Oral Health Strategies: Teeth Whitening Treatments

In order to ensure your smile can continue to receive the care it needs, it is important to always make sure your oral hygiene routines are in line with your oral health desires. However, brushing and flossing will not be able to effectively improve the color of your smile. For that, you will need a tooth whitening treatment. Although products such as mouthwash, chewing gum and toothpaste are known to tout teeth whitening benefits, the most appealing whitening treatments are given through professional treatment systems.

For a professional in-office tooth whitening treatment system, visit your dentist. In-office whitening procedures are known to be the most effective as they use the safest ingredients and whiten your teeth with durable holds that are designed for your specific dental profile. Because they are contoured to your exact teeth, you’ll be at a much lower risk for dental damage that can arise during treatment.

Oftentimes, in-office treatments can whiten your teeth by up to ten shades. This is extremely beneficial and can ensure you will not continually need whitening treatments on a regular basis. Your dentist can give you at-home treatment kits to use to touch up your smile as needed.

Due to the popularity and desire for whiter teeth by our society, the number of whitening systems that can be purchased over the counter has rapidly expanded in number. Furthermore, you can purchase them all over the place and receive whitening gels and treatments in a multitude of ways. Be aware though that many products are unregulated. If you are not careful and not using products correctly, you can find yourself with bleached gums or worn-down tooth enamel.
