How to Whiten Your Smile at Home
December 15, 2016
If you’re dissatisfied with a lackluster smile, come on down to Toms River Smiles Dental. We provide in-office and at-home teeth whitening solutions that will help you to have the smile of your dreams. Since smiles are so important to first impressions, coming to our office to get your teeth whitened can boost your confidence in everyday life.
Moderately stained teeth can often be whitened by using an at-home dental bleaching gel. Most of these bleaching gels use concentrated hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. These occur in concentrations that are much stronger than you will find in retail whitening toothpaste or strips.
To use dental bleaching gel, you will simply pour a little gel into the tray provided and will insert it into your mouth for a specific amount of time. Should any of the bleaching gel seep onto your gums, you need to remove it immediately with a clean cotton swab. Prolonged exposure to the gel can cause significant irritation to sensitive gum tissues.
