Are you aware of the different types of teeth whitening treatment options and the benefits and cons of each? Although there are several products that offer ways to enhance your smile by whitening your teeth, your best options are whitening trays that use gels. However, it is important to be aware of your different options. Here are a few choices you should consider:

– Several whitening products exist within our society, and most of them are over-the-counter. However, many of them may not work as intended or can potentially lead to oral health risks. You should always speak with your dentist about product recommendations or suggestions before using any teeth whitening products.

– If you decide on forgoing the use of an over-the-counter products, consider visiting your dentist for a professional whitening treatment. Your dentist will customize a whitening tray for you to ensure your smile gets the treatment it deserves.

-Here, at Northport Prosthodontics, we offer in-house whitening treatments that take about an hour. We also have at-home kits you can use to brighten your smile.

– Due to the success that in-office whitening treatments can provide, they do not need to be given constantly. If you do require a touch-up though due to stains or discolorations caused by foods or drinks you may have consumed, your dentist can provide you with whitening treatment kits for at-home use. These can be highly beneficial for touch-ups as needed.
