Are you afraid to smile because of your stained teeth? Don’t let the prospect of a dim smile prevent you from experiencing more happiness in your life. One solution is to simply accept the teeth you have, but you should know: in this day and age, there are options for correcting the state of your smile. Here are the basics:

Store-Bought Teeth Whitening Kits:

The most common type of teeth whitening treatments are over-the-counter products. These can be purchased online or at local stores. The issue is that these products are unregulated and may not do what they say they do, and in some cases, can end up being harmful to your tooth enamel or even bleach your gums. You’ll want to choose products that carry the ADA seal; these products are tested for safety and effectiveness.

In-Home Teeth Whitening:

Another option is an in-home whitening system. This is composed of a set of customized trays and prescription whitening gel given to you by Dr. James R. Healy. Over a period of weeks, you can treat your teeth. It’s are guaranteed to be safe and effective and can touch up any problem areas and fight back against stains on your own time.

In-Office Teeth Whitening:

The fastest and most effective whitening treatment is an in-office bleaching session with Dr. James R. Healy. In just one session, your teeth will be visibly brighter, and you won’t have to worry about setting aside time at home to bleach your teeth over time.
