Do over the counter teeth whitening agents actually work?:
For home whitening, you have two options: whitening toothpastes and home whitening, or “bleaching.” Whitening toothpastes” contain gentle polishing agents that take away surface stain. Whitening toothpastes will only lighten your teeth by about one shade increment. Products for home whitening, or “bleaching,” contain hydrogen peroxide, which removes surface stains as well as stains hiding deep inside the tooth. Like the whitening tooth paste mentioned above, at home whitening will only lighten your teeth by about one shade increment.
