The Basics of Teeth Whitening

Posted .

When looking for safe and effective whitening treatments, it is always best to speak with your dentist first. Due to the overwhelming popularity of teeth whiteners in today’s society, there is an onslaught of products that have flooded the market, with some being ineffective, and some being potentially dangerous.

The real dangers of store-bought whiteners include the danger that the ingredients used in the product may not be effective or could potentially bleach your gums or damage your tooth enamel. Before using any product, speak with your dentist to ensure it is safe.

For the best teeth whitening, professional teeth whiteners can be done directly by your dentist at our office. The gel trays are custom fitted for maximum results. Not only are the ingredients safe, but the end result is a shade of white teeth much better than other varieties, and potentially more effective than months of using standard products. For supplemental whitening, at-home kits can be given by your dentist for minor touchups later on.
