Teeth Whitening

Yellow or stained teeth are frequently looked upon as a sign of bad hygiene. Teeth yellow normally from exposure to smoke and food in the absence of diligent brushing. Over time, the staining becomes deeper and more difficult to remove.

In recent months, whitening toothpastes have been upstaged by whitening strips and gels that work by extended contact with the teeth. Dental whitening using light to speed the process has also become a popular cosmetic service at the dentist's office.

  • Whitening toothpaste - regular brushing with a whitening tooth paste can improve teeth color over time.
  • Home bleaching - a low strength bleaching solution is applied to the teeth for an extended time to bleach the stains. A low cost approach that requires diligent use to achieve results.
  • Professional bleaching - a stronger bleach is applied in the dentist's office with protection for the gums applied before the bleach solution. Least difficult but most expensive approach.

All three methods, when used as directed, are generally considered safe, although users should be aware that they will not affect the color of crowns.
