A whiter smile is often a brighter smile. Although there is no special pill in life that can instantly get you a slimmer waistline, there is a treatment that can give you instantly whiter teeth. With teeth whitening treatments, you can reverse your frown and start your day off with the smile you desire. However, teeth whiteners are not designed to combat the effects of tooth decay and gum disease, nor have any declarations been made for their oral health benefits, as they are used mainly for aesthetic purposes. Also, be aware of which service you use, as not all teeth whitening services are equal.

The most effective and safety form of tooth whitening treatments are those administered directly at the dentist office under the professional supervision of an expert. In-office tooth whiteners can be done in as little as 90 minutes and leave your teeth remarkably whiter. They are extremely effective because the whitening trays are designed specifically for your dental profile to ensure the tightest fit and hold possible during the whitening application process. The products used are also held to the highest standards of safety.

Sometimes, an in-office treatment is not necessary, and instead, your dentist can give you a treatment kit to use in your own leisure time. Although the materials will not be able to the job quite as spectacular as that done in-office, your teeth will still be noticeably whiter.

The last and most common form of teeth whiteners are those found at grocery stores and online. The industry is by and large unregulated and thus all forms of teeth whiteners exist, some of which are harmful and can damage your teeth and gums. Always check with your dentist before starting any store-bought tooth whitening product.
