A healthy, white smile is not just appealing to other people. Knowing that you have dazzling white teeth will boost your self-confidence. But what is the best way to secure a gleaming grin? There are plenty of products on the shelves that claim to give you white teeth. There gels, strips kits, toothpastes, and rinses, all of which tout their ability to whiten your smile.

Before you make a change to your oral hygiene routine, you should first talk with your dentist to see if there is a product that she recommends. Since no one knows your mouth and teeth, as well as your dentist, she, can tell you whether or not a product will work for you, or if it is even safe for you to use.

The in-office whitening treatment offered by our dentist, Dr. Summer Enlow is safe and effective. It is administered through a peroxide gel in a tray which you hold in your mouth. The gel breaks up the stains on your teeth and makes them more difficult to notice. You will notice a difference after the first treatment. Your dentist can also give you a kit to take home so that you can maintain your new smile.

Part of keeping your smile white is to avoid foods, beverages, and habits that can darken it. Dark colored foods and drinks, including coffee, tea, and soft drinks can dim your smile. If you smoke or use tobacco, now would be a great time to kick the habit.
