How effective is teeth whitening toothpaste?

Teeth Whitening Solutions in Dublin area

Do you feel self-conscious about your smile because of the color of your teeth? Do you have naturally darker teeth, or have you noticed discoloration happening over time? 

Our teeth are subjected to staining with the foods we eat and even the medications we take. When you visit StarBrite Dental in Dublin, California, you can work with our team to brighten your smile and lift away dark stains. However, many patients ask about whitening toothpaste as an alternative to professional whitening. Let’s discuss each option and determine which is most appropriate for you!

Teeth whitening solutions available at StarBrite Dental

Bleaching teeth with or without the help of a dentist is often a goal for many of our patients with imperfect, discolored smiles. There are a few different approaches that our team might recommend based on the severity of your discoloration:

  • Whitening toothpaste. Whitening toothpastes are readily available over the counter at your local drugstore. They can be used each time you brush your teeth to lighten natural tooth enamel. However, while mildly effective, these often do not provide the whitening patients truly desire
  • Take-home whitening trays. Our practice is pleased to offer take-home whitening trays and bleaching gels that our patients can use in the privacy of their own homes. The trays are made using impressions of the natural teeth, ensuring proper fit and function for each individual. Bleaching gel is used in the trays, and they are worn as directed to brighten the teeth gradually
  • In-office power bleaching. Alternatively, patients wanting fast, same-day results can ask us about our in-office power bleaching service, done right in the dentist’s chair, and can brighten the natural tooth enamel up to eight shades whiter in just one visit. Our experienced dental team monitors the entire process to ensure safety and efficiency
