Dr. Svans discusses ways to whiten your teeth at home.
The question I get a lot of times from patients are, are there any other ways I can whiten my teeth without having to do the in-office treatment or the trays or anything along those lines that, to be honest, ends up costing patient’s money.
Is there any way they can do this, number one, to save some money but to do this naturally?
One thing I will recommend to patients when they say that to me is I point them towards the Sonicare toothbrush.
A Sonicare toothbrush is actually proven to whiten teeth. The toothbrush, the company that stands behind the toothbrush actually has a guarantee that if your teeth are not whiter within about 30 days you can actually return that toothbrush, no questions asked, for a full refund.
So that toothbrush is really one way to whiten your teeth naturally without going through the in-office or the trays.
Another thing I have recommended to patients is to take that maybe a step further, they can actually start using a baking soda or peroxide toothpaste with that Sonicare and I have seen really good results with that.
That will help, it gives it a little bit of abrasive so it kind of helps remove some of those surface stains.
It’s a little different than actually whitening the tooth. They actually are getting the tooth internally to whiten a little bit in addition to removing those surface stains.
