Best Tooth Whitening

One of the biggest dental concerns that people face relates to the color of their teeth. Ideally, teeth should be a bright white but unfortunately this is often not the case.

Stained teeth occur over time and although this condition does not have any adverse health effects, it creates an unpleasant effect on a person’s smile.

The best tooth whitening reverses the appearance of stained teeth.

There are numerous tooth whitening techniques available to individuals. [Pullout:

Each tooth bleaching system has its individual merits and drawbacks.

Therefore, if you are interested in obtaining a teeth whitener, you should choose the best tooth whitening system after a careful consultation period with your dentist.

Tooth Whitening Tips

Generally,whatís involved with an in-office-based tooth whitening procedure---Bleaching procedures performed in the dentistís office involve a few different or additional steps -- namely, that a protective gel or guard is positioned over the gums before the bleaching agent is applied, the bleaching agent is applied directly to the teeth, and the whitening process is hastened with the use of heat, a special light, or laser light that is directed at the chemically coated teeth. There are other differences that are addressed in the next question.

Generally, whatís involved in the typical tray-based, tooth whitening procedure---For the more traditional types of teeth whitening procedures using tray-based tooth whitening systems purchased over-the-counter or through your dentistís office, the first step involves filling a mouth guard-like tray with a gel-like whitening solution -- which contains a peroxide-bleaching agent. This tray is then placed over the teeth and worn for a period of time, generally from a couple hours a day or every day during the overnight for up to 4 weeks and even longer (depending on the degree of staining and desired level of whitening). (For more information, see section about mouthpiece trays below.)
