will contour to your dental profile to give you the tightest fit and the greatest chance of success. In-office treatments are often considered the most effective and safest forms of teeth whitening treatment available. If you are looking to use an over the counter teeth whitening system purchased from a store, it is important to speak with your dentist about product recommendations or suggestions beforehand to ensure you receive only those products that are deemed safe and effective for use.
