Our dentist, Dr. Pamela Crumrine in Beaver, Pennsylvania, understands why many people want a whiter smile. However, many people are causing harm to their teeth or not understanding the options they have for teeth-whitening treatments. That is why we are happy to provide this information for you on how to whiten your teeth.

Many people actively try to have a whiter smile every day. One of the reasons is, as we age, our teeth naturally fade and begin to dull. Fortuitously, there are professional teeth-whitening treatments that can be used to improve the color of your teeth, making them white. Over-the-counter teeth-whitening strips in most cases can only remove light surface stains and are not strong enough to lift the deep stains that could be harming your smile. It is also known that over-the-counter kits can lead to sensitivity, creating more damage than good. That is why having a professional treatment with your dentist is always the safest way to a beautiful, white smile.

Dental bleaching may not work everyone. Depending on their oral health and situation the treatment may cause harm or irritation to their gums. For example, those struggling with periodontal disease may become sensitive to the bleaching. That is why talking to your dentist is vital to finding the healthiest way to whiten your smile.
