Do you brush and floss twice daily, but your teeth never seem to be white? Are you constantly struggling with getting a brighter smile, even if you have optimum health care? Even if you take the greatest of care of your teeth, it does not guarantee they will be ultra-white as someone’s smile from a beauty magazine. Luckily, there are options available to make your teeth much whiter than ever before. Teeth-whitening systems have become very popular, and with the help of Dr. David Umansky, they can be extremely safe and effective too.

There are three types of teeth whitening systems available: by dentists done in-office, by dentists for at-home use, and over the counter. With a safe, effective tooth-whitening treatment, your result could last for over a year.

In-office whitening is the safest and most effective. You can have your teeth whitened up to 10 shades. In addition, your gums are protected from the materials in the treatment. In many of the best whitening systems, there is a special feature that can actively protect tooth enamel from damage. The whitening trays are also custom fitted to your teeth, resulting in a much cleaner, tighter, whiter, and brighter result.

Dentists may also recommend specific teeth whitening products for at home use.
Over-the-counter whitening systems can be hit-or-miss. Many of the products can be dangerous to your teeth and gums, and some have shown to not even work at all. Before using any over-the-counter teeth whitening kits, please consult your dentist.

Always remember to properly care for your teeth and gums. If you experience any tooth discomfort or tooth sensitivity with any product, be sure to consult your dentist.
