Teeth whitening is a noninvasive and extremely common procedure that can give you the smile you always dreamed of having. Even if you are properly brushing and flossing, it is still likely that you may not feel as confident as you would like when it comes to the color of your teeth. In fact, according to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the most common concern among patients is the color of their teeth.
One of the most common ways to whiten your teeth is whitening gels that have active ingredients that will sink into your enamel and remove the discoloring that is current visibly present. The molecules from the oxygen that are present in the whitening gels react with the discoloration in your teeth and as a result, give you whiter and brighter teeth.
It is important to remember there are several options that can be utilized when you decide you want to get your teeth whitened, so you should discuss with your dentist on which option works best for you.
