At-Home Whitening

When it comes to dentist-approved whitening methods, you start with the choice between at-home or in-office whitening. If you choose to whiten at home, you’ll probably save some money, but you’ll need to put in the time and research to make sure you’re choosing something that’s safe and healthy. You’ll find whitening strips, pastes, and kits at the drugstore. A helpful hint when choosing a product is to look for the seal of acceptance from the American Dental Association. You can also always give us a call and we’ll be happy to let you know our favorite products.

Professional Whitening

Many dental offices, including Kildaire Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, offer in-office whitening services to their patients. Results from these services tend to be much more effective and long lasting than what can be obtained with at-home treatments. And, since the product is being administered by a professional, you don’t have to worry, your teeth are in good hands.

What to Avoid

Avoid any at-home whitening solutions, or products that haven’t been clinically proven to work, and work safely. Do-it-yourself whitening concoctions are all over the internet, but don’t take your chances with something as precious as your teeth–you’ll risk causing permanent damage to your enamel.
