Ask the Experts: Whitening

My teeth seem to be ‘yellowing’ as I get older. Is there something I can do to lighten them?

Stains from age, coffee, colas or smoking can be removed by a handful of options.  Home products include toothpaste, gels, and strips.  Toothpastes remove stains by mild abrasion.  Gels and strips usually contain peroxides that bleach the teeth. In-office bleaching, such as the Zoom system available in many private offices, may be completed in a few hours and may result in many shades of improvement. Still some of the best results for your money is the custom fit tray and gel you control yourself.
