Are you looking for a whiter smile? Do you wish your smile wasn’t dull or was white and bright like you see on TV? If so, then you are reading the right blog! There are multiple ways to whiten your teeth, and the safest way is always by talking to your dentist first.

Our dentist, Dr. George Yzaguirre in Corpus Christi, Texas, cares about your smile and is happy to share some information on teeth-whitening treatments.

Here are some tidbits of information about whitening your teeth:

-Studies have shown that an overwhelming amount of people consider an attractive smile an essential attribute for a person’s appearance. Whiter teeth have even been linked to potential career success.

-Several forms of teeth whiteners can whiten your smile, but the most effective are whitening trays delivered at your dentist’s office.

-Everyday products that can include teeth whiteners include whitening strips, chewing gum, dental floss, toothpaste, and mouthwash.

-Store-bought whitening systems vary in effectiveness. If used incorrectly, some can bleach your gums and eat through your tooth enamel.

-Before using any whitening products, it’s generally a good idea to speak with your dentist beforehand.
