The Truth About Teeth Whitening

If you watch television at all or have seen any commercials online, you’ve probably had your fill of hearing about teeth whitening products. Some days it seems like every other commercial is about the latest wonder-product to whiten your teeth and give you a better smile. My name is Dr. Jaime Morales, and I’m a dentist in the Perth Amboy area.
You could say that teeth whitening is a big part of my business, so it always interests me when I hear about the latest and greatest whitening discovery out there.

I want to see all my patients who visit me at my Perth Amboy office to get the smile that they want, but I also want them to avoid products that may not work, or worse yet, that may actually harm their teeth.

Whitening Strips

Probably the most popular of the teeth whitening products are the whitening strips. These products can make teeth a little whiter, but the effect soon wears off after you quit using them. These things aren’t cheap either, so when patients come to see me at my office, located at 285 High Street, 08861, I usually tell them about some of the other teeth whitening alternatives that we can use to achieve a longer lasting brightness for their teeth

What about Other Teeth Whitening Products?

It’s amazing the sheer amount and variety of things that people will apply to their teeth to get them whiter. Many of these systems are not approved by dentists and can potentially add up to big problems. Remember that no gimmick should ever fill in for regular visits to your dentist.

If you are looking for a dentist for your family, give my Perth Amboy office a call at 732-826-0410 to set up a consultation with me!

I, Dr. Morales, can answer any questions that you might have about safe tooth whitening procedures.
