As the weather slowly falls into winter, our trees and leaves may begin to die. However, now is the perfect time to jumpstart your oral hygiene into overdrive to give you the brightest smile of the year.

With so many holidays just around the corner, it may be time to consider a fast-acting treatment that can whiten your smile in as little as one treatment. There are three main types of teeth whitening treatments to choose from:

In-Office Teeth Whitening Treatments: In-office teeth whitening consists of getting professional whitening treatments done by your dentist. It is considered the safest and most effective treatment. In as little as one visit, your teeth can be whitened by up to ten shades. Additionally, your gums are at a much lower risk of damage as many in-office gels include gum protecting ingredients. The whitening trays have the greatest holds and can be custom-designed for your teeth.

Dentist-Provided Teeth Whitening Treatments for At-Home Use: Dentists-recommended products are a somewhat suitable alternative to in-office treatments. However, taking care of your own teeth whitening increases the risks of damage and decreases the effectiveness the product could have.

Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening Systems: Over-the-counter whitening systems are the most unreliable. Many products on the market can be dangerous to your tooth enamel and your gums. Excessive use of some of these products can severely damage or weaken your teeth. Before using any over-the-counter products, it is best to consult with your dentist.
