The Best Ways to Whiten Your Smile?

Do you often dream of a brighter, healthier-looking smile like the ones you see on TV and in the movies? With advancements in dentistry, there are now more ways than ever to supposedly whiten your smile, however which ways are the best? Today, Carlsbad Coastal Dental is discussing teeth whitening and the best ways to achieve a brighter smile.

DIY Teeth Whitening

When it comes to “do-it-yourself teeth whitening” there are a range of options available, including:

  • Teeth Whitening Strips
  • Teeth Whitening Toothpaste
  • Teeth Whitening Mouthwash

These store-bought teeth whitening products however have quite a few flaws. When it comes to the design, over-the-counter teeth whitening products are designed to ONLY remove exterior staining (which could be just as easily removed by properly brushing your teeth). Due to the fact these products aren’t designed using strong chemicals, the results are often less than to be desired as well, often taking months for even the slightest result. Along with the poor results, tooth sensitivity and irritation of the gums is quite common when using at home teeth whitening products, often resulting in discomfort and pain.

Professional Teeth Whitening

With professional teeth whitening there are a variety of options available depending upon which dentist you visit, however both in-office and take-home professional teeth whitening is often available. With professional teeth whitening, the treatments are designed to remove both exterior and interior staining, providing results in just one appointment. We also make sure to protect your gums, reducing your risk for irritation or sensitivity of the teeth and/or gums. Take-home kits are often available for maintenance in between visits with your teeth whitening dentist.
