Why should I consider professional teeth whitening?
With all those whitening kits and products on the market today, you may be wondering why you should to turn to a professional cosmetic dentist for teeth whitening. The answer is simple—drug store kits and toothpaste rarely deliver the results they promise, and the little improvements they actually do provide are often incredibly short-lived.
Therefore, you will want to undergo professional teeth whitening if:
- You have severe discolorations and stains
- You want fast results
- You want to avoid or minimize tooth sensitivity associated with teeth whitening
- You want a professional to do the work for you
Should I get in-office or at-home whitening?
While your dentist can certainly give you the results you want with chairside whitening, you might still prefer to whiten from the convenience of your own home. That’s completely fine! Our dentists are also happy to talk to you about your at-home whitening options.
Professional at-home whitening should not be confused with the whitening products that you can get over-the-counter at your local drugstore without a prescription. During this treatment, your dentist will create custom-made whitening trays that perfectly fit over your teeth. This is in stark contrast with those bulky, one-size-fits-some trays that you are in commercial whitening kits. Furthermore, the gel your dentist offers will contain a higher percentage of the active whitening ingredient than over-the-counter options can provide.
To figure out whether you should undergo chairside whitening or at-home whitening treatment here are some things to consider,
- How quickly you want to see results
- The severity of your stains
- Your dedication to using your whitening treatment on schedule
