Are your teeth your ideal color? Do you ever wish they were whiter and brighter, but no amount of brushing and flossing is helping? The truth is that brushing and flossing are designed to improve your oral health by fighting against the dangers that cause tooth decay and gum disease. They are not designed to brighten the color of your teeth, although caring for your teeth can bring out its natural color more easily. For extra color, tooth whiteners can be used.

Start your day off with a brighter and whiter smile. Follow these tooth whitener tips today:

Why should you whiten your teeth?
– With teeth whitening treatments, you can upgrade the shade color of your teeth, remove stains, enhance your feeling of self-worth and self-esteem, and make you more socially acceptable by potential employers, friends, and your peers.

What teeth whitening treatment options are there?
– In-office professional treatments are considered the greatest teeth whitening treatments available, as they are safe, customized to your dental profile, and administered directly by licensed professionals. At-home products given by your dentist are also useful and safe. Over-the-counter products are unregulated and some can harm your teeth and gums. Talk with your dentist before using store-bought treatments.

TRUE or FALSE: Teeth whitening treatments reinforce teeth.
– This is false. Teeth whitening treatments are implements to remove stains and improve discoloration issues. Teeth whitening products should never be used to fight cavities or as a substitute to brushing or flossing.
