Would you like a bright white smile? Are you looking for a way to deal with teeth that suffer from minor staining at home? If so you might want to try using a teeth bleaching gel.

Your regular dental checkup and cleaning usually includes a tooth polishing procedure as part of the cleaning. This procedure is effective at removing mild surface stains. However if you enjoy food and drinks that cause minor stains, then tooth whitening gel can help maintain your white smile between your dental cleaning sessions.

If your teeth have to moderate surface stains or you aren’t satisfied with your results from using tooth whitening toothpaste or strips, you might want to try using a whitening gel. Most brands will use carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide as the primary whitening agent. These agents are slightly stronger than the peroxide commonly used in whitening strips.

Keep in mind that whitening gel will only deal with minor to moderate stains. If you have deeply stained teeth you may want to try our in-office tooth bleaching procedure. The concentration of bleaching agents in our procedure is the most effective way to remove stains from your teeth.

You should always talk to your dentist before starting any tooth whitening regimen. If you have questions about teeth whitening strips or you are curious about other tooth whitening options, please feel free to call us at 802-879-7811 to schedule an appointment.
