A very popular dental treatment is teeth whitening. Many people are interested in more efficient ways to improve their smiles as quickly and effectively as possible. However, with the rush for a whiter smile, there are many products that have begun to appear that may not do everything they claim. If you are not careful you may end up damaging your gums and teeth.

By far, the most effective forms of tooth whitener are those professionally administered at the dentist office. They usually take less than 90 minutes per session and in one session, you can improve the color of your teeth by up to ten shades. Your dentist can give you a home whitening kit to touch up any spots that may need work.

One of the most commonly used forms of teeth whitening treatment is store-bought whiteners. Often, whiteners can be found in mouthwash and toothpaste, although teeth whitening kits can also be purchased over the counter. You should talk to your dentist before starting any dental treatment on your own.
