Different Options for Teeth WhiteningThese days, a gleaming white smile is an essential part of looking your best. Fortunately, you have many options for whitening your smile. Dr. Zadeh, cosmetic dentist in Beverly Hills, can help you decide which option is right for your needs.

Perhaps the most effective whitening option is an in-office whitening treatment. Most of these treatments use a potent hydrogen peroxide gel to penetrate the tooth enamel and whiten the teeth. These treatments vary in overall effectiveness, but most can whiten the teeth by as much as 5 to 8 shades.

Another option is a take-home whitening kit, provided by Dr. Zadeh, Beverly Hills teeth whitening specialist. These kits are useful for touching up your teeth between whitening treatments. Using a take-home kit can extend the life of your in-office treatment.

If you prefer to try an over-the-counter treatment, there are many options. Two of the most popular options are peroxide gels and whitening strips. These options take several days to two weeks to whiten the teeth, and they are not as effective as in-office treatments. However, they are good options for those who are looking to cut costs, and they will whiten the teeth noticeably over time.

Finally, whitening toothpastes are a good option for those who just need to whiten their teeth a few shades. These toothpastes are inexpensive and can provide noticeable results within a few weeks. However, they are abrasive and should not be used long term because they wear down the tooth enamel.
