Stained and discolored teeth are some things that can develop over time. If you start to notice your smile fading, now may be a great time to brighten your smile! There are several whitening options available through over-the-counter products such as whitening toothpaste, rinses, strips and gels. There are also some options offered at your dentist. But what is the best whitening option and which one will produce the greatest results? We’ll look at a few whitening options to help you decide which one would work best for your smile!
Toothpaste and Rinses
Whitening toothpastes and rinses usually show results with consistent use. Both work to remove surface stains and will help the teeth get whiter. However, these methods will most likely only make your teeth one shade whiter as they only treat the surface stains. You may see better results with continued use over a few months. These results will be gradual, but slow.
Whitening Strips and Gels
Many over-the-counter whitening strips and gels will work better than whitening toothpaste and rinses. This is because the whitening solution stays on the teeth much longer and in turn will work faster. With whitening strips or gels, you may see results in a few days or up to a few weeks depending on which method you choose. You can see better results with continued use.
Whitening trays are another option for brightening your smile. Your dentist will make a custom-designed tray for you by taking a mold of your mouth. These can work more effectively than over-the-counter trays as they will stay in place better since they are designed specifically for your teeth. Whitening solution is placed in the trays each time you whiten your teeth. With whitening trays, you may use them for weeks until you reach your desired results.
