Patients who are self-conscious about tooth discoloration, stained teeth, and dull-looking teeth can undergo a professional tooth whitening treatment to brighten their smile. Professional teeth whitening treatments can enhance your smile and are much more effective than over-the-counter products.

At-home trays: If you get them from your dentist, they’ll make a mold of your teeth to create fitted trays. They’ll give you a strong bleaching gel to use at home. Over-the-counter systems work the same way. But they can cause irritation and may not work as well. Some OTC kits come with a bendable mouthpiece.These work better than one-size-fits-all trays. The bleaching gels that come in these kits aren’t as strong as the ones you get from a pro.
