The Basics of Teeth Whitening for a Beautiful Smile

Posted .

Are you considering your teeth whitening options to brighten your smile? We invite you to speak with our experienced and friendly dentist to receive custom guidelines on which teeth whitening treatments can help you achieve your smile goals in a way that meets your personal preferences. We offer a few general guidelines below to help you learn more about teeth whitening treatment prior to your procedure.

When choosing your teeth whitening agent, your two main choices are mild chemical products for surface stains and peroxide bleaching for deep stains. Depending on which type of discoloration and dental stains you wish to address, the products and procedures that may be most effective for your smile are:

– Professional teeth cleanings performed by our dental team
– Over-the-counter teeth whitening products purchased at the store or online (we encourage you to refer to your dentist for approval on these products)
– Professional teeth whitening treatment performed at the dental office

Keep in mind that it’s important to select over-the-counter products carefully, as some may cause you to experience discomfort when used incorrectly or because they are of a poor quality. These discomforts can include tooth sensitivity, bleached gums and gum irritation, and you should contact the dental office if you experience any of these following a whitening treatment.
