Having white teeth is an essential part to a great smile. Normally, teeth are light colored, but can darken over time. Additionally, certain types of food and other things can create surface stains which darken teeth. These things include coffee, red wine, soda, and cigarettes, to list a few.
To whiten your teeth, there are two different methods: surface whiteners and bleaches.
Surface whiteners are products that use special abrasives to help remove surface stains, and are usually toothpaste or chewing gums. Out of the two methods, this one only works on surface stains.
Bleaches are peroxide-based treatments that can alter the color of the tooth itself. There are different ways this bleach can be applied to your teeth to start the whitening process.
These three applications are:
- Putting bleach on stained teeth and using heat to start the bleaching process
- Wearing a custom mouthguard filled with bleach for a part of your day
- Brushing with a special bleach mixed in your toothpaste
Consult with us to figure the best method of whitening your teeth.
