We all want a dazzling white smile and it’s become easier and easier to achieve a more beautiful smile with the variety of treatments and products available at both the doctor’s office and on retail store shelves. When it comes to at-home options, there are many choices for at-home use and they are easy to use, easy to find and relatively inexpensive (compared to doctor office treatments).
Among the many options for at-home use are teeth whitening toothpastes, gels, trays and rinses. WebMD confirms that teeth whitening is ideal for people who have healthy, unrestored teeth (no fillings) and gums. Individuals with yellow tones to their teeth respond best. But this cosmetic procedure is not recommended for everyone and you should speak to your doctor before trying one out.
