Have you been down the oral care aisle at the store lately? There are so many options to choose from. There are toothpastes, whitening strips, mouth rinses, and gels that you wear overnight. What these products have in common is a bleaching agent that works on the surface stains of your teeth. To be fair, some do a pretty good job whitening teeth. But who wants to settle for a pretty good job?
Whitening toothpastes can remove minor stains, but don’t do much to change the overall color of your teeth. The whitening agents in them are not potent enough.
Whitening strips have a couple of drawbacks. Here too, the whitening agent it is not very potent. They also do not whiten between teeth because the strips only touch the front surface.
Teeth Whitening Gels
Whitening gels are painted onto teeth with a small brush. One problem with whitening gels is that they only stick to dry teeth. If any saliva gets on the teeth during treatment, the gel is more likely to slide off.

It is the safest, most convenient way to achieve a fabulous white smile. People from Foothills, Winter Haven CA, and Somerton also come to our practice for complete cosmetic dentistry services.
