What Types of Options are Available to Whiten Teeth

dca-blog_teeth-whitening-two-women-pointing

Everyone wants a bright, white smile, but teeth are vulnerable to discoloration from foods and drinks, tobacco use and even normal aging. If your teeth are healthy, and you don’t have missing fillings, a variety of whitening products are available to give your smile a makeover. If you have sensitive teeth or advanced discoloration, your dentist has products and treatment systems to help. Teeth whitening is not for everyone. If you’re not sure how whitening products will affect your teeth, consult your dentist in Sarasota. Listed below are the different types of whitening options available.

Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening Toothpastes



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.

Whitening Strips and Gels



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.

Teeth Whitening 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.

Tooth-Whitening Trays



Tray-based systems can be purchased over the counter or from your dentist. 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



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. Although it’s more expensive, in-office bleaching is the fastest way to whiten teeth.
