Your regular dental checkup and cleaning usually includes a tooth polishing procedure as part of the cleaning. This procedure is effective at removing mild surface stains. However if you enjoy food and drinks that cause minor stains, then tooth whitening strips can help maintain your white smile between your dental cleaning sessions.

Teeth whitening strips are popular for people on the go because most brands allow you to wear them just about anywhere. Most brands use a topical form of hydrogen peroxide as their primary whitening agent. The most common brands require you wear the strips for around one half hour per day.

You should avoid using tobacco or eating and drinking while the whitening strips are in your mouth.
