Through this health news article, different tooth whitening methods were evaluated to see which work best for patients’ needs. Some of the whitening methods tested included:
- Professional Tooth Whitening- these dental products were found to be more effective than whiteners that are sold over the counter. The concentration of peroxide is typically higher and whitening trays are created to best fit a patient’s mouth. This customization allows for the solution to stay in contact with the teeth and not the gums.
- Over-the-Counter Tooth Whitening- these teeth whiteners can be a good option, however they need to be used in moderation. Following the instructions is essential and make sure that you do not use these whiteners more than recommended. With too much use, the tooth structure can be harmed.
