Do over the counter whitening products work?
Our patients are often confused by all of the claims they see in advertising about teeth whitening products. Each one claims to be the best solution for yellow or stained teeth. While you may see some success with over the counter products, results vary greatly from patient to patient and sometimes do not work at all.
Rinses, toothpastes, strips, gels, and trays each claim to be the solution for whiter teeth. Without the expertise of your dentist and the guidance of a dental professional, you may not achieve the results you want and you may end up with results you do not want.
