If you are looking to enhance your smile with teeth whitening products, there are plenty of options available to you. Some can be dangerous so it is important to learn which treatment options work best, and which ones to avoid.

Not all teeth whitening treatments are the same, so it is important to the know the differences between them. Here are some effective guidelines about teeth whitening treatment options.

– Speak with your dentist at Dodge Family Dental before choosing a tooth whitening product.

– Be careful not to keep your whitening product in longer than specified. Failure to follow directions as specified can cause gum irritation, tooth sensitivity, or bleaching of your gums.

– The three most common forms of teeth whitening treatments are in-office professional treatments, dentist-provided at-home treatments, or over-the-counter treatments. In-office professional treatments are universally considered the safest and most effective form of teeth whitening treatment.

– With the proper use, a whitening product can drastically improve the color of your teeth, and in some cases, professional whitening treatments can whiten your teeth by up to ten shades in a single hour. 

If you seek a whiter, brighter smile without any cosmetic procedures such as dental veneers or crowns, teeth-whitening treatments are a great alternative.
