Turning Yesterday's Yellow Teeth into Today's White Sparklers
Can't decide how to begin your journey to the perfect smile? Here are some general details about each option to help you make an educated decision on how to whiten your yellow teeth.
- In-house bleaching is done at your dentist’s office and includes the application of a bleaching agent directly to your teeth. Special lights or lasers may also be used to enhance the performance of the bleach. Depending on the condition of your yellow teeth, you may have one or several treatments that range from approximately 30 minutes to an hour.
- At-home whitening options include over the-counter whitening strips and gels, both of which use peroxide-based whitening gel. Initial results are typically seen in just a few days and last for up to twelve months for products. These options are more economical. Try Crest 3D White Professional Effects professional-level whitening results and noticeably whiter teeth in just 3 days.
- Finally, whitening toothpastes and rinses are also available over the counter and provide a simple and inexpensive way to help brighten your yellow teeth. Try Crest 3D White Vivid Paste and Multi-Care Whitening Rinse from the Crest 3D White collection of products.
No matter what you decide, it's always a good idea to consult with your dentist about your yellow teeth before starting a whitening program.
