The natural processes of aging along with factors like tobacco use, staining foods and drink can cause unappealing stains on your teeth. How deeply stained your teeth are will directly influence the whitening products or procedures needed to give you a bright, white smile.

Make sure you talk to your dentist before starting any tooth whitening program. They are trained to help you find the right products or procedures for bright white smile you’ve always wanted.

Whitening strips are popular because you can wear them while you’re on the go. You simply apply the strips over your teeth and they will whiten while you’re on the go. They use topical hydrogen peroxide as the primary whitening agent. The concentrations are slightly stronger than you find in whitening toothpaste. While you have them in you should avoid eating, drinking and using tobacco.

The concentration of whitening agents in the strips can only brighten teeth with minor to moderate staining issues. If you have deeply stained teeth, you should talk to your dentist about a dental bleaching procedure.
