There are two types of whitening: Professional Whitening and Home Whitening.
Professional Whitening in the clinic is the most common form of tooth whitening. It is a highly effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface.
Commercially available tooth whitening systems have become popular, mainly because they’re relatively inexpensive and easy to use.
There are a few over-the-counter tooth whitening methods that can be purchased without dentist supervision. They include whitening strips, paint-on tooth gel, mouth trays with gel, whitening toothpaste, and even whitening gum. These are typically safe products, but if you have oral concerns, it’s a good idea to ask us if these products are safe to use.
While over-the-counter tooth whitening products are available, dentist-supervised tooth whitening remains the safest, most effective method for brightening your smile.
