Are you looking for a way to brighten your smile? Try teeth whitening! There are three options:

Whitening Toothpastes

Whitening toothpaste contains special chemical agents which gently break down stains. It’s kind of like what laundry stain removal does to your clothing, but perhaps more gentle. Be sure to look for the ADA seal of acceptance. Brands with the American Dental Association logo are tested for safety and effectiveness. However, no matter how good the brand, the method is such that it takes several weeks of twice-a-day application to make a visible difference.

In-Office Bleaching

Dynamic Dental Smiles in Sarasota, FL offers in-office bleaching. This is also called chairside bleaching. First, Dr. Maria Boutsikos will cover your gums with a protective layer or shield. Then she will apply a special bleaching gel to your teeth. In only one visit, your teeth will be visibly whiter. Chairside bleaching is a certifiable and time-tested practice. Call us at 941-549-8930 for whiter teeth today.

At-Home Bleaching

Some organizations sell products that bleach teeth with hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. These are usually sold as gel strips or trays. The concentration is not nearly as powerful as the gel applied through chairside bleaching. It usually takes several applications to achieve the whitening effect you desire.
