Longing for a whiter smile? Today, it is possible to address staining at home with the help of teeth whitening products. CVS has a wide range of oral care products like toothbrushes and floss available online and in stores at great prices to suit your needs.
Food, drinks, tobacco and medications can all discolor your teeth, and your teeth naturally become more yellow as you age due to changes in the thickness of enamel. Teeth whitening products typically address staining using one of two active ingredients: hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. These ingredients produce a whitening effect.
Teeth whitening products come in a variety of forms. Whitening toothpastes or teeth whitening strips are easy to add to your daily oral care routine and can improve the appearance of teeth gradually over time.
Whitening treatments produce results more rapidly. Most are used once daily for a set period of time and can produce noticeable results with one course of treatment. You can choose brush-on treatments, gels with trays, flexible whitening strips and other treatments.
Before using teeth whitening products, it is important that you talk to your dentist. While whitening products are generally safe, they are not ideal for everyone. Your dentist can help you decide what type of teeth whitening product will give you the best results for your smile.
