Available Teeth Whitening Options

smiles (196)

When it comes to whitening your smile, you have plenty of options to choose from. Unfortunately, not all of them are equally effective. A check-up and cleaning before your next whitening treatment can ensure that you get the most out of your teeth whitening experience.

Some common options include:

  • Whitening toothpastes
    These special toothpastes contain an abrasive that can polish teeth and remove superficial stains. They cannot substantially lighten the color of your teeth, though.
  • Over-The-Counter whitening strips and kits
    OTC whiteners use a peroxide-based formula in a lower strength for safety. They are easy to apply and use, but the results can be minimal.
  • Professional at-home whitening
    This is an excellent alternative to OTC whiteners and can dramatically lighten teeth with a prescription-strength formula.
  • Professional in-office whitening
    This treatment is considered the fastest and most effective whitening option available. Professional in-office whitening offers the dramatic results you crave with a single office visit. Teeth can be transformed, with results being eight to 10 shades whiter. Your new look can last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance.

Anyone with healthy teeth and gums may be a candidate for teeth bleaching. Call us to find out more or to schedule an appointment with our West Hollywood cosmetic dentist.
