Have you tried every available store bought teeth whitening strip, gel, paste, and mouthwash without seeing the results you’re after? How about all those dubious DIY teeth whitening solutions like brushing with charcoal or applying mashed strawberries to your teeth? You’re not alone.

In this post, we’ll discuss the benefits of in-office and at-home teeth whitening, so you’ll have a better idea which is the right option for you.
