Best At Home Teeth Whitening Kits

The best at home teeth whitening kits are the ones you get from a dentist office. We are happy to assist you with whitening your teeth, and perform this procedure on a regular basis. Our goal is for our patients to have healthy teeth and gums that also look beautiful. Whitening is a frequent part of that process, because, over time, it is natural for teeth to become yellow and stained. Years of drinking coffee, smoking, drinking soda, and eating red pasta sauce can wreak havoc on how your teeth appear, and this easy treatment can help turn back the clock.

Most of our patients are aware that teeth whitening is an option available to them and that it works. However, with so many products on the market, it can be difficult to tell which one will work the best and what to try. It helps to understand more about how the whitening process works. Whether you have your teeth whitened at the dentist, use a dentist-approved whitening kit, or buy something at the store, the solution will generally contain a level of peroxide. The type of peroxide and the chemical makeup of the solution will vary from brand to brand and so will its effectiveness. Most store-bought whitening kits only remove surface stains from the teeth, because the solution is not as strong as what you can get from the dentist.

If you want to remove the deep stains or yellow hue defining your smile, you need the best at home teeth whitening kits. Buying one from our dental office is ideal because it contains a professional-grade whitening solution that will penetrate your enamel. This way, the deep stains inside your teeth will begin to lighten or be removed altogether. Our solution works by penetrating the enamel and starting the process of oxidization. This is where the molecules inside your teeth begin to reflect less light and appear colorless, giving your teeth a bright, white appearance.

Another factor to consider when looking for the best at home teeth whitening kits is how the solution is applied to your teeth. The best kits use whitening trays because it allows the solution to remain on your teeth long enough to make a difference. The trays themselves are also significant, because if you buy a kit from the store, you will be using trays that are designed to fit everyone and are not customized for your mouth. A kit from our office, however, will be customized using an impression of your teeth, ensuring that it fits tightly and securely. This will prevent the whitening solution from leaking out onto your gums and irritating them. When people complain about the whitening process, they often reference leaking solution, so this is a significant benefit.

We always recommend that you whiten your teeth under the supervision of a dentist for your own safety. Whitening is perfectly safe as long as you use it as directed and if you do not have teeth that are currently infected or damaged. We will make sure that you are healthy enough for this treatment and that it is done correctly for the best possible results.
