There are a number of ways to make teeth white and restore your bright smile. 

whiter teeth in Chula VistaTeeth are normally whitened when they become discolored and stained on the surface because of drinking dark-colored liquids, using tobacco or not taking proper oral hygiene.

When stains and other materials accumulate on the surface of your teeth they form tartar.

By applying the right remedies, your teeth can be whitened and substances that cause discoloration can be eliminated.

Here are the most effective ways to get whiter teeth and improve the quality of your smile.

1. Use whitening toothpaste and rinses

If you want to get stains off your teeth consider applying over-the-counter toothpaste, rinses, and gels on the surface of your teeth. These products contain chemicals and polishing agents that work effectively at removing surface stains. Another benefit is they don’t change the natural color of teeth.

2. Get tooth-whitening kits

Tooth-whitening kits contain bleaching agent (carbamide peroxide) that aids in removing both surface and deep stains on the teeth.  Some kits contain a lower-strength gel that you apply to the surface of your teeth to whiten them. Sometimes tooth-whitening kits come with custom-made whitening trays which are the most effective in the long run. The custom whitening trays work by teeth exposing your teeth to the less-concentrated whitening gel for a longer period of time (worn daily for several weeks) so that the teeth can be whitened.

3. Use whitening strips

You can whiten your teeth more effectively using tooth-whitening strips. These strips are coated with a peroxide-based whitening gel and are thin and virtually invisible. The strips work well when you wear them a few minutes daily for 1-2 weeks.  Although the results are not as dramatic as with whitening kits, expect to see your teeth whitened in just a few days.

4. In-office whitening

If you want to get whiter teeth in a short period of time consider professional teeth whitening option. A professional teeth whitening is done in the dentist’s office. In-office teeth whitening allows the dentist to use a more powerful whitening gel and specialized light or laser that ensures bleaching happens faster.  It usually takes between 30 to 90 minutes to have your teeth whitened at the dentist’s office. You will need 1 to 3 appointments to have your teeth fully whitened and sparkling.
