Everyone wants a brighter and more radiant smile. There are many products out that can help enhance your smile, however, choosing the right product for you can be difficult. Talking with your dentist about what is best for you and discussing the differences between in-office whitening and at home whitening is the best way to get all of the information you need.
- Tray Whitening- Tray bleaching is a form of professional whitening done at home that can only be provided to you by your dentist. You will be provided with a whitening gel and a tray that fits perfectly over your teeth. This process normally takes ten to fourteen days, but many have seen results before the first week.
- Paint-On Teeth Whiteners- This form of teeth whitening is an over the counter product. They are generally less expensive but also less effective compared to whitening strips or professional options. A gel is included in the kit along with a small brush used to paint the gel onto the surface of your teeth. The gel hardens onto your teeth and will dissolve in your mouth.
- Teeth Whitening Strips- Whitening strips are a regimen of thin, flexible strips coated on one side with hydrogen peroxide. These kits generally come with two types of strips, for your upper and lower teeth. They are applied to the front of your teeth and put pressure to ensure contact. These strips are worn for 30 minutes when used but the treatment can vary.
- Whitening Toothpaste and Mouthwash- This is the least expensive way of whitening your teeth. These are designed to whiten the surface stains, so unlike professional whitening, these products will not change the tint of your teeth.
