Tooth whitening has quickly gained universal interest and has become one of the most requested dental procedures by patients of all ages. This surge in popularity has prompted an abundance of over-the-counter products and professional techniques promising the return of a bright white smile.

Over-the-Counter Whitening products

Teeth Whitening ProductsThe oral care section of your local supermarket or pharmacy is filled with products claiming to whiten your teeth from toothpastes, mouthwashes, dental floss and even chewing gum. Although these over-the-counter products appear like quick and convenient solutions, none of them are likely to have any significant impact on the colour of your teeth and are not designed to actually "bleach" your teeth and provide long lasting results.

Whitening Strips

Teeth Whitening StripsThe recent availability of whitening strips offers a more reliable method to achieve whiter teeth with an over-the-counter product. However, these strips are limited in their ability to whiten by the one-size-fits-all nature of the strip and the limited concentration of whitening agents available in over-the-counter products.

Whitening Trays and Gels

Teeth Whitening Gels & Mouth Guard Trays.Professionally dispensed whitening gels with custom-fitted mouth guard trays offer the potential to significantly whiten your teeth. Better results are attributed to a higher concentration of whitening agent in the gel and a custom-fitted tray holding the gel closer to the teeth. However, the tray will need to be worn for a sufficient period of time each day for several days to achieve the best results.

In-office whitening
