A tooth whitening treatment can be administered to remove the discolorations in your teeth caused by a lifetime of environmental exposure. Everything from the clothes we wear to the foods we eat can change the colors of our teeth. Teeth whitening treatments can reverse the effects and even bring out shades of white in teeth that are better than ever.

The two main types of whitening agents include bleaching with peroxide, which can eliminate deep stains, or other chemical products or materials, which often can only remove surface stains. The best and most effective treatments are those given by your dentist.

The three main types of teeth whitening treatments are professional cleanings given by dentists, treatments given by dentists for at-home use, and over-the-counter products for sale in-store or online.

Some over-the-counter goods can be hazardous to your health and can cause tooth sensitivity or bleach your gums. Some products can also cause gum irritation if the bleaching tray is inadequately used or if it is an incorrect size. Consult with our dentists at Grace Family Dental before choosing a service to help learn which ones are the safest and most effective for you.
