A whiter smile can improve the appearance of almost anyone, and many people would like to see a whiter smile in their own reflection. If you are one of those people, read on!

 

The most effective way to whiten teeth is to get it done at the dentist’s office. It is also the quickest way–in-office whitening typically takes about an hour. Our team can noticeably brighten your smile, removing stains and giving your smile the gleam you want.

 

At-home treatments are also effective, particularly if you want to touch up the initial work done in-office. It also allows you to brighten your smile over a longer period of time.

 

There are several over-the-counter options available to you, the three most popular being kinds of toothpaste, strips, and gels.

 

–Whitening toothpastes are especially effective if your smile only needs to stay its current color.

— Whitening strips or gels are useful to bring your smile a few shades lighter.

 

Be aware that over-the-counter products will take longer than whitening tools from your dentist. Additionally, some products sold as whiteners may be dangerous for tooth enamel. Look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance on any teeth whitening product you buy, to make sure you are getting a safe product that will whiten your smile without damaging it.
