Are you familiar with the various forms of teeth whitening treatments that are available to you in your everyday life? Although various products contain whitening ingredients, including chewing gum, mouthwash and toothpaste, your highest and most effective forms of teeth whitening treatments are available through whitening gels and trays.

In situations where your teeth are stained or discolored, you can dramatically improve the look of your teeth through teeth whitening treatments. Even though various options may be available in your everyday life, your best chances for improving the look of your smile through whitening treatments include those professionally administered by your dentist. In-office whitening treatments can be applied to improve the color of your teeth by up to ten shades. If you would rather use an over the counter teeth whitening product, then speak with your dentist to make sure that is safe for use so that it does not bleach your gums or eat through your tooth enamel. Furthermore, they may not be as effective as a professional whitening treatment or may not provide any benefits at all.
