What’s the Best Way to Whiten Your Teeth?

dca-blog_teeth-whitening-two-women-pointing

Everyone wants their smile to leave a great first impression, and a bright, white smile is the aesthetic ideal. Unfortunately, your teeth are vulnerable to discoloration, and almost everyone experiences some color changes over time. Age is to blame for many cases of yellow or brown teeth. Other culprits include popular foods and beverages like coffee, tea, wine and berries; these can leave stubborn stains. If you want to whiten your teeth, you have two options; you can buy over-the-counter products and do it at home, or you can visit your dentist for professional teeth whitening treatments.

Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening Products

Over-the-counter teeth whitening options for use at home include whitening rinses and toothpastes, gel strips and whitening trays. Rinses and toothpastes work gradually and only expose your teeth to a small amount of bleach. Gel strips and whitening tray systems work faster, but require more application time.

Professional Teeth Whitening Techniques

In-office whitening systems typically involve fitting custom-made trays over your teeth and leaving them for specified lengths of time. Some systems use a light source to enhance results. The entire process usually takes place in the dentist’s office, but professional whitening trays can also be adapted for home use.

If you have healthy teeth and gums, at-home treatments may be a convenient and appealing choice. They’re easy to use and relatively inexpensive. If you have problems with tooth sensitivity, professional treatment may be the better option. Your dentist can manage sensitivity symptoms and make the whitening process more comfortable. You’ll also get faster and more dramatic results with professional teeth bleaching whitening agents.  Some people shouldn’t use whitening treatments. These include pregnant women and people with gum disease or untreated tooth decay.

Talk to your dentist in Mount Dora about your teeth whitening options to find out what’s best for you.
