Teeth-whitening systems are now faster, easier, and more affordable than ever. There has never been a better time in the history of dentistry to get a noticeably whiter smile in the period of a single afternoon. However, with all the advances in technology, the market has been oversaturated with products, many of which not only fail to do what they promise but also can potentially harm your teeth and gums. The dentists at Dental Implant and Aesthetic Specialists of Atlanta will gladly help you get a whiter and brighter smile safely and effectively.

There are three types of teeth whitening systems available: by dentists done in-office, by dentists for at-home use, and over the counter. With a safe, effective tooth-whitening treatment, your result could last for over a year.

In-office whitening is the safest and most effective. You can have your teeth whitened up to 10 shades. In addition, your gums are protected from the materials in the treatment. In many of the best whitening systems, there is a special feature that can actively protect tooth enamel from damage.  The whitening trays are also custom fitted to your teeth, resulting in a much cleaner, tighter, whiter, and brighter result.

Dentists may also recommend specific teeth whitening products for at home use.

Over-the-counter whitening systems can be hit-or-miss. Many of the products can be dangerous to your teeth and gums, and some have shown to not even work at all.  Before using any over-the-counter teeth whitening kits, please consult your dentist.

Always remember to properly care for your teeth and gums. If you experience any tooth discomfort or tooth sensitivity with any product, be sure to consult your dentist.
