Their take-home teeth whitening trays are easy to use and can whiten your teeth by several shades before your next holiday gathering. Dental Group West proudly serves patients throughout Toledo, OH, Bowling Green, Sylvania, Oregon, Perrysburg, and the surrounding communities.
Holiday Teeth Whitening Options: Which Is Best?
- Teeth Whitening Toothpastes– Teeth whitening toothpastes can’t deliver on their teeth whitening promise. These toothpastes don’t contain the bleaching agents necessary to whiten your enamel. They can only polish away the shallow surface stains you may acquire during the day. If you do choose to use whitening toothpaste, it’s best to do so as a way to maintain the whitening results of a more effective treatment.
- Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening Products– These products can come in many varieties including whitening strips, gels, rinses, or whitening trays. However, it can take many weeks of daily use for these treatments to have the same whitening effects of professional whitening products. Additionally, these products contain harsh chemicals that may irritate your teeth and gums.
- Professional Take-Home Teeth Whitening– Dental Group West offers a quick and easy professional teeth whitening solution with their take-home whitening trays. These customized trays can be worn at home at your leisure, and will effectively whiten your teeth without causing gum discomfort or irritation.

A missing tooth can cause you to miss out on enjoying your life. It can affect your willingness to laugh and smile or eat the foods you love. To replace a missing tooth permanently, you have two basic choices, either a dental bridge or a dental implant. It’s important to get all of the facts before you make such a big decision as permanently replacing a missing tooth. A missing tooth should be replaced to protect your other teeth from moving, and to preserve your bone and jaw structures.The dentists at Dental Group West want to help you restore your smile in the least painful manner possible. Contact their Toledo office today to set up a Sedation Dentistry appointment to replace your missing tooth and restore your smile.
What are Dental Bridges?
A dental bridge is a frame with two attached dental crowns and a replacement tooth (pontic) in the middle. The crowns are fitted over the adjacent teeth of the missing tooth. To fit the crowns, the adjacent teeth must be shaved down and the pontic is positioned in the gap over the gums. Besides adversely affecting the adjacent teeth, dental bridges do not replace the missing tooth root which could lead to misalignment among the surrounding teeth and in the jaw bone.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are small titanium rods that can be surgically inserted into the jaw to replace the root of the missing tooth. Once the rod is placed, a synthetic but realistic looking prosthetic tooth is attached. During the healing process the jawbone will grow around the implant, cementing it in place. The implant can completely replace the natural tooth in both form and function. Dental implants are more expensive than dental crowns, but are the more natural looking and feeling alternative.
