There’s More Than One Way to Get Whiter Teeth

It’s easier than ever to get whiter teeth. Over-the-counter teeth whitening systems and products are widely available. If you want more dramatic results, professional teeth whitening is a great investment. Both types of systems use peroxide-based agents to bleach teeth, but professional systems are much stronger and work faster. Before choosing a treatment type, talk to your dentist in Thorndale. Keep in mind that tooth bleaching will not whiten restorative materials like porcelain crowns or composite bondings. The following options can help you get whiter natural teeth.

Dentist In-Office Whitening Treatments

The fastest way to get whiter teeth is to visit your dentist in Thorndale for professional whitening treatments. The bleaching solutions used in professional whitening systems are much more potent than those contained in over-the-counter treatments. Some systems also use light or heat to enhance or speed results. For the most dramatic results, you will probably need several hour-long office visits, but some systems are designed to provide maximum results within a single two-hour visit.

At-Home Teeth Whitening Products

  • Teeth whitening toothpastes use mild abrasives, chemicals, and polishing agents to gradually lighten tooth stains without bleach.
  • Coated strips and brush-on whitening gels are applied directly to your teeth once or twice daily for about two weeks. Results last for up to four months.
  • Over-the-counter tray-based systems use a small tray shaped like a mouth guard to expose teeth directly to a peroxide bleaching gel or paste. The trays are generally left in place for several hours a day for up to a month. Professional-grade tray systems are also available from your dentist.

Teeth bleaching/whitening products are not for everyone. Those with sensitive teeth may find them uncomfortable. Home kits can cause burned or bleached gums if not used correctly. If your teeth are brown, gray, or purple, bleaching may not work.

Talk to your dentist in Thorndale to determine which whitening options will work best for your teeth. To keep your teeth looking whiter after treatment, practice excellent oral hygiene, and avoid over-consumption of black teas, coffee, wine, berries, and carbonated sodas.
