Read on to learn more.
Try a Whitening Toothpaste
If you have never had your teeth whitened before, try using a whitening toothpaste to start out. Filled with a small amount of hydrogen peroxide, an over-the-counter whitening toothpaste will work to remove small surface stains on your teeth caused by food and beverages. Continue to use the whitening toothpaste for about 7-10 days, if you don’t notice a difference consider trying whitening strips.
Try Whitening Strips
Also found over-the-counter, whitening strips contain a stronger bleaching ingredient that can help to whiten your teeth. Available in different strengths, you can get whitening strips that work as fast as 24 hours. Although some people complain of tooth sensitivity following using whitening strips, that should subside after a few days.
If you have tried both whitening toothpaste and strips and still aren’t able to get your teeth white, come into see Dr. Dean Glasser. With either bleaching trays or laser whitening, Dr. Dean Glasser can whiten your teeth so that you are ready for Valentine’s Day.
There are some rare cases in which even with the help of laser whitening, Dr. Dean Glasser won’t be able to whiten your teeth-- such as if your teeth are stained from a medication like a tetracycline. However, by using whitening toothpaste, strips, or in-office whitening, you can get a brighter and whiter smile in virtually no time at all.
