5 Tips to Evaluate Teeth Whitening Options

Looking into your teeth whitening options and just not quite sure which one is going to work for you? You are definitely not alone! There are many teeth whitening options available today, which can make it quite difficult for you to understand which one will ideally work for you and your whitening needs. While you could ask other people what has worked for them so you can get some direction, know that everyone is different, so what works for someone else may not work for you. What you need to do now is follow the below tips so you can evaluate which of the many whitening options available today are going to ideally meet your wants and/or needs.

Tips for evaluating teeth whitening options

The following tips should be considered by those who are looking for a teeth whitening option but cannot quite decide on which one is going to work ideally for them.

#1 – Make sure it has the ADA seal of acceptance

When a tooth whitening product has the ADA seal of acceptance on its package, it means that the product does what it claims to do and it is safe to use.

#2 – Sensitive teeth

When someone is living with sensitive teeth, they will need to choose a whitening option that is made for sensitive teeth.

#3 – Dental health and history

It is important for those who are wanting to whiten their teeth to understand that most teeth whitening options do not whiten fillings, crowns or really dark stains. Those who have dental veneers need to understand that tooth whitening products will not make their veneers whiter.

#4 – In-office vs. over-the-counter

In-office professional whitening treatments require patients to come back for touch-ups about every year or two, while over-the-counter whitening options require weekly and even daily touch-ups.

#5 – Lifestyle

Considering one’s lifestyle is very important when it comes to choosing a whitening option for teeth. Busy people should find out how much time they need to commit to a certain teeth whitening process before making the commitment.
