If your teeth are darker than you want, don’t fret! You have access to a variety of teeth whitening options, most of which use hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, along with a whitening tray that you wear over your teeth to break down stubborn tooth stains and reduce their visibility. Here, we have offered a review of your main options for teeth whitening to fight any tooth darkening agents.

Whitening toothpastes are simple and easy to find in most drug stores and supermarkets. They whiten teeth using abrasives and are pretty inexpensive, though we encourage you to choose a product that contains the ADA Seal of acceptance. Keep in mind that these toothpastes can only remove surface stains and will not affect the color of your teeth.

The most efficient and safe option is professional chairside teeth bleaching performed by our dentist. Your desired results can often be achieved in just one visit to Kenmore Dental, where you can sit comfortably while we administer the treatment to your teeth. We can also provide at-home teeth whitening in which we provide you with a bleaching gel and a custom tray to wear over your teeth for a few hours.

If you are interested in cultivating whiter teeth, contact Kenmore Dental at 425-485-0588 today to speak with our dentist, Dr. Michael J. Conway, about your teeth whitening options in Kenmore, Washington.
