If you want to improve your smile, you are not alone. Most people strive for a white and bright smile they can enjoy in their adult and professional life. However, foods and drinks can often cause your teeth to dull or fade. That is why teeth whitening has become a popular procedure in our society.

The most important thing to always remember with any teeth-whitening treatment is to talk to your dentist, Dr. David Peterson first, so you can find out the best and healthiest option for your unique tooth enamel needs. Usually, your dentist may be able to provide you with a teeth-whitening, take-home treatment filled with the right amount of gel for your needs. This is always popular because you can take it home and do it on your own time making easy.

There are other over-the-counter options you can consider. Some include whitening toothpaste to use after brushing your teeth. Other options include strips or gels. Remember, whatever choice you choose to always read the directions carefully to avoid any damage or increase in sensitivity to your teeth.
