No: Home remedies? No. Crest whitestrips sold in stores have limitations. There are much more effective methods that dentist use. Start with a dental consultation and then you can make an intelligent informed decision.

Yes: See a dentist who can go over your tooth whitening options. There are lots of relatively simple ways to whiten your teeth. Personally i prefer the custom trays with whitening gels. Sometimes it only take a few days for fantastic results.

Depends: How dark are the teeth? For mild discoloration, or for someone who wants minor color change, try crest whitestrips or cao sheerwhite!. But if you want a moderate or major color change, see your dentist. I have had great success with 1 or 2 in- office zoom! led treatment and dispense custom fit home trays with either 10%, 16% or 22% nitewhite or 14% daywhite. Or kor whitening system.

Cost vs. Value !: With most things in life, you get what you pay for ; 'bargain' methods or products are usually not as effective or have substantial limitations. See your dentist to discuss the many available methods ; then once informed, you can make an intelligent decision. In my opinion, crest whitestrips are relatively effective and less costly than in office professional tooth whitening but have limitations!
