5 tips whiter teeth

Almost everyone wants a whiter smile, but whitening your teeth can often give you a little more than you bargained for.

It cannot be stressed enough that it is not advisable to do any type of whitening without consulting your dentist first.  The primary ingredient in most tooth whitening products is peroxide, which can cause tremendous tooth sensitivity, gum irritation and even burns if not applied correctly.  Never use whitening systems on your own or with anyone who is not a dental professional.

At Southern Delaware Dental Specialists, we provide several different bleaching options to help you achieve your whitest smile.  Your dentist or your hygienist will be more than happy to recommend the safest, most effective type to meet your specific needs.
