The Main Options for Whitening Your Smile

Most people long for a beautiful smile they can be proud of. Teeth-whitening treatments have been known to be successful at improving your smile and the appearance of your teeth, which makes them a popular form of cosmetic dentistry. Our dentists, Dr. Hoang Truong and Dr. Asma Sajid with Gateway Oaks Dental in Sacramento, California, take pride in providing you with high-quality care and are happy to help you understand the ways you can whiten your smile.

Remember, with any medical product it is important to talk to your dentist about which option is best for you. Your dentist will know the perfect method for your unique smile. There are three main methods of teeth-whitening treatments. These treatment choices include:

In-office teeth-whitening treatments:

In-office teeth-whitening treatments are a wise choice when it comes to whitening your teeth. Our in-office whitening procedures are the safest and most efficient way to whiten your teeth in as little as one visit to your see your dentist. Because you are in the care of an expert, your gums and teeth have a lower risk of damage from overexposure of the whitening chemicals, and you can start seeing results very quickly.

At-home teeth-whitening kits:

Many people would rather whiten their teeth on their own time. That is why many dentists offer kits you can take home and use when you are ready. These kits are successful at whitening your teeth, and since they come recommended by your dentist, you know you have a first-class product that is safe to use for your smile.

Over-the-counter teeth-whitening treatments:

There are many teeth-whitening brands to choose from when you are at the store. Unfortunately, many people misuse them without realizing it, which causes more damage to their teeth than good. That is why it is always best to talk to your dentist before trying any form of whitening treatment.
