When you are looking for a treatment option for whitening your teeth, you have a variety of choices to select from. Over-the-counter products can be an economical option if you only have some surface staining. However, if your teeth are discolored beneath the surface enamel, you may want to choose a stronger treatment option.

Over-the-counter products, such as toothpastes, often use chemicals or abrasive materials to break up and scrub away stains that are on the surface of your teeth. This can be stains from nicotine use or form dark beverages or staining foods. Other products, such as rinses, may use optical brighteners that help to make your teeth appear whiter.

When discoloration or yellowing goes below the surface, you may need a bleaching product. Over-the-counter choices include gels, strips, and trays with a low concentration of peroxide bleaching agents. The bleach can get beneath your enamel to whiten teeth below the surface.

Zoom whitening is done in the dentist’s office in about an hour. Your teeth may look several shades lighter after just one treatment. Teeth that are stained or yellow react better to whitening treatments, while those that are brownish or grayish may not be improved.
