Teeth WhiteningProfessional teeth whitening is a popular procedure in the world of cosmetics. Your teeth are a highly visible part of your facial features and an important part of making an impression on those you meet. It’s not hard to see why many people are choosing to have their teeth whitened. There are various over-the-counter options for teeth whitening, but we recommend having it done in your dentist’s office, and here’s why:

  • In-office teeth whitening treatments produce faster results. You will see the difference as soon as your treatment is complete compared to at-home treatments that take weeks and multiple treatments to produce results. Because the in-office treatment is quicker, it results in less gum irritation and a smaller risk of damaging previous dental work.
  • It is safer to do under your dentist’s care. Whitening your teeth can risk giving you extra teeth sensitivity and damage to the roots of the teeth. Your dentist will be able to better predict if you will have problems with these things, so it is safer to have teeth whitening done under a dentist’s care. If you do have damage to your roots, your dentist will be able to detect it earlier and treat it.
  • Gum and tooth sensitivity is more controlled. At-home whitening treatments can cause increased sensitivity, but your dentist has products that can control for that.
  • Your dentist can use stronger products to whiten your teeth than you are able to do at home. This produces better results. In-office teeth whitening is more reliable than at-home products.
