Teeth Whitening

If your teeth are stained a yellowish color, teeth whitening services are a way to remove the stains and achieve a more attractive smile. Most teeth whitening procedures are effective at removing stains due to the consumption of coffee, tea, and dark foods. There are many different types of teeth whitening procedures that can help you get the smile you desire.

Teeth Whitening Products

There are many over-the-counter whitening products that may help with minor stains. Your dentist can recommend a toothpaste or whitening rinse. The results achieved with these products are not dramatic. You may be able to use these products between in-office whitening treatments to maintain a bright smile.

At-home Teeth Whitening

If you would like to whiten your teeth at home, your dentist can give you a professional-grade kit. These kits can be used at your convenience and include customized trays that are designed to fit over your upper and lower teeth. The kits also include a bleaching gel that contains either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. Your dentist will provide you with detailed instructions on how to use the kit.

In-office Teeth Whitening

An in-office teeth whitening procedure takes one or two visits to whiten your teeth several shades for dramatic results. In the dentist’s office, a whitening solution is applied directly to your teeth and will sit on your teeth for 30 to 60 minutes. The bleach is activated with a special light. If your teeth were badly stained, you may need a few visits to achieve the best results. To maintain your whiter smile, you will need to follow your dentist’s recommendations about avoiding certain foods and drinks.
