Have you been dreaming of a brighter, whiter smile like the ones you see on the screens? Not sure which teeth whitening treatment may be right for you? When it comes to teeth whitening, all treatment options are not created equal. At Encanto Family Dental Care we often see patients who are tired of over-the-counter teeth whitening products that leave them with tooth sensitivity, gum irritation, and no results. Today, we’re discussing store-bought, in-office and take-home teeth whitening and the benefits of each. We hope that you learn something new and can make a more informed decision when it comes to whitening your smile.
When it comes to teeth whitening treatments you can purchase in a store, they often aren’t very effective. These store-bought teeth whitening treatments are actually designed to remove exterior staining only, leaving interior staining and a discolored smile. Along with providing little to no results, many patients report sensitivity, discomfort, and damage following treatment. We do not recommend these products to our patients at this time.
Professional teeth whitening can be a better teeth whitening option for those that actually want to see results. With professional teeth whitening, your dentist will protect your gums prior to starting treatment to minimize the risk of any damage or discomfort. During treatment, teeth whitening gel may have to be reapplied a few times in order to achieve the results we’d like.
Interested in professional teeth whitening but want to whiten your smile in the comfort of your own home? Take-home professional teeth whitening kits can be an excellent option for those interested in teeth whitening at home or even those interested in keeping up with their teeth whitening treatment from home.
