Do Whitestrips Work?

Do Whitestrips Work in Salt Lake City?If you have visited the toothpaste aisle at the grocery store lately, you have probably noticed dozens of teeth whitening products. A few years ago, the only over-the-counter options were whitening toothpastes and Whitestrips. Now there is a wide variety. Can any of them compare to the whitening you’ll get at The Sugar House Dentist in Salt Lake City?

Whitening Rinses
Whitening rinses are similar to mouth washes. They kill bacteria, freshen breath and may help remove plaque. They also contain tooth-whitening ingredients not found in mouthwashes.

Manufacturers advise taking a mouthful of the rinse and sloshing it around on your teeth for one minute twice a day. Though this method is manageable, many users never notice a lightening of their teeth. This is probably because the rinse does not touch your teeth long enough to truly whiten them.

Whitening Strips
The whitening strips you can buy in grocery stores have a couple of drawbacks. Though they contain a bleaching agent, it is much less potent than those used in dental offices. Another issue is that they do not whiten between teeth because the strips only touch the front surface. Though it is possible to remove stains, it can take months to see any whitening. By that point, you have probably spent more money than you would have if you’d have chosen the professional system at your dental practice.

Teeth Whitening Gels
Whitening gels are painted onto teeth with a small brush. One problem with them is that they only stick to dry teeth. If any saliva gets on the teeth during treatment, the gel is likely to slide off.

If you are serious about whitening your teeth, the safest, quickest, and the most cost-effective system is at The Sugar House Dentist. Teeth whitening is one of many cosmetic dentistry services we offer. Schedule an appointment today.
