With the smorgasbord of food that awaits you at the end of the month, it may be a good idea to look into teeth-whitening treatments. Although teeth-whitening systems will not have the effect brushing and flossing will have on your oral health, they are the best options for the brightest natural smiles. If you are planning on meeting with friends and family this year, you may want to get a quick whitening treatment for the occasion. There are a few options to choose from for whitening your teeth.

There are three types of teeth whitening systems available: by dentists done in-office, by dentists for at-home use, and over the counter. With a safe, effective tooth-whitening treatment, your result could last for over a year.

In-office whitening is the safest and most effective. You can have your teeth whitened up to 10 shades. In addition, your gums are protected from the materials in the treatment. In many of the best whitening systems, there is a special feature that can actively protect tooth enamel from damage.  The whitening trays are also custom fitted to your teeth, resulting in a much cleaner, tighter, whiter, and brighter result.

Our dentist may also recommend specific teeth whitening products for at home use.

Over-the-counter whitening systems can be hit-or-miss. Many of the products can be dangerous to your teeth and gums, and some have shown to not even work at all.  Before using any over-the-counter teeth whitening kits, please consult your dentist.

Always remember to properly care for your teeth and gums. If you experience any tooth discomfort or tooth sensitivity with any product, be sure to consult your dentist.
