Q1. True or false – Over-the-counter teeth whitening products don’t always work that well.

Q2. True or false – Yellow or stained teeth are make you look older.

Q3. True or false – If you want a dentist to whiten your teeth, in-office laser bleaching is your only option.


A1. True – You are taking a bit of a gamble if you invest in a teeth whitening product from your local drugstore.  So many whitening products that might look like money-savers actually prove to be money-wasters.  This is why more patients are turning to their dentists for help to reverse discoloration of their teeth.  If you are certain that over-the-counter whitening products are your only option, ask your dental hygienist or dentist for recommendations.

A2. TRUE – Yellowing, dulling, and stains on teeth are common signs of aging. Teeth whitening can take years off of your appearance, and give you an inner confidence that makes you feel great about your smile.

A3. FALSE – Many dental offices offer both in-office and at-home teeth whitening options. The disadvantage of whitening at home is that the process may take two to three weeks for great results, whereas in-office treatments like Zoom! are done in an hour or two. The benefit to at home whitening for some people is flexibility and touch-ups. Not only can you implement your whitening treatments when and where you want to, but you can also keep the customized trays and order more bleaching gel through your dentist for years to come.
