There are many options available to patients today for enhancing the color of their teeth. We take the time to discuss a patient’s individual concerns and offer solutions that best suit the patient. Often, over-the-counter products can be very effective and less expensive than something that is provided professionally. Bear in mind when selecting something over the counter, to have an effective whitening experience, the product needs to be used consistently for several days to several weeks and each treatment should have a 10 to 30-minute application process. Whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes do not have an effective amount of time to lift the stain from your teeth.
When over-the-counter products are not providing the results an individual is looking for, we offer both in-office and take-home whitening options. We will discuss the risks and benefits of both options to allow you to make the best decision for your optimal whitening experience.
