Does Whitening Toothpaste Work?

Are your teeth not as bright and white as they used to be? If so, you are not alone! Everyone, it seems, would like to have whiter teeth and a better smile. Teeth whitening at Eric Hull DDS Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Comstock Park, MI may be just what  you need.

Of course, there are plenty of over-the-counter products you might want to try. Any grocery store will have plenty of options in the dental care aisle: every major brand of toothpaste, it seems, offers a whitening version.

Whitening toothpastes work by adding chemical agents that polish and whiten teeth and they do a fairly good job. However, these products can only remove stains that are on the surface. This generally results in whitening by roughly one shade.

Professional whitening, on the other hand, can whiten your teeth up to eight shades. The process is simple: a whitening agent, such as carmabide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide, is applied to the surface of your teeth. The chemical process thoroughly removes stains and leaves you with a smile that looks brand-new!

We offer both take-home trays, which you can do at your convenience, or in-office Zoom!® whitening treatment, which accelerates the process and can leave your smile looking several shades lighter in just one visit.
