Teeth naturally stain over time, and even with proper brushing and flossing it is likely staining will occur. There are several options to whiten your teeth, but the following are the most effective options and are only available through a licensed dental professional:
GLO Professional Whitening Products: these products use proven, blue-light accelerated whitening technology and are offered in both an in-office whitening option and a take home whitening kit.
Custom Tooth Whitening Trays: these trays can be used with prescription strength whitening gel every night until you reach your desired level of tooth whiteness.
We also recommend having your teeth cleaned at least every six months to remove any surface level stains that redevelop.
Many of our patients have questions regarding whitening teeth naturally and at home remedies for whiter teeth they have found on the internet. Unfortunately, these remedies give inconsistent results and can actually be very harmful to your tooth enamel and gum tissue. We highly suggest speaking to Dr. Kuiper before trying any whitening products that you read about online.
