Types Of Teeth Whitening

Posted on 6/6/2022 by Thomas Wold, DMD
Types Of Teeth WhiteningOne of the most popular dental procedures is tooth whitening. Medications like tetracycline, caffeine, red wine, and smoking can discolor teeth over time, as can the natural aging process. At our offices, we have many alternatives for teeth whitening. We will be able to recommend the best solutions for you based on your unique objectives and needs. Take-home kits and in-office professional teeth whitening treatments are all available. These can be done in a single visit or over a series of sessions. There are various ways to brighten your smile, including dental implants and veneers.

Toothpaste with whitening properties

Whitening toothpaste employs a variety of methods to brighten your teeth. Baking soda, abrasives, or chemicals removes surface stains from teeth by polishing them or giving them a shiny appearance. When shopping for teeth whitening toothpaste, look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance.

Teeth Whitening Products Available Over-the-Counter

Strips, trays, and brushes in teeth whitening kits let you apply a whitening agent to your teeth longer than toothpaste. A common ingredient in these kits is peroxide, a bleaching agent that removes stains that go deeper than the surface. Search for the ADA seal of approval if you're looking for an over-the-counter tooth whitening product.

Zoom Whitening of Teeth

To whiten your teeth, you'll need a 25% hydrogen peroxide gel and a specific lamp. This is only found at dental offices.

Take-Home Kits

Several dentists provide take-home teeth whitening treatments. A pre-assembled kit or custom-made bleach trays are the two available options. Even though some of these are similar to the over-the-counter whitening kits, they usually contain a higher bleach concentration than the latter.


If typical bleaching procedures fail to remove stains, veneers come in handy as an alternative for improving your smile's appearance.
More options are available at our offices if you want to whiten your teeth. Now is the best moment to call and book an appointment with us.
