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

What are the differences between supervised versus unsupervised tooth whitening processes---Dentist-supervised at-home bleaching and in-office treatment offer additional benefits compared with over-the-counter procedures. First, your dentist can perform an oral examination and consider your complete medical history, which can be helpful in determining how your teeth became discolored and if bleaching is an appropriate course of treatment based on your type of stains and number, type, and location of restorations. Your dentist can then better match the type of stain with the best treatment, if appropriate, to lighten those stains. With dentist-supervised bleaching procedures, your dentist will likely want to see you a couple of times to ensure you are following directions, to make sure the customized tray is fitting properly, to inspect your gums for signs of irritation, and to generally check on how the teeth whitening process is proceeding. With over-the-counter bleaching products, you are on your own.

What are Whitening strips and gels---These are very thin, virtually invisible strips that are coated with a peroxide-based whitening gel. The strips are applied twice daily for 30 minutes for 14 days. Initial results are seen in a few days and final results are sustained for about 4 months. The retail cost for this product ranges from $10 to $55 for a 14-day treatment. Both of these products contain peroxide in a concentration that is much lower than the peroxide-based products that are used in your dentistís office. Although some teeth lightening will be achieved, the degree of whitening is much lower than results achieved with in-office or dentist-supervised whitening systems.
