Self Applied Tooth Whitening
There are many over the counter products that claim to whiten teeth.
For many people, the low potency of the active agents in these products is sufficient and may result in whitening the teeth by 2 or more shades.
As with any tooth whitening products, there may be some toth sensitivity that occurs during treatment. That sensitivity is more likely to occur in younger patients or in patients that have cavities.
For patients for whom more whitening is desired than can be achieved with over the counter products, the more potent products available at the dentist’s office will be required.
