Are you interested in whitening your smile with an over-the-counter treatment? If so, our dentist, Dr. Marc Resnick, would like to help you. Because there are many different treatments available, it can be tough to select the right product for your teeth, gums, and smile. So, he would like to give you some information that can help you select the best over-the-counter whitening treatment.

The first tip is to look for the amount of peroxide contained in the product. Peroxide is the whitening solution that removes the surface stains from your teeth. Now, it might seem like the more peroxide, the better, but that’s not true. Sometimes if your chompers are only mildly stained, you don’t need as much peroxide. If you have too much peroxide exposure, it can lead to discomfort and tooth sensitivity. So, it’s important to ask your dentist about the level of peroxide he recommends in the product.

The second tip is to look for the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance. This logo proves that the product is safe and effective for the smile.
