Bright Ideas for Whitening Teeth

dca-blog_teeth-whitening-tooth-comparison

Wanting to learn how to whiten teeth? Now, a brighter smile can be yours through the wonder of teeth whitening. The trend began many years ago, but the practice is more popular than ever with these winning ways.

Teeth Whitening Strips

Whitening strips were once the hottest dental development because they allowed the bleaching power of hydrogen peroxide to be applied to a disposable strip that could be directly placed onto teeth at home. These products have evolved over the years and are now considered extremely effective for at-home teeth whitening, with visible results in around two weeks.

Paint-On Teeth Whitening Products

These easy-to-use brush-on products offer a convenient way to whiten by letting you paint a bleaching agent right onto your teeth. Dentists recommend using a gel that stays on the teeth to avoid painful contact with gums. Yet since the whitening agents are not contained in a sealed system, it can take months to start seeing results.

Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening Trays

Store-bought trays have stood the test of time and were one of the first ways to whiten. The process involves filling a heated tray with a strong whitening gel and then placing the tray in your mouth over teeth. While this form of teeth whitening works, it can be weeks until you see results and the gel can cause sensitivity.

Teeth Whitening Devices

This teeth whitening treatment was once just performed by dentists, but new whitening devices are showing up in stores that put the power of professional teeth whitening into an at-home treatment. These products require high-intensity light that is strong enough to boost the whitening power of hydrogen peroxide. By blending bright light and high heat, these teeth whitening devices provide professional results in as little as two days.

The best teeth whitening method varies from person to person, so be sure to talk to your dentist in Granger about your best way to whiten.
