Save your smile from discoloration. If you are unhappy with the color of your teeth, there are plenty of teeth whitening treatments and products available both in-office and at home to enhance your smile.

Although some products are as effective and safe as others for whitening your teeth, it’s always best to seek the advice of a dentist before using any. The safest products currently on the market are in-office gels and treatment plans administered directly under the supervision of a licensed professional. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

– Speak with your dentist at Barry E. Malkiel, DDS before choosing a tooth whitening product.
– Be careful not to keep your whitening product in longer than specified. Failure to follow directions as specified can cause gum irritation, tooth sensitivity, or bleaching of your gums.
– The three most common forms of teeth whitening treatments are in-office professional treatments, dentist-provided at-home treatments, or over-the-counter treatments. In-office professional treatments are universally considered the safest and most effective form of teeth whitening treatment.
– With the proper use, a whitening product can drastically improve the color of your teeth, and in some cases, professional whitening treatments can whiten your teeth by up to ten shades in a single hour.

If you seek a whiter, brighter smile without any cosmetic procedures such as dental veneers or crowns, teeth whitening treatments are a great alternative.
