Would you feel better about your smile if your teeth were whiter and brighter? Then you may want to try teeth whitening. Discover the many ways that you can have a whiter smile.

Teeth Whitening Categories

There are many different ways to whiten your teeth. There is a large range of products that can brighten your smile. But the best teeth whitening method for you is the one that suits your needs. Whitening methods fall into these two main categories:

  • Teeth Whitening Toothpastes – These offer a minimal whitening effect for a minimal price. But because they use abrasive materials to scrape off surface stains and polish tooth enamel, they are tough on the teeth and should not be used on a daily basis.
  • Teeth Bleaching – Bleaching changes the color of the tooth enamel and removes stains on both the surface and deep within the teeth. Teeth bleaching can be performed professionally in your dentist’s office or at home with an over-the-counter kit. Different products use different concentrations of a bleaching chemical to lighten teeth, but professional bleaching involves higher-strength products and processes for brighter, faster, longer-lasting results.

Bleaching Basics

According to dentists, bleaching is the best whitening method. Your dentist can provide you with an at-home bleaching kit, but realize that these contain a lower concentration of bleach that an in-office teeth bleaching procedure. As a result, they deliver minor whitening over a brief period of time. But in-office bleaching is the optimal option because it uses a stronger bleaching agent with a special laser that speeds up the whitening process. This enables in-office teeth bleaching to provide much whiter results in barely an hour that last for a much longer time, along with the safety of dentist supervision.

Whitening Warnings

Teeth bleaching has come a long way, but it does not work well on every smile. The best results are seen on yellowish teeth, but it can also improve teeth that have browned over time. Gray teeth do not respond well to bleach. It is also not recommended for teeth with bonding or tooth-colored fillings on your front teeth. Ask your dentist whether teeth bleaching is right for you and if will whiten the way you want.
