Over-the-counter teeth whiteners
Simply adding a whitening toothpaste, gel, or mouthwash to your oral routine can reduce teeth discoloration. These over-the-counter products contain a smaller concentration of bleaching ingredients than in-office whitening treatments, helping to brighten the smile. Remember to always follow the instructions on the pack to ensure that you are using the whitener correctly.
Although at-home and otc products may not help with intrinsic stains (stains within the tooth's structure), your dentist may recommend in-office whitening treatments for tougher stains caused by certain medications or health conditions.
