Not much: Most OTC tooth whitening products are pretty much useless. Most use chemicals of abrasives to eliminate surface discoloration, but most discolorations are in, rather than on. Best advice, see your Dentist for a professional cleaning. dentist can then develop an in-office and at-home regimen for you to whiten and brighten your teeth and keep them that way.
