Over-the-Counter and Professional Teeth Whitening Options

dca-blog_teeth-whitening-two-women-pointing

If you’re like most people, a white smile is an important part of your self-image. Unfortunately, your teeth can take on a yellow or brown appearance due to a various factors like age, smoking, coffee and tea consumption, and even certain foods. If your teeth are otherwise healthy, there are a variety of whitening options available for your consideration. You can buy many teeth whitening products over the counter, but some can only be obtained from your dentist.

Following are today’s most popular over-the-counter and professional teeth whitening options:

Over-the Counter Teeth Whitening Toothpastes

: Teeth whitening toothpastes use gentle abrasives or chemicals to help remove surface stains. They can lighten teeth by about one shade. In comparison, professional treatments lighten your teeth by three to eight shades.

Over-the Counter Teeth Whitening Mouth Rinses

: Whitening rinses gradually lighten teeth with ingredients like hydrogen peroxide. Because the product only stays in contact with the tooth surface for a few seconds each day, it may take up to 12 weeks to see results.

Over-the Counter Teeth Whitening Gels and Strips

: Whitening strips are coated with a peroxide-based gel. They are placed onto your teeth for about 30 minutes twice each day and used for a total of two weeks. You may see improvements in a few days, and final results last up to four months. Whitening gels use a similar peroxide formula but are applied to your teeth with a small brush. Expected results are comparable to those of whitening strips.

Over-the Counter Teeth Whitening Trays

: Tray-based systems can be purchased over the counter or from your dentist in Tampa. Small trays resembling mouth guards are filled with a gel whitening formula and placed onto the teeth for varying lengths of time each day or night.

Professional In-Office Teeth Bleaching/Whitening

: Although it’s more expensive, in-office bleaching is the fastest way to whiten teeth. Professional teeth whitening systems use stronger agents that are applied directly to the tooth surface. Heat, light, or laser treatment may be used to enhance results. In some cases, dramatic changes are seen after only one treatment, but you’ll probably need several to achieve your desired level of whitening.
