When you’re looking for options on how to improve your appearance, your teeth may be one of the first things you think about. And rightfully so, as our smiles are one of the first things people notice about us. Teeth whitening is a fantastic way to improve the appearance of your smile without needing to alter the shape or structure of your teeth.

Three systems for whitening your teeth are generally available. Professional in-office treatment, a professional take-home option, and whitening systems you buy from a retailer. Retail options are not as effective as professional treatments. If done well, your whitening could last a long time.

In-office whitening is the safest and most effective. You can have your teeth whitened up to 10 shades. In addition, your gums are protected from the materials in the treatment. In many of the best whitening systems, there is a special feature that can actively protect tooth enamel from damage. The whitening trays are also custom fitted to your teeth, resulting in a much cleaner, tighter, whiter, and brighter result.
