Do Over The Counter Teeth Whitening Kits Work?

Posted on 2/21/2022 by Fern Creek Dentistry
Do Over The Counter Teeth Whitening Kits Work?Over-the-counter teeth whitening kits have been popular for decades, but that doesn't mean they're the best way to go if you're in the market for teeth whitening solutions. There are plenty of options on the market, from kits that contain strips to help remove surface stains to dental trays that fit over your own teeth and help whiten them from the inside out. Each has its benefits and drawbacks, so it's important to seek advice from our dentist before shopping around in order to pick the perfect product for you.


There are plenty of advantages to whitening your teeth at home. A perk of doing over-the-counter teeth whitening is convenience. Just schedule an appointment; all you have to do is seek best advice on product and use it as prescribed until your smile starts looking brighter.


Cons of doing over-the-counter teeth whitening kits are that you might be damaging your teeth. It will take more than a few days for it to show good results. And sometimes, if you already have white teeth, it will not show any improvement. Some people with sensitive teeth experience pain and sensitivity when they use these kits. But there are lots of positive things about OTC whiteners too. You can whiten your smile in just a few days at your home and then making trips for a treatments done in a dentist's.

Whats ideal.

For best results, your teeth whitening kit should include a peroxide gel that contains at least 10 percent carbamide peroxide; along with an LED light or bleaching accelerator and a mouth guard, toothbrush and other accessories. The kit should also come with easy-to-follow instructions, especially if you're applying it for the first time. And like all products claiming to do wonders for your smile, your teeth whitening kit should carry at least some sort of money-back guarantee.
