It’s hard for eyes to deny a bright smile. A bright white smile can appear youthful, healthy, and inviting. Yet, teeth tend to dull or appear darker over time due to various factors like food and beverage choices or poor oral habits.

Fortunately, teeth whitening treatment is widely available, and achieving a white smile only leaves the question of how to choose the right teeth whitening treatment.

Teeth Whitening Treatments

If you choose to enhance your smile with a teeth whitening treatment, you may realize the selection of options is abundant. Though there are many forms of teeth whitening treatment, each at least contains one of the two chemical agents, carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide, that work to remove deep and surface stains.

Whitening treatments that contain these chemical properties include:

  • Over-The-Counter Whitening Methods: Strips, trays, pens, etc.
  • Professional Whitening Methods: In-office, take-home trays

Treatment Considerations

Though over-the-counter and professional whitening treatments can help you achieve a white smile, one may be a better route for you than the other. Generally, anything regarding your oral health is best to be discussed with one of our team members to keep your teeth healthy and safe.

If you’re doing your research before speaking with one of our team members, then the following can be helpful when choosing the right whitening treatment for you!

Over-the-counter whitening is often more affordable than professional whitening treatments and convenient. Still, over-the-counter products may require a longer time to present visual results and could harm your oral health when improperly done.

Professional whitening treatments may be more of an investment than a store kit. But can effectively provide noticeable results, whether opting for a take-home tray or completing it in-office, where all you have to do is sit back and relax!
