If you’re like most people, you want a beautiful, white smile to be what people notice when they meet you. If your teeth have turned yellow or brown, important first impressions may not be so positive. Teeth become discolored for various reasons. Normal aging and tobacco use lead to yellowing. Brown stains are often caused by coffee or tea. Even wine and berries can leave stains. These stains can often be removed effectively using one of two options. You can make an appointment with your dentist to discuss professional, in-office teeth whitening or try at-home treatments.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

In-office whitening systems typically involve fitting custom-made trays over your teeth and leaving them for specified lengths of time. Some systems use a light source to enhance results. The entire process usually takes place in the dentist’s office, but professional whitening trays can also be adapted for home use.

At-Home Teeth Whitening

Over-the-counter teeth whitening options for use at home include whitening rinses and toothpastes, gel strips and whitening trays. Rinses and toothpastes work gradually and only expose your teeth to a small amount of bleach. Gel strips and whitening tray systems work faster, but require more application time.

Which is the Right Teeth Whitening Treatment for You?

If you have healthy teeth and gums, at-home treatments may be a convenient and appealing choice. They’re easy to use and relatively inexpensive. If you have problems with tooth sensitivity, professional treatment may be the better option. Your dentist in Collingdale can manage sensitivity symptoms and make the whitening process more comfortable. You’ll also get faster and more dramatic results with professional teeth bleaching whitening agents.

Some people shouldn’t use whitening treatments. These include pregnant women and people with gum disease or untreated tooth decay. Talk to your dentist about your whitening options to find out what is best for you.
