If you check the oral health care aisles at shops or the chemist, you will quickly see that there is no shortage of whitening products you can purchase. There are strips, gels, toothpaste, and rinses all of which claim to make your teeth whiter.
There are also a number of other DIY tooth whitening methods that have been discussed online recently, including oil pulling, charcoal, and turmeric. How effective are these teeth whitening methods? And how safe are they?
Professional teeth whitening includes a whitening gel that is stronger than what you can purchase over-the-counter; it is designed to penetrate the teeth to remove even some of your most stubborn stains. In addition, your dentist will take precautions to protect the soft tissues of the mouth before applying the whitening gel. Most of our teeth whitening patients report feeling very little sensitivity after treatment.
