Thinking of whitening your teeth? You may be tempted to grab an over-the-counter product from your nearest drugstore. It’s easy enough, but there are actually plenty of reasons why you should choose professional teeth whitening instead. We go over some of the reasons why the professional route is better for you in the long run.
Produces Better Results
With professional teeth whitening, there is a higher concentration of gel so you get a more dramatic and effective treatment in less amount of time. That means you won’t have to wait as long to get your desired shade of pearly whites!
Safest When Supervised
Instead of figuring out the right (and safest) way to whiten your teeth at home, you can leave it in the hands of a professional who is there to make sure you aren’t experiencing any sensitivity issues. Plus the trays and gel strips you can find at the store aren’t customized to fit the unique shape of your teeth, which could lead to irritation. Getting professional teeth whitening means getting someone who is looking out for your health as well as your smile.
Flexibility & Personalization
Another benefit to trusting your teeth whitening to a dentist is that he or she can recommend the method that’ll give the best results based on your needs. The current color of your teeth, how much enamel wear you have, and whether you have any restorations can all affect your whitening treatment.
For example, at Farmington Dental Center & Orthodontics, we have both in-office, one-visit whitening that only takes around an hour, as well as custom-tray whitening that you can take home. When your whitening treatment is personalized to your goals, there’s a greater chance you’ll get the results you want!
