Here are 5 ways you can whiten and brighten your teeth at home or in our office:
1.Whitening Toothpastes/Whitening Pens
A quick and easy way to achieve a whiter smile is to use whitening toothpastes or whitening pens. These can be incorporated into your everyday routine and will gradually whiten the tooth’s enamel with two main ingredients: hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide. Products such as Colgate Optic White, Crest 3D White Vivid Toothpaste and Oral B White Advanced Vivid Toothpaste allow you to remove surface stains as well as plaque build up. The Colgate Optic Whitening Pen allows you to paint a thin layer of whitening gel onto the tooth surface as it is convenient for you. Most can expect to see results in up to 2 days.
2.Whitening Mouth Rinses
Used in combination with whitening toothpastes, mouthwashes such as Colgate Total Lasting White Mouthwash and Crest 3D White Multi-Care Whitening rinse help protect the teeth from buildup of stains. The Triple action formulas remove surface stains from enamel, kill bad breath and protect against future staining.
Another quick and convenient way to achieve a whiter smile in the comfort of your own home are whitening strips. Products like Crest 3D White Strips are both safe for enamel and can produce results in just 3 days.
