Which Teeth Whitening Treatment Is Best for You?

Do you want to have whiter teeth? Do you know which type of teeth whitening treatment is best for you? With the help of our team at McBride Dental, we can assist you.

When making the consideration of which type of teeth whitening system you should use, it is important to know the advantages of each. Below are the three main types:

In-Office Teeth Whitening Treatments: In-office teeth whitening consists of getting professional whitening treatments done by your dentist. It is considered the safest and most effective treatment. In as little as one visit, your teeth can be whitened by up to ten shades. Additionally, your gums are at a much lower risk of damage as many in-office gels include gum protecting ingredients. The whitening trays have the greatest holds and can be custom-designed for your teeth.

Dentist-Provided Teeth Whitening Treatments for At-Home Use: Dentists-recommended products are a somewhat suitable alternative to in-office treatments. However, taking care of your own teeth whitening increases the risks of damage and decreases the effectiveness the product could have.

Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening Systems: Over-the-counter whitening systems are the most unreliable. Many products on the market can be dangerous to your tooth enamel and your gums. Excessive use of some of these products can severely damage or weaken your teeth. Before using any over-the-counter products, it is best to consult with your dentist.
