If you’re interested in having a whiter and brighter smile, then you should consider using a whitening treatment! Fortunately, there are many whitening treatments available. Some are over-the-counter whitening treatments while others are professional. Today, our dentist, Dr. Michael Lemme, is happy to tell you all about over-the-counter whitening.

Over-the-counter whitening typically involves treatments you can use at home and on your own time. Some treatments are whitening toothpaste, some are whitening strips and some are whitening kits. No matter which product you choose, remember that it’s always best to discuss your options with your dentist so you can select the safest product for your smile.

Over-the-counter whitening treatments usually only whiten small, minor tooth stains. This is because they don’t contain the strongest whitening solution. So, if you only want to brighten your smile one or two shades, go ahead and start the treatment! When you whiten your smile, make sure to follow the instructions closely. If you misuse the product, you can irritate your gums and harm the smile.
