Why You Should Opt for Professional Teeth Whitening ServicesMay 20, 2016
Many patients seek a bright, white smile, and many companies know this. That is why we see all sorts of products in the toothpaste aisle that promote their ability to remove stains and discoloration. This includes complete whitening kits to strips. These products can even be found at malls and fairs.
If you want whiter teeth from the most dependable source, a professional in-office teeth whitening is your answer. A typical procedure uses a special peroxide gel and activating light to bleach away stains without damaging your tooth structure. It improves your teeth by several shades, without any pain or discomfort.
When you walk down the dental health aisle at the store, remember that some of these whitening products aren’t formulated by dental professionals. When you hop in the chair of a qualified dental office, you are putting your smile in more trusted and qualified hands.
Special whitening trays are also available. Similar to in-office whitening, it uses peroxide-based gels for effective results. Since there is no light, the process can be slower, but done at your convenience. The trays will be worn for a short period of time, usually twice per day for 15 minutes or overnight. The gel is placed in the most needed areas because the trays are customized specifically for your teeth.
Many older teeth whitening methods involve brushing with baking soda or using abrasion, the short-term results aren’t worth the long-term damage that may occur to your teeth.
