One of the most frequent requests we get is from patients who want whiter teeth.

This is understandable, removing stains is one of the simplest ways to improve your smile. When people feel better about their smiles, they are more likely to share those smiles.

This can help you both feel and appear friendlier, more confident, and more relaxed.

It’s also easy to get confused about which whitening products work and which ones don’t. With so many different options, don’t take chances with your smile. To get the results you want, your best bet is professional teeth whitening, like we offer at McNulty & Dancausse General Dentistry.

Take Control of Your Smile

If you have been alive for any significant amount of time, your teeth have developed some stains.

We eat and drink so many things that add to these stains — coffee, cake, pie, pizza, spaghetti, tea, wine, and more — that it’s almost inevitable. This may go without saying, but tobacco use of any kind will make those stains worse.

It’s generally true that if something will stain your shirt that it will stain your teeth as well.

The good news is that these are extrinsic stains. They can be removed by whitening products with bleaching agents.

Both commercial and professional products contain these bleaching agents. The difference is the concentration of the bleaching ingredients in those products. Since professional products contain more of these ingredients, they can remove deeper stains and often do so in less time than over-the-counter options.

It’s been reported that most people who use over-the-counter whitening options aren’t really satisfied with their results. To make your teeth as white and bright as you really want them to be, you should start by visiting with a dental professional.

Know Your Options

You do have multiple options if you are ready to bring back your pearly whites.

  • Philips Zoom DayWhite – This is a take-home whitening kit. You will receive whitening trays that are custom-molded for your teeth. We’ll show you have to apply the whitening gel, which you will use for 30 to 90 per day. Within two weeks, most people see visible changes to their smiles.
  • Philips Zoom NiteWhite — This is similar to the DayWhite except you wear this while you sleep. Some patients prefer this because it takes so little time out of their daily activities.
  • Dental veneers — For a variety of reasons, you may not be a good candidate for traditional whitening. If so, veneers provide an alternative means of creating the beautiful white smile that you want.

This also is why it is important to talk to a dental professional before using products with bleaching agents. You don’t want to use them if they aren’t going to work for you.
