Have you been down the oral care aisle at the store lately? There is so much to choose from. There are toothpastes, and whitening strips, and mouth rinses, and even gels that you leave on overnight. What these products have in common is a bleaching agent that works on the surface stains of your teeth.
To be fair, some do a pretty good job whitening teeth. But who wants to settle for a pretty good job?
- Toothpaste: Whitening toothpastes can remove minor stains, but don’t do much to change the overall color of your teeth. The whitening agents in them are not potent enough.
- Whitening Strips: Whitening strips have a couple of drawbacks. Here, too, the whitening agent it is not very potent. They also do not whiten between teeth because the strips only touch the front surface.
- Teeth Whitening Gels: Whitening gels are painted onto teeth with a small brush. One problem with whitening gels is that they only stick to dry teeth. If any saliva gets on the teeth during treatment, the gel is more likely to slide off.
