Are you interested in whitening your smile but you’re not sure if you want to use an over-the-counter or professional at-home treatment? If so, our dentist, Dr. Trevor Salmon, is more than happy to help you choose the right treatment for your smile. Today, he would like to discuss the details of both treatments so you can know more.

Over-the-Counter Whitening

There are many over-the-counter whitening options, like whitening toothpaste, whitening gel, and whitening kits. They can all help you whiten your smile one or more shades, depending on the strength of the whitening. Be careful not to overuse the treatment because it can irritate the gums.

Professional At-Home Whitening

The professional at-home whitening treatment will be customized to your specific smile goals. Your dentist will give you tight-fitting trays and whitening solution, which will be as strong as you need it to be. This treatment can remove minor as well as stubborn stains as well as keep your smile safe.
