TV Tooth Whitening - Know the risks

If it's done right, whitening can be a safe, inexpensive and dramatic way to whiten your smile. If you're thinking of whitening your teeth at home using a kit ordered from a TV infomercial, or purchased from the drug store, make sure that you understand the risks!

No one can guarantee the results of whitening. But one thing is certain, we're up-to-date on all the latest materials and techniques. We have better ways to control the potential side effects and can do the job faster and more effectively.  The tooth whitening products advertised on TV work in much the same way as ours. They use hydrogen peroxide to bleach out stains on your tooth enamel, but that's where the similarities end. The amount of hydrogen peroxide varies with every brand so the results are not nearly as predictable as products from our office.

If you are considering tooth whitening, give us a call or talk to us during your next visit. We can make a recommendation on the best product to brighten your smile. more...
