Shop Wisely for Teeth Whitening Products

Today, teeth whitening products are more widely available than ever. Patients are faced with countless different over-the-counter brands to choose from, but not all of these products are effective or even safe. When shopping for teeth whitening products, use caution. Many products contain abrasive materials that can damage your teeth if you aren’t careful.

Whitening toothpaste is one of the biggest culprits. If used too much or too often, many whitening toothpastes will wear down the protective enamel layer of your teeth, eventually causing the yellow dentin layer to show through. This defeats the entire purpose of tooth whitening in the long run. Additionally, over-the-counter whitening gels usually contain a lower percentage of hydrogen peroxide compared to their professional counterparts, leading to less effective results overall.

Dr. Quartuccio and Dr. Frye offer a variety of professional tooth whitening options for patients in the Pittsburgh, Allison Park, and Oakland areas of Pennsylvania. A single in-office Zoom! teeth whitening procedure can dramatically brighten your teeth, or you can opt for the Zoom! take-home whitening trays to whiten your teeth at your own convenience. By supervising your treatment and offering superior products, we can help you transform your smile quickly, safely, and effectively.
