If you would like your smile to be whiter than it is, you have many options available to you. We will cover a few of them in this blog post. Feel free to call us with any questions!

The fastest and most effective way to whiten teeth is to get it done at the dentist’s office. At Dr. Kent Stapley & Dr. Nathan Kitchen, we offer professional teeth whitening treatments that will bring you a super star smile quickly. In-office whitening typically takes about an hour, during which our team can noticeably brighten your smile and remove stains.

At-home treatments are also effective, particularly if you want to touch up the work done in-office. Working on your smile from home allows you to brighten your smile over a longer period of time.

There are several over-the-counter options available to you. Whitening toothpastes are especially effective if your smile only needs to maintain its current coloring. Whitening strips or gels can also bring your smile a few shades lighter.

Be aware of two things: over-the-counter products will take longer than whitening from your dentist. More importantly, some products sold as whiteners may not be good for tooth enamel. Look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance on any teeth whitening product you buy to ensure you are getting a safe and effective product. You may also ask your general dentist for recommendations.
