Teeth whitening treatments for the summer season are sure to please. Teeth whiteners have exploded in popularity in recent years, so with the multitude of products on the market today, it can be important to speak with your dentist before choosing one.
Listed below are the three most common treatments of teeth whitening you can choose from:
– A professional whitening treatment done by your dentist at his office can potentially increase the shade color of your teeth by up to 10 shades in a single visit. Not only are professional whitening treatments given at the dentist office the safest forms of teeth whitener, they are also the most effective.
– If you choose to have your teeth whitened out of the dentist office during your own private time, your dentist can prescribe for you wonderful treatment kits for at-home use. Although the results might not be as spectacular as in-office treatments, they are still highly effective with safe products guaranteed.
– Over the counter treatments are the most numerous on the market today, with new brands and companies bringing out more products than ever before. Protecting your teeth includes finding the right teeth whitener, as some can strip away your tooth enamel and bleach your gums, so be sure to speak with your dentist before using an over the counter product.
