Can you tell me if teeth whitening really works? I’m talking about the dentist kind you see advertised all the time.
I assume you’re talking about professional teeth whitening and not dentist recommended over-the-counter whitening. Yes, professional teeth whitening does work. It will get your teeth white and keep it that way. The old stains do not come back. New stains can appear because of the things we eat and drink. However, getting touch ups is not that expensive.
There are two types of teeth whitening you can get in many dentist’s offices. The first is in-office whitening. Often that is called Zoom whitening, which is a particular brand. This whitens your teeth in just one appointment (about two hours). Another option is at home teeth whitening. Your dentist will provide trays for you to take home and whiten there.
