What's the Best Way to Whiten My Teeth

Posted on 4/10/2023 by Moyer Office
What's the Best Way to Whiten My TeethTooth decolorization can make you feel a little embarrassed when opening your mouth and can make smiling become a problem too. However, you can use various methods to whiten teeth depending on how fast you want to achieve results and your planned budget. While most of these ways are take-home techniques, professional tooth whitening by a dentist is usually the most recommended. You can whiten at home, but be cautious because you could easily damage your teeth.

Whitening should be done after a dental checkup as it does not treat cavities and gum diseases. Some teeth whitening processes may cause pain in aching teeth so always confirm if you are in the right position to undertake such treatments. Therefore, what whitening techniques can you consider?

Whitening Toothpaste

Some kinds of toothpaste have bleaching agents that aid with teeth whitening during brushing. However, some of these tubes of toothpaste contain very abrasive materials that can be acidic in the mouth. Therefore, it is recommended that you get advice from experts or a dentist on which ones are best to use in the current market.

Whitening Trays

Whitening trays are fabricated the same way as mouthguards. A dentist obtains molds of teeth and uses the models to make the whitening trays. You are provided with a bleaching solution that you pour into the trays before placing them in the mouth. You use these trays for about 15 minutes daily and it can take two to three weeks to achieve results.

In-office Whitening

It is the most efficient way to whiten your teeth as the results are obtained immediately after the treatment. There are various ways professionals use to whiten teeth including the use of special lights, peroxide solutions, and other bleaching agents. These methods produce the best results but are a bit expensive compared to others.
