If you want a brighter, whiter smile, there are a lot of different options available to you. The degree of staining and the primary cause will greatly determine what teeth whitening products or procedures are right for you. Tooth bleaching gel is one of the most powerful ways you can whiten your teeth at home.

It’s important to consult with your dentist before starting any tooth whitening regimen.

If your teeth have minor to moderate stains or you simply have not been satisfied with the results you’ve seen from other retail level products, then you might want to try using a dental bleaching gel. Most of these gels use carbamide peroxide or concentrated hydrogen peroxide as their primary whitening agent.

To use the gel, you simply pour a little of it into the tray provided, then insert it into your mouth for the amount of time specified by the manufacturer. Any excess gel on your gums you should be removed immediately with a clean cotton swab before it irritates your gum tissues.

If you have deeply stained teeth you may want to try our in-office tooth bleaching procedure. The concentration of bleaching agents in our procedure is the most effective way to remove stains from your teeth.
