It’s no secret that your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. Taking good care of your teeth can keep them looking healthy, but you still may not achieve the color you want. While there are ways to whiten teeth at home, professional teeth whitening can give you the bright smile you crave. Here are a few reasons to choose professional teeth whitening.
While plenty of at-home teeth whitening products line store shelves, these products have a lower concentration of peroxide and usually take multiple applications to see any difference. Conversely, professional teeth whitening treatments offer almost instant, dramatic results from a single session.
For some, tooth sensitivity is one of the most common side effects of teeth whitening treatments. At-home whitening products, while safe when used precisely, can cause major sensitivity if left on for too long or if used too often. Professional treatments are used for the exact amount of time and include desensitizers for minimal sensitivity.
Because whitening strips or bleaching products may irritate your gums and cause discomfort, it’s important to verify that you are a good candidate for bleaching. Before your dentist performs any whitening treatments, they can verify the health of your teeth and gums in order to choose the best method for whitening your smile. Instead of worrying about harming your teeth, you can relax and enjoy a whiter smile.
Because at-home teeth whitening treatments take so long to use, you would think the results would be long-lasting as well. The unfortunate truth is if the do-it-yourself treatments were lasting, the companies wouldn’t be able to sell as many products because you wouldn’t need to buy them as often. Professional teeth whitening contains superior ingredients that will keep your smile shining for a much longer time.
Professional Application Means Even Results
Do-it-yourself teeth whitening may seem easy to use, but application is a universal process rather than a personalized one. The whitening products may not cover all of the teeth or correct all kinds of staining, which can lead to uneven results. Dentists are trained to apply professional whitening in a way that provides even results for your specific smile.
