Teeth whitening treatment is designed to bleach out discolorations in the teeth as well as improve your smile. Although whitening agents are often found in mouthwash, toothpaste, and even chewing gum, the most safe and powerful form remains professional teeth whitening. Here are the most popular types of teeth whitening:

– The most common type of teeth whitening treatments are over-the-counter products such as toothpaste, mouthwash, and whitening strips. These can be purchased online or at local drugstores and supermarkets. Some of these products are untested and unsafe. Others are ineffective. Before you use any over-the-counter teeth whitening product, we suggest that you speak with our dentist or search for products that feature the ADA seal of approval. These products have undergone rigorous testing to make sure they do what they say they do without weakening your teeth.

– The fastest and safest option for whitening your teeth is to set an appointment for a professional whitening treatment from Dr. Hoang H. Drouin. A professional whitening treatment in our office takes an hour or less. Keep in mind that more than one whitening treatment may be needed, depending on your goals and level of staining. Not only will your smile look better; it will be whitened properly.

– If you would like to treat your smile at home but would like the power of a professional whitening, we have just the thing. An at-home whitening system can be offered by our dentist for use in your spare time. These systems are designed to be safe and effective. At-home whitening can help you touch up any problem areas after a professional in-office treatment. They also enable you to fight back against stains on your own time.

If you have yellowed, stained or discolored teeth, you can visit Lake Norman Smiles for treatment. With the help of Dr. Hoang H. Drouin and our wonderful team at our dentist office in Mooresville, North Carolina, we can return your smile to its former brightness. To book an appointment, call us at 704-664-7774.
