It’s not uncommon for the bright white smile you enjoyed in your youth to dull with stains brought upon by aging, tobacco use, or dark foods and drinks. If you feel this way, then chances are good it’s time for you to investigate your tooth whitening options. How deeply your teeth are stained will directly influence what tooth whitening products are right for you.
It’s a good idea to talk to your dentist before starting any tooth whitening regimen. They are trained to help you find the right products or procedures for bright white smile you desire.
Whitening strips us a topical form of peroxide as their primary whitening agent. The concentrations are slightly stronger than you will find in most whitening toothpaste. Many people like strips because they are convenient. All you have to do is apply the strips over your teeth and they will whiten while you’re on the go. Most brands only advise wearing the strips for a half hour at a time. While wearing them you should avoid eating, drinking and using tobacco.
Whitening strips are only strong enough to manage minor stains on teeth. If you have deeply stained teeth you should talk to your dentist about a dental bleaching procedure.
