Visiting your Ottawa dental professional on a regular basis is important; thorough cleanings and check ups every few months ensure that the oral hygiene of the mouth is where it should be. A brighter smile usually occurs from regular maintenance, but teeth whitening services are another way to take things to another level. Professional teeth whitening is something we offer, but for those who want to be able to do it in the comfort of their own home, there are great options available as well.
The following are some of the best home tooth whitening products as suggested by a professional within the dental industry:
‘Opalescence PF 35% Whitening Gel
Opalescence is known for their whitening products in the dental industry. It contains Carbamide Peroxide and is the first ADA accepted, syringe delivered, take-home bleaching gel that gives you dramatic results in as little as 30 minutes of use without requiring many applications.
Research has shown that the formulation of Lumibrite has resulted in little to no sensitivity while producing excellent results due to its high concentration of Carbamide Peroxide. You get dramatic results in much less time than other whitening products.
Zoom NiteWhite 22% Whitening Gel
NiteWhite is a clinical-grade tooth whitening gel of 22% Carbamide Peroxide. It’s medium strength, so it’s an excellent option for individuals who have some tooth sensitivity but want a whitening gel that’s not too strong or too weak.bIt’s also the only take-home whitener that combines ACP (Amorphous Calcium Phosphate) with Potassium Nitrate and Fluoride enhancing whitening results while minimizing sensitivity.’ (Mara Leighton, businessinsider.com)
When it comes to keeping your teeth white after treatment, diet plays a large role. Limiting the intake of foods/beverages that are known for staining (ex: red wine, coffee, beets, etc.) is key. It’s important to note that the above mentioned products do require a custom mouth tray for optimal effectiveness.
