If you’re planning on whitening your smile with over-the-counter whitening strips, then you could be on your way to a whiter and brighter smile. However, that’s only the case if you follow the instructions and do what you need to do to provide top-notch results. To help you, our dentist, Dr. Krupakar Reddy Yeturu, is happy to give you the instructions you need to properly use an over-the-counter whitening strip treatment.

First, place the strip over your teeth before you brush your smile. This can help the whitening strips adhere to your enamel much better. All you need to do is remove the liner from the strip and place the gel side on your teeth and along the gumline. Press the strip against your teeth for the best contact and fold the remainder of the strip behind your teeth.

Second, read the instructions. Note how many times a day and how long you should wear the strips. Each product will vary with the instructions, so don’t assume it’s like the last whitening product you used. When you read and follow the teeth whitening instructions, you’ll have the best results possible.
