One of the fastest growing fields in dentistry today is teeth whitening. As a society, we crave faster and more efficient ways to perfect our white smile as quickly and effectively as possible. However, with the rush for a whiter smile, there are many products that have begun to spring up that are not all they are touted to be. If you are not careful, you may end up bleaching your gums or damaging your tooth enamel.

As with all oral health care products, always use as instructed. Many stores sell over-the-counter teeth whiteners in a variety of different forms, including as toothpaste, mouthwash, chewing gum, and whitening trays. Always use as intended and never leave whitening trays in longer than directed. Doing so can damage your smile.

If you are looking for a superior smile in a short amount of time, consider getting a professional tooth whitening directly from your dentist at our office. In as little as one hour, we can brighten your teeth by as much as ten shades. Beyond in-office whitening, we can give you trusted whitening systems to use on your own time in the convenience of your own home.

To schedule a tooth whitening treatment or to schedule an oral exam with Dr. Raymond Maddox and our team at our dentist office in Hartford City, Indiana, please contact Maddox Family Dental Center at 765-348-4111. We look forward to helping you soon!
