Have you ever wanted your teeth as white as snow, but no amount of brushing or flossing could achieve it? Most of the time, even the very best of dental hygiene habits are not enough for us to overcome our own natural colors of our teeth to get the shine we truly desire. However, thanks to fantastic advances in the teeth whitening treatments, your whiter smile is easier to attain than ever before.

Below is a list of common teeth whitening treatments:

In-Office Teeth Whitening Treatments: In-office teeth whitening consists of getting professional whitening treatments done by your dentist. It is considered the safest and most effective treatment. In as little as one visit, your teeth can be whitened by up to ten shades. Additionally, your gums are at a much lower risk of damage as many in-office gels include gum protecting ingredients. The whitening trays have the greatest holds and can be custom-designed for your teeth.

Dentist-Provided Teeth Whitening Treatments for At-Home Use: Dentists-recommended products are a somewhat suitable alternative to in-office treatments. However, taking care of your own teeth whitening increases the risks of damage and decreases the effectiveness the product could have.

Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening Systems: Over-the-counter whitening systems are the most unreliable. Many products on the market can be dangerous to your tooth enamel and your gums. Excessive use of some of these products can severely damage or weaken your teeth. Before using any over-the-counter products, it is best to consult with your dentist.
