4 Bright Ideas in Teeth Whitening


Everyone wants a whiter smile, but not everyone knows how to whiten teeth. The trend of teeth whitening has been going strong for years, but new developments in dental care have led to these four whitening winners.

  1. Have a Brush with Paint-On Products – These user-friendly products provide a safe and effective way to whiten by literally painting a powerful bleaching agent onto the surface of teeth. Dentists recommend using a gel that stays on the teeth to avoid painful contact with gums. Yet since the teeth whitening agents are not contained in a sealed system, it can take months to start seeing results.
  2. Look into Over-the-Counter Trays – As the oldest type of teeth whitening, the process involves filling a heated tray with a strong whitening gel and then placing the tray in your mouth over teeth. While this form of teeth whitening works, it can be weeks until you see results and the gel can cause sensitivity.
  3. Give Whitening Strips the Green Light – Whitening strips were once the hottest dental development because they allowed the bleaching power of hydrogen peroxide to be applied to a disposable strip that could be directly placed onto teeth at home. These products have evolved over the years and are now considered extremely effective for at-home teeth whitening, with visible results in around two weeks.
  4. See the Light on Whitening Devices – If you ask dentists how to whiten teeth, most will recommend professional teeth whitening. While this treatment was once just performed by dentists, new whitening devices are showing up in stores that put the power of professional teeth whitening into an at-home treatment. These products require high-intensity light that is strong enough to boost the whitening power of hydrogen peroxide. By blending bright light and high heat, these devices provide professional results in as little as two days.

Keep in mind that the most effective teeth whitening method varies from person to person, so talk to your dentist in Blue Bell about your best way to whiten.
