Take a Shine to the Best Teeth Whitening Tactics

dca-blog_teeth-whitening-tooth-comparison

If your teeth have lost their luster and you’re unhappy with your smile, you may want to consider teeth whitening. Studies show that a whiter smile can make you feel more confident, so learn how to get brighter teeth and a smile that you love.

Types of Teeth Whitening

While many products can give you a whiter smile, the best teeth whitening method is the one that suits your needs. Methods fall into these two main categories:

  1. 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.
  2. Bleaching – This 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 that may be worth the additional cost.

Basics of Bleaching

Dentists agree that bleaching is the best whitening method. Your dentist in Ocoee 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 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

Be aware that teeth bleaching doesn’t work well for everyone. 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 if teeth bleaching is right for you and whether it will whiten the way you want.
