Which teeth whitening treatments are best for you? Teeth whitening treatments are often used to brighten a smile and remove any discoloration in your teeth. Teeth age over time, and products such as food, drink, and tobacco can all stain your teeth. Whitening treatments remove the stains and can restore your teeth’s natural shine.
The two main types of whitening agents include bleaching with peroxide, which can remove deep stains, or other chemical products or materials, which often can only remove surface stains. The safest and most effective treatments are those given by your dentist.
The three main types of teeth whitening treatments are professional cleanings administered by dentists, treatments given by dentists for at-home use, and over-the-counter products for sale in-store or online.
Some products can be hazardous to your health and can cause tooth sensitivity or bleach your gums. Some products can also cause gum irritation if the bleaching tray is improperly used or if it is an incorrect size. Consult with our dentists at J. Steve Morton, DDS before choosing a product to help learn which products are the safest and most effective for you.
