Get Brighter & Healthier Smile with Teeth Whitening in Oceanside NY

Who doesn't like the sound of a soda can during lunch time or the smell of fresh brewing coffee in the morning! But the pigments found in these drinks are the exact reasons why you have stained teeth. Along with the beverages, there are foods like berries, citrus fruits, and pomegranates that also stain your teeth. It is no wonder why countless of individuals get teeth whitening in Oceanside NY to get brighter and healthier smile. 


In addition to the teeth whitening procedure, there are other easy ways that you can use to whiten your teeth: 


Whitening Toothpaste

Fortunately, there is no shortage of whitening toothpastes on the market today.  Some whitening toothpastes have calcium carbonate as one of the ingredients while others contain bleaching agents like carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide. These bleaching agents do remove stains, but they can also cause tooth sensitivity in some people. Using a whitening toothpaste is an easy way to remove stains from your teeth. Simply follow your regular routine of brushing your teeth daily, twice a day. 


Tooth Whitening Strips

You can get tooth whitening strips at any one of your local pharmacies. There are two sets of strips - one for your upper teeth and the other for your lower teeth. There is no hassle in applying these strips, simply put the strip on and then leave them in place for the amount of time recommended by the product. About one week later, you will notice the change in the color of your teeth.
