The Finer Details of Teeth Whitening Treatments

Posted .

Are you aware that there are specific procedures available that are designed not to improve your oral health but rather to specifically improve the look and color of your teeth? With teeth whitening treatments, you can enhance the aesthetic color of your smile much quicker and better than normal oral health care habits ever could.

There are three prevalent types of teeth whitening treatment, at-home whitening systems given by your dentist, over-the-counter and store-bought whitening systems, and professional teeth whitening systems. Each service offers its own pros and cons.

At-home whitening systems are implemented directly at home via kits given by your dentist. These are often tremendously effective at providing touch ups and hitting problematic areas that are newly stained or discolored. At-home kits given by your dentist for at-home use are considered safe for use and more reliable than store-bought versions.

Even though store-bought versions can be useful, they remain unregulated and can potentially lead to bleached gums and weakened tooth enamel. Always speak with your dentist before using any over-the-counter product purchased from a store or online.

The best and highest-rated form of tooth whitening system are those professional systems directly applied by your dentist in the office. With a single professional whitening treatment, it is possible to improve the color of your teeth by up to ten shades your very first visit. Furthermore, the products used are guaranteed to be safe for your smile, and effective.

No matter which teeth whitening service you choose, the real importance is the oral health benefits it can provide.
