Tips For Choosing The Right Teeth Whitening Treatment For You
Interview the dentist and the practice. Don't just consider your own dentist, but consider a qualified dentist who does whitening daily.
Do not base your decision on price. Choose the most qualified professional--experience counts.
Buy only from dentists who have a multitude of options available (one-hour light procedure, Gel and Tray, Whitening Strips, etc).
Educate yourself on the benefits and shortfalls of all whitening options and listen to what the dentist recommends.
Only perform whitening under a qualified dentist's supervision. According to the FTC, many over-the-counter products make false or unproven claims and can mislead consumers.
