3 Great Options for Whiter Teeth

dca-blog_teeth-whitening-two-women-pointing

White teeth make a great first impression, but tea, coffee, wine, tobacco, and advancing age can dampen their healthy glow. Don’t let tooth stains affect your self-esteem. Many over-the-counter and professional teeth whitening treatments can bleach away stains and give your smile new life. Choosing the right product can be tricky since everyone’s needs are different. The easiest way to determine what will work best for your teeth and your budget is to discuss teeth whitening options with your dentist in Orange City. 



Not all types of discoloration respond to teeth bleaching whitening agents. Yellow teeth will likely whiten better than brown-colored or grayish teeth. Bonding or tooth-colored fillings in front teeth can be a problem; the whitening agents won’t affect these materials, so if the natural portion of the tooth becomes whiter, the fillings may no longer match in color. If you have a complex case, you may want to consider other options such as veneers or bonding.

If you and your dentist in Orange City decide that teeth whitening products will improve your smile, you can choose from these three treatment options:

  1. In-office professional teeth whitening, also called chairside bleaching requires only one visit. Your dentist will first apply a protective device or paste to prevent irritation from the bleaching agent. After the agent is applied, a laser may be used to enhance the results.
  2. At-home teeth whitening products bleach tooth enamel with peroxide-based agents. They are available in brush-on gels, mouth guard trays, and coated strips. Because they contain bleach, these products may cause tooth sensitivity.
  3. Whitening toothpastes diminish stains with mild abrasives and chemical or polishing agents. ADA-approved whitening toothpastes can only remove surface stains; they cannot change the color of teeth.

When your teeth whitening treatments are complete, you’ll want to maintain the results for as long as possible. To keep your teeth whiter, practice good oral hygiene, and limit foods and beverages that stain teeth such as tea, coffee, and wine.
